Five Mistakes NOT to Make at your Immigration Interview

The five mistakes you don’t want to make when you go to your immigration interview:

1. You don’t want to forget anything, your documents especially. Go over the list that USCIS sends you and triple check that you have all of your paperwork. If you’re missing documents, a lot of bad things can happen.

2. Don’t guess at your interview. Especially when English isn’t your primary language, it can be easy to misunderstand what the officer is asking. If you don’t understand, ask them to restate the question. Answering wrongly can disqualify you from naturalizing or getting a green card.

3.Don’t interrupt the officer. Each officer has their own rhythm, their own quirks, and their own ways of doing things. Go with the flow of what the officer is asking. Answer concisely. Interrupting the officer will make them upset. If you are confused by what they are asking look to your lawyer.

4.Never lie to the immigration officer. Lying to an officer can permanently disqualify you from ever receiving an immigration benefit. This is one of the reasons why it is good to have an immigration lawyer prepare you for your interview.

5.Never ask an officer for an answer in your interview. Treat it like a job interview. Dress professionally and act with respect towards the officer.

  11. Another word just answer what they ask and listen carefully before you answer the questions. If you don't understand you can ask them to repeat and be polite they even tell you to ask them again if you don't understand the questions. Yes don't guess. And yes NEVER LIE because they would find out. The officers they are actually very nice. They are there just to help you. One little thing you answered incorrectly or start speaking will just might held you back( pending investigation) just go with the flow don't ever get nervous. This process really depends on the officers that interview you. If they see you're nervous or not knowing understanding their questions multiple times thay can be a setback. And DO NOT sit there and think when they ask you questions that is a nay nay. Because to them they might think you have something to hide. Make sure your answers match your application very important part. I became Naturalized and for me it was an easy process. I'm single so that makes my process a lot easier as well mo attachment.
