Q: question about a marriage green card.
I have an asylum case in the immigration court( my hearing date is in 2023) and I'm going to marry a USC. I'm wondering will immigration investigate marriage in my case? If so, they will usually investigate before the interview or after? But since my case is already in the immigration court, I assume that the only person who can approve my marriage green card is the immigration judge. Therefore, I don't think the USCIS officer will investigate. I don't worry about the investigation, but wanna know if I should be prepared to USCIS officers may visit our home. Thank you!
A: USCIS, not the immigration court, will examine the bona fide merits of your marriage to ensure it's a real and not a fake marriage. There are many different types of evidence they request and expect.
If you plan to enter in a fraudulent marriage you may think it is not obvious but there are numerous signs that a marriage may not be genuine and authentic. Also, the USCIS agents are trained to flush out fabricated or fraudulent submissions for obvious reasons.
