Frequently Asked Marriage-based Green Card Interview Questions

 

Typically, Marriage-Based Adjustment of Status applications require both the applicant and the spouse to be present for an interview before the case can be approved. For many applicants, the thought of being interviewed by an immigration officer can be stressful and overwhelming. However, applicants who are well-prepared should not worry!
