Although I'm not sure how it works in your country, I think there are a few basic things to keep in mind at the time of the interview.

1. Do not be nervous.

2. Remain calm and collected.

3. Always answer to the point.

4. Do not volunteer any information.

5. Dress comfortably and smartly.

6. If you do not understand a question, make it a point to ask the consular officer to repeat it.

7. Be prepared with all sorts of evidentiary proof, right from logs of emails/calls/chats, pictures, money transfers, to everything. No evidence is too much evidence as far as this process is concerned.

8. Speak out with clarity. Do not mumble/stutter/stammer, as these are signs of low confidence/lack of confidence.

9. Be pleasant and have a smile on your face when the consular officer greets you.

I think this should be good enough. You'll do just fine. You could also go to your country's/consulate's review page and check the various questions people have been asked in there. That helped me a great deal, and I'm sure it would help you too. Good luck!

Consular Interview prep page and Loto's " How to bring a spouse to the US " should give you a good grip on the subject. Best of luck!!

Read some of the embassy reviews for jamaica to get an understanding of the interview what questions were asked and how others prepared as far as what they had ready. unfortunately only the beneficiary goes in and the petitioner has to remain outside.

Also you should update your timeline:-)
