You will be called in for a personal interview, which will be held at a uSCIS office near you. USCIS will send you and your accompanying relatives an appointment notice, usually about two weeks in advance of the interview. If you have an attorney, he or she may come with you to the interview. (Even if you don’t have an attorney, you could consult with or hire one at this point.)
Be prepared to explain at your interview why you still fear returning to the country from which you fled. If you no longer fear returning there, you do not qualify for your asylee or refugee status, and therefore do not qualify for the green card. If any dramatic changes have occurred to supposedly improve conditions in your country—such as a regime change or peace treaty—you’ll have some extra explaining to do. If possible, supply supporting documents under such circumstances. If you don’t already have an attorney, this would be a good time to hire one.
The checklist below will help you prepare for your interview. Prepare all these items for yourself and your family members.
