| SAN DIEGO |SAN FRANCISCO | MANILA,4/8/2011 -- Our factual sce-nario begins with the story of a tourist who enters the UnitedStates as a visitor for pleasure.At the port of entry, she wasonly givenan authorizedstay of threemonths.Upon her entry, shewasted notime andstarted tour-ing the coun-try, visitingher friends and relatives. Sheliked the country so much suchthat she decided not to go back to her home country. A fewyears later, she met someonewho was 15 years younger thanher. Despite their age, theyfell in love with each other andeventually got married.Since her spouse was a US
citizen, he led an immigrant
petition for her and she con-
currently led an application
for adjustment of status tohave her status adjusted to thatof a permanent resident. Inabout four months, they wereinterviewed by the US Citizen-ship and Immigration Service.During their initial interview,
the immigration of cer noticed
the age gap between them andsuspected that their marriage
was not a real one. The of cer
then referred them to another
of cer who conducted a fraud
interview.We usually hear a lot of sto-ries as to what happens duringa fraud interview. Some storiesgive an accu-rate accountof what tran-spires duringfraud inter-views butsome storiesare somewhatexaggerated.So what re-ally happensduring a fraud interview?When the spouses are referredto a fraud interview, they areusually separated from each
other. The of cer will lead the
other spouse to a separate roomwhile he waits for his turn to
be questioned by the of cer.
The questions propoundedare detailed and could be very
personal. Some of cers could
ask the spouses questions like:the circumstances on how theymet; details of their wedding;physical arrangement of their residence; their day to dayactivities; food that they hadthe night before the interview;things they bought as a couple;clothes that they wore the nightbefore the interview and giftsthat they give to each other.Fraud interviews usually takebetween two to four hoursdepending on the interviewing
It is important to note that theparties must respond as truth-fully as they can to the ques-tions asked. They should notgive answers thinking that it is
the answer the of cer would
like to hear. The parties usu-ally get into trouble if they dothat as their answers wouldnot match if the other spouseis responding truthfully to the
of cer’s questions. The objec-tive of the of cer in conduct-
ing these types of interviewsis to ascertain whether or notthe spouses have a shared lifetogether.Thus, the key to passing thesetypes of interviews is just to behonest and truthful about your relationship. If the marriage is
a bona de one, then you have
nothing to fear should the US-CIS conduct a fraud interviewin your case.
