The Key To A Successful Marriage Green Card Interview

 

The Key To A Successful Marriage Green Card Interview

How do you prove that your marriage relationship is real and genuine and not fake? That’s the key to winning a marriage green card case, and I’m going to give you some tips today.

I’m Josh Goldstein, an immigration lawyer here in Los Angeles. I’m just coming from the Los Angeles District Office of USCIS, where I finished an immigration interview with a couple. And there was one key part of the interview that would be very useful for everyone to know about.

 

The key question

The officer asked the husband and the wife if they had their keys with them. That’s right, their keys. Everybody carries their keys, right? The officer was looking to see whether the husband’s key matched the wife’s key. Presumably, they would have the same key to the same door at the front of their house if they lived together. My clients didn’t have any of their keys with them that day because…

They didn’t drive and there was someone at home, but even if they didn’t drive and even if they had someone at home, it would have been very helpful if they had had their keys with them.

 

Do this one easy thing

If you go to the marriage green card interview and you’re trying to prove that the marriage relationship is real and genuine, what you’re really trying to do is prove that you live together. And a good way to do that is by bringing your keys with you.

That’s my tip for today, and if you have any questions about how to get a green card through marriage, just get in touch with me.
