Here's what you should know about green card marriage interviews

As the old saying goes, love conquers all distance. Still, it is much easier to be near someone you love than far away. Now that you and your foreign-born spouse are married, you may be wondering how to get them a green card so that they can remain with you in the United States.

Your spouse can apply for a green card, but there is a major step to take before it is approved. The United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) is concerned that some couples get married solely for the purpose of obtaining one spouse a green card. In order for your spouse’s green card application to be approved, you must sit through an interview with USCIS to prove that your marriage is authentic.
