Adjustment of Status Interview/Green Card – Tip #1: Know how to spell your spouse’s name!

Immigration officers can and will ask you to spell your spouse’s name especially when that name is unusual, difficult to pronounce or spell, or just lengthy. I tell my clients that if they don’t know an answer don’t make up one, instead admit “I don’t know.” The spelling of your spouse’s name is NOT, however, one of those questions to which it’s okay to say “I don’t know.” Take time before the interview to learn your spouse’s first and four middle names, if he/she has that many, AND the spelling too!

While immigration forms may, in some instances, appear simple, there are innumerable details and regulations not included in the instructions that slow or assist your case in being approved. Some individuals believe that these nuances are best left in the hands of a legal professional – only you know what is best for you and your loved ones!  Attorney Prince has years of experience processing family-based petitions and is available to help you with your petition.  Call us at (678) 705-5409.
