The person conducting an immigration interview with a married couple wants to make sure the couple is really married and not just going through the motions in order to commit immigration fraud. So they’ll ask you all kinds of questions about your personal life together. If you have children together and have other convincing evidence, the interview may be more of a formality. If the interviewer has doubts as to how real your marriage is, they may dig a little deeper, into the kind of questions that are not asked in polite company.
Quick warning–the questions below, despite being questions individuals have actually been asked at a green card interview, are not suitable for children.
Keep in mind that the husband and wife are interviewed separately.
Question 1: When was your last (or when was your wife’s last) menstrual period?
Question 2: What do you and your spouse wear in bed?
Question 3: What kind of birth control do you use?
Question 4: Are you (or is your husband) circumcised?
You can imagine that other embarrassing questions also get asked. It seems like there are so many non-offensive questions that can be asked that one wonders why the interviewer needs to dive into the embarrassing ones. Perhaps the interviewer has asked a lot of other questions and still has doubts about the validity of the marriage. Or perhaps the interviewer (or maybe his or her boss) is just a pervert. Like all the other questions, though, if you know the answer, answer it honestly. If you’re not sure, don’t guess–just tell the interviewer that you’re not sure. And stay polite. Don’t call the interviewer a pervert for asking these sorts of questions.
Many permanent residency interviews don’t involve embarrassing questions. If yours does, deal with it, answer the question, and move on.
