Hi Team,

My wife is going to have an Interview next month in Islamabad. I have created aroubd 50 questions for her to prepare with info taken from DS-230 like her name/ her parents info plus her educations etc plus all of that info regarding myself like where i work and all. I won't go into detail its all basic stuff that people have writted in this form. I have a few concerns that i would like to address and get your advice.

I have submitted all documents to NVC but did not submit wedding photos. I submitted about 5 wedding photos when i filled I-130 form (even though they never asked) but i didn't sent any pics to NVC because they never asked. Would it affect our case? I have created 100 pics album for my wife to take to interview that has our shaadi/valima pics plus some family gathering photos that we took after wedding.

Also we did not go for Honeymoon cuz i was there for short time (2 weeks) and right after my wedding it was my cousin's wedding

We don't have any reconrd of emails and facebook chats cuz where she lives they dont have internet connection all time plus they are (her family) very simple people they aren't really modernized or upto the technology. All i have is our phone records and the money transfer receipt as proof that we are still married and in an on going relationship. Is that good enough Phone record + Money transfer receipt (around 3 receipts)

Lastly, I have a joiint sponsor my sister. Do they ask questions regarding joint sponsor or no. I have seen that they sometimes require an I-864A completed by joint sponsor's spouse as well if they file taxes jointly (which i didn't submit cuz they never asked) but i have sent my wife a copy completed by joint sponsor's spouse just in case if they ask she will have it. Although they file taxes jointly, we are not using her husband income cuzz my sister makes enough alone to satify the requirement. Please let me know if you are aware of this issue.

Lastly, from all of your experiences, what are some of the most frequently asked questions that the Consular officier asks almost all married candidates during interview.

Thanks
