Do You Take This Immigrant?

A recent New York Times article nicely described what happens at a “Stokes interview. ” A must-read for those wanting to learn more about what goes into thinking up these strange and often-time intrusive questions.

Stokes interview is also known as “marriage fraud interview,” and may take place in a marriage based green card application process when the husband and wife are questioned separately, and their answers are compared by an immigration officer to determine whether the marriage was entered into in good faith. A stokes interview usually takes place if the first interview (when the husband and wife were interviewed together) raised some questions about the marriage.
