Marriage Green Card Interview

The last step of the marriage green card process is the interview, which is scheduled by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) if the spouse seeking a green card lives in the United States and by the National Visa Center (NVC) if they live abroad.
Although this interview may still be months or later in the future, knowing what to expect will help you feel more confident and prepared when that important day comes.
Whether your interview will take place in the United States or abroad, the interviewing officer’s primary goal will be to determine whether your marriage is authentic — in other words, not based on fraud. Questions can focus on, for example, the history of your relationship, your daily activities as a married couple, and your future plans together.

While you can never be certain about the questions that an interviewing officer will ask, here are some of the most typical questions that couples encounter, grouped by category:


  • How did you meet?

  • Where did some of your first dates take place?

  • How long did you date before deciding to get married?

  • What is the story of your marriage proposal?



  • What was your wedding like?

  • Who attended your wedding?

  • What food was served?

  • Were there any special rituals performed? If so, what kind?

  • Did you go anywhere for your honeymoon? If so, where?



  • What is daily life like for you and your spouse around the house?

  • How do you start your day?

  • How often do you text or talk on the phone when you’re apart?

  • Which of you likes to cook?

  • Which of you likes to clean?



  • How do your kids get to school?

  • Who are their friends?

  • What are their favorite foods?

  • Do they play any sports? If so, what?



  • What side of the bed do you sleep on?

  • What pajamas do you wear?

  • What medications does your spouse take?



  • When are your birthdays?

  • What did you do to celebrate?

  • What did you get each other as gifts?

  • What’s the most important holiday of the year in your household, and where do you typically celebrate it?
