Is the CR1 interview different from the K1 interview?

CR1 is more detailed that they want more proofs of mixed bills and ownership of property. This visa takes longer to process since the AOS part is done prior to the issuance and the arrival in the USA.

K3 is more detailed as well than the the K1 but it does not take as long to process. You can travel but cannot work once you arrive in the USA and will have to file the proper paperwork for work authorization.

K1 is the easier of the three visas. You only have to show that you have a legitimate relationship and that it is ongoing and you have the intent of marriage in the USA once the visa is approved and you must marry within the 90 day timeframe of arrival in the USA. Persons coming on K1 have to AOS once they are married stateside.

Hope this answered your question.

As far as the CR1 interview go to it prepared with bills that are shown in both names, pictures, cards, and anything else that shows you are a couple and have mingled you assets. Homeowners insurance, medical insurance, utility bills, etc. are just a few examples.

They're the same, but different. I've heard that the K1 visas are looked at more stringently because they're the quickest way for a foreign national to get into the U.S. and therefore more "suspicious". In either case, you still have to give proof of an ongoing relationship in the form of phone bills, emails, letters, pictures, etc...

Don't worry about having the beneficiary's name on all your assets. It would be absurd to have medical insurance for someone not even in the U.S.
