What is the credible fear interview in America?

The credible fear interview is a filter to determine if there is a case of persecution and if it is verifiable. The entities that use this interview are typically national security entities, as well as some federal agencies.

What happens in the credible fear interview?

In this interview, the interviewer has to determine if there are any real cases or not. Candidates are usually presented with a suspect and then have to describe exactly what they are doing. This is because national security entities have to determine whether the candidate is lying or not, and then they decide what to do with the interviewee’s results.

How to prepare for the credible fear interview?

The credible fear interview is an interesting type of interview, which is why some people try to prepare for it before presenting their interview. If you are among the candidates, then it may be helpful to know a few tricks to get through the interview smoothly. For example, one way is to not show any emotion in the interview, be it fear or excitement. This can be useful so that the status is misunderstood and if there are any clues to the contrary.

Another way to prepare for this type of interview is by explaining your case to an experienced immigration lawyer to better understand how to do it, and this interview can be very complex for the interviewee, so a lawyer could offer you some ideas about what to say and how to deal with it.

What to expect after a credible scary interview?

If you pass the interview it does not mean that you have won the case, it means that you will have the opportunity to see an immigration judge to apply for political asylum.

If the interview is not approved because the political asylum officer determines that the immigrant does not have a credible fear of persecution or torture, the person can request a review of their case by an immigration judge.

The judge can reverse the decision and allow the immigrant to file an application for asylum and waiver of removal, but these decisions are usually not easy to change, so you need to understand the process and know how to prepare for the interview.

In summary, this type of interview is an interview that will probably not be seen in the future but there are still entities that use it to evaluate the aptitudes of the candidates and check if they are facing a case of real persecution or not.

Consider the following recommendations

– If you reside outside the border, it is better to do your Green Card application form through the American consulate closest to your home; otherwise you would get unnecessary delays (feel free to ask).

– If your Green Card application form is incomplete, the consulate will give you a deadline to complete it. After those three or four months, no modifications or new documentation will be accepted, so we suggest that you do not miss the deadline.

– Make sure you have completed each step of the Green Card application form correctly and in chronological order; if any information is missing, you will lose your rights in this matter. In addition, if you forget a document, you will not be able to access it later.

– Please note the deadline for each step of the Green Card application form. While these deadlines are flexible and can generally be extended, there is no guarantee of this either.

In summary, we must remember that this type of Green Card does not immediately grant voting rights or give automatic access to any type of social or economic benefit from the American government; however, it does guarantee the right to reside and work in the United States indefinitely.
