Examples of Green Card Marriage Questions

Home » Examples of Green Card Marriage Questions

Obtaining a green card through marriage requires an interview with the United Sates Citizenship and Immigration Service. This branch of the U.S. government controls legal residence and immigration in the United States. Interviewees are asked roughly 20 questions once they arrive at the interview. These green card marriage questions are designed to determine if your marriage is genuine.

There are still many cases of marriage fraud in the United States – at least a quarter, according to a study conducted by the Department of Homeland Security a few years ago [1]. Some of these marriages might have even been created under good intentions, such as to keep a friend in the United States.

Unfortunately, no matter the reason, if a marriage for a green card is fake, it is illegal. The green card marriage questions or the research beforehand will determine just that.

If the marriage is deemed fraudulent or fake, then the non-citizen will likely be arrested by ICE and detained. We recommend filing for an immigration bond with same day release, in which you can appeal your arrest or leave on your own terms.

About the Green Card Marriage Interview

The interview is conducted at a USCIS field office. Most standard tests only take between 20 and 30 minutes.

Tips for the Interview

  • Be on time and aim to arrive 30 minutes before your appointment.
  • Dress well. Remember: this is a government meeting and you should dress to impress. Also, dressing well is a sign of respect for the institution.
  • Eat a light snack, or bring one with you. There are some cases where applicants may wait for a few hours before the interview.
  • It’s natural to be nervous. Take a few deep breaths!
  • The green card marriage questions are not tricks. They are simple questions that you can answer calmly.

Green Card Marriage Interview Questions

The following are some of the questions that you can expect to be asked in your green card marriage interview:

  1. What is your spouse’s birthday?
  2. In what city was your spouse born?
  3. What are the names of your spouse's parents?

US immigration bonds were absolutely the best they were super professional. When I was down and out when my husband was detained by immigration they were very caring , knowledgeable, and patient. I called them a thousand times and they were very empathic and helpful everytime I called. they reassures me that everything would be fine, and that they would help me my husband, and my children be reunited again. They did everything they could to get me a same day release. They exceeded my expectations. I would not recommend any company other than US immigration bonds. Us immigration bonds, under promises and over fulfills. They were a true blessing ! Thank you so much again.read more

Jeremy Wolf and his agency have been a terrific resource for me as I delve into this foreign world of bonding a friend out of jail so he and his wife can work on his case on the "outside." Jeremy has been unfailingly polite and informative and his video regarding how to complete the necessary forms was a valuable tool too. The entire process was quick and relatively easy. I especially appreciated not having to deal with a jaded, impatient, figure--it-out-yourself kind of person when I was treading in really unfamiliar territory. My questions were always answered quickly and efficiently.I highly recommend this company in your time of need for quick, efficient and professional service with no attitude or delay.read more

Jeremy Wolf, is compassionate and understanding. He has been there and done it with his own family, and together with his wife they dedicate their time and energy into helping other families come together. I know this because my husband was taken by ICE and his bond was set much higher than I could have imagined, having in my hands at any given time. ... With Jeremy, his wife and the rest of the team we were able to piece together the required 80% and set up a affordable and convient payment plan. It was a grueling process, at times I felt like I was going to loose all my hair, as I ran around selling homemade tamales, and had various other fund raisers going on, along with my husband being detained, I lost my home, my dog and my daughter and I pushed forward with the help and support of Jeremy and his team, if It wasn't for there hours of help and dedication, to put a previous bond for my nephew into action to help my husband, we wouldn't have been able to have him home for the Holidays. ... To Jeremy, Veronica, and Amber, who I spoke with often, and the other parts of the team who I was unable to catch their names, I THANK YOU, FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART!read more
