What to Expect in a Green Card Marriage Interview

When you’re applying for your green card, the last step of the process you’ll have to do is go in for your green card marriage interview. If you’re living in the United States, you’ll meet with the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) for your interview. If you’re living outside of the U.S., then you’ll meet with the National Visa Center (NVC). Here’s a rundown of what to expect. 

What Will Happen in the Interview? 

The interviewer is making sure that your marriage is not fraudulent and that the spouse who is applying for citizenship didn’t just marry the other one for the green card. They may ask you about your relationship history, including how you met and what happened during your marriage proposal and subsequent wedding. They might also question you about your daily routine with your spouse, like who cooks and who cleans, and, if you have kids together, what their daily activities typically are like. 

What Documents to Bring

It’ll be helpful for you to bring in documents that show that you and your spouse are actually together. This could include shared credit card statements, your children’s birth certificates (if applicable), shared insurance policies, and shared banking statements. 

Answering the Questions

When you’re answering questions, don’t feel any pressure to paint your life as being perfect. Instead, be honest about what really happens in your day-to-day life. You will be questioned separately from your spouse to ensure that your relationship is real.
