Don’t Leave Anything to Chance: Know What to Bring for Your Immigration Interview

Don’t Leave Anything to Chance: Know What to Bring for Your Immigration Interview

At STERN Law, it is our responsibility to ensure our clients are prepared for their immigration interview with USCIS or other immigration agencies. This experience could be stressful if you’re not properly prepared for it, but by providing you with the right guidance and proper approach, we hope to alleviate some of that anxiety. Below are a few ways to prepare for your interview.

Remember that the Purpose of the Interview is to Convince the Immigration Officer

It is up to them to determine whether or not you are eligible for the benefits you hope to receive. When you understand and appreciate this, you can better decide what you will need to bring to the interview. This will, of course, depend on which application you file.

Bring Complete Documentation.

During the application process, you will have submitted certain documents in addition to the application itself. You will need to bring a the original documents and copies of them with you for the interview. Authenticity of the documents are verified, and often copies are not sufficient. This includes your passport and green card; make sure to not forget these at home.

Account for Major Changes

Bring evidence of any major life changes like moving or changing your address, finding a job, or having a child. A new employment letter, copies of recent pay stubs, and proof of your new property or rental agreement are acceptable. Pay stubs are especially important, as they show you can financially support yourself.

Consult an Attorney If You Have Criminal Charges

Lastly, if you have a criminal record, it is crucial to talk to an experienced immigration attorney before filing your application. Even a relatively small criminal charge could lead to your status being denied, or in a worse outcome, could place you at the start of the deportation process.
