    Question AOS for Parent- interview questions?

    My mother has received a notice to appear for an interview (I-485). Couple of questions-
    Is this a formality or are they going to be serious? Any ideas what they may want to interview her about?
    I was planning to go with her as a translator. However another thread in the forum noted that in his case the interview was aborted because petitioner cannot be translator (I am the petitioner). Anyone else have such an experience?

    Thanks for your time.

    Of course the interview is a serious matter! She should be prepared to answer any and all of the questions truthfully and completely.

    Default Interview

    Thank you for your response.

    Of course, I know any interaction with the USCIS is serious. And it goes without saying that one needs to be truthful and be prepared to answer their questions. The point of my query was to find out 1) What kind of questions have people encountered during the interview 2) Is it acceptable to have the petitioner as the translator.

    Thanks for your time.

    Post Interview Info

    An interpreter is REQUIRED. The interview letter states that an interpreter is allowed if the applicant is not fluent in english.

    I spoke to a friend whose parents were also called for the interview. It appears that in his case, the interviewing officer required that he (the sponsorer) be present during the interview. Since his wife had originally accompanied the parents to the interview, the officer asked her to call her husband (my friend) and asked him to come before proceeding with the interview. They had to wait for him to arrive.
    My friend said that it was more of a interview for him than his parents. They wanted to make sure he is legal and that his finances were ok and that he could support them and that the parents were also legal.

    All in all, he said it was a pleasant experience. This is in San Jose.
