Sample USCIS Interview Document List

Free Consultation »

It is our opinion that the USCIS interview is the most crucial stage of the process. At the interview, the USCIS officer will request detailed documentation in order to determine the legitimacy of your marriage. If the USCIS officer concludes that you and your foreign spouse have a bona fide marriage then the marriage petition will be approved. Then the USCIS officer will decide the application for permanent residence.

The USCIS officer’s determination is based on questioning as well as documentation. Please note that the sample documents below are the result of our years of experience with this type of case and are intended as a basic guide only. Each USCIS officer will request different documents as the circumstances dictate.
