How risky is it to miss the interview as the USC?

I am really trying to be in country when it is time for my wifes interview, but depending on how much notice we get it may not be possible as the cost is just too great, somtimes tickets to Venezuela can easily be almost $2000 =(. Are we taking a big risk if I am not there in case they want to talk to me or something goes wrong? I think we have plenty of evidence, we have known each other 13 years, I flew there to see her 4 times last year and 1 time this year, we got married there with all her family and friends (and I sent pictures), and we received no RFEs or anything. Im very nervous of that last step where 1 person can just go "nope, sorry", though from what Ive read the Venezuelan embassy seems to be pleasant.

Hi!!! you shouldn't be so anxious....This is my point of view: getting a k1 visa (fiance) is way harder to get than getting a k3 (I guess that is the one you need to get a spousal, correct me if Im wrong please), you already are marry and if you guys have everything they ask you for, she is gonna be fine. When I went to my interview I was with my fiance and it was a great experience, mostly because I had him there with me supporting me (I was very anxious) but I don't think that mades a lot of difference having him or not. Th only thing I realize was that the same the day of my interview, there was a girl sit next to me alone, waitiing for her k1 visa approval, just like me. The only difference between my interview and hers, is that she got a lil bit more question than me, cause she was alone but she made it...she made an awesome job! My advice, make an effort and try to go, but if you cannot, get very well prepare about everything...she is gonna be ask about a lot of things about your life, family, work place...thing that she should have known about you already.

Either way I thinks she is gonna make a good job with or without you....venezuelan women we do everything is in our hands to pull things out!!!

My best wishes to all of you

Thanks, I appreciate your insight from your recent interview, that really helps. We are doing the CR1 actually. Im thinking that given that she has a public career in Venezuela she has a lot of reason to stay in Venezuela, so that should help be even more proof to the agent that everything is legit.

And you are correct, Venezuelan women are definitely strong willed and get stuff done =P. I have great confidence and faith in my wife in that regard.

Thanks again!
