No, for sure there were other requests for information. I'll have to check but mostly it was providing information to show that I had paid our taxes, that our marriage was valid, and that I wasn't a criminal. I have photocopies of everything so I can get more detail but that was basically it. The process actually took longer because I wasn't so quick at responding sometimes. I had to request documents and wait for them before sending them on.
Believe me, the 5 minute conversation was no difficult German test, but she did say it was to access my language. I was maybe A2 level at the time but I would say my speaking level was below that. She just asked if I was in any local clubs. I was honest and said no, we hadn't lived here that long and that we had only gotten to know our neighbors a bit who also had kids.
Also interesting, we moved during the process. We first lived in ZH and now AG but my wife's heimat is in SZ. The person I spoke to was from our local Gemeinde and not my wife's heimat, which becomes my heimat. A bit strange. I would have thought the heimat Gemeinde would be the one doing the interview but that wasn't the case.
