Had my interview last May on a K1 Visa. They'll get the Cenomar, NSO BC, Affidavit of Support, the pictures. Just prepare the list. You can check it here as well.

For the interview:

Name of petitioner

Birthday of petitioner

Work of petitioner

Date we met

Date we got together

What i felt first time i met her

Our story

My last consul showed pictures (the ones my fiancé now wife submitted) of us together and asked questions about it.

It really depends. Some gets asks a lot of questions. Some just a few.

Just relax and always answer from your heart. :)

i understand what you feel, tell to yourself that you can make it.just focus and concentrate for the question of CO.If your relationship is genuine you dont have to worry about because all the questions are about you and your petitioner.

Hello, I had my interview last October 6. The Filipina CO asked the following:

1. My name

2. Name of petitioner

3. Age of petitioner and my age

4. Petitioner's job

She is very nice and we talked in Tagalog and told me to show our pictures to American CO who will conduct an interview to me. For my final interview the CO asked me the following:

1. My name

2. Petitioner's name

3. Petitioner's job

4. Petitioner's age

5. My age

6. My job

7. How we met

8. How many times he visited me

He didn't asked for proof of bona fide relationship (chat logs, pictures, phone records etc). Probably because he saw I am carrying a big shopping bag with 5 folders inside.. lol. Anyways the questions are just about you, the petitioner and your relationship. So don't worry, just relax and focus on the CO's questions. Goodluck!!! :)

Yes, your husband is allowed to go with you during your interview. I saw a few US citizens at the Embassy when I went for mine.
