I have every reason to believe that it's a completely legitimate marriage. We were going for my client's naturalization interview. My client is from India and his wife is from the United States. They have been married for three years, so they can apply for naturalization under the 3-year rule. Generally, it takes five years for someone with a green card to be able to apply for naturalization, but if you're married to a U.S. citizen, you can apply after three years. And that's what we had done. We submitted a ton of evidence of the marriage. The couple traveled together, lived together, and combined all their assets. They have a ton of evidence that the marriage is legitimate. However, something happened at the interview that really surprised me. The officer said that she wanted original mail that came to the house. She was not happy with computer-generated bank statements or documents from the internet. I'm not talking about birth certificates and marriage certificates, as those things always require the originals. But at this N400 interview, the officer was expecting us to bring not only copies, but also the originals of junk mail envelopes and similar materials. This had never happened to me in my many years of practice. Then, I found out from a former client who filed on their own that this happened to them as well at the St. Louis immigration office....
