Do consulars really know the answers to the questions they ask?

Hey,

So my Fiancee had her interview in Ethiopia for a K1 and passed. She said that the consular asked her questions about my kids (names), my ex (name and ethnicity), my original date of marriage, divorce, birthplace.......Things like that. She was confident the whole time and answered everything perfectly. Her interview barely lasted 5 minutes. She noticed that other people before her that were getting their interviews were very nervous and some were visibly shaking. She said their interviews lasted a lot longer (20+ minutes) and some were denied. My question is, do consular's mainly look at body language and attitudes even without knowing the answers to the questions they ask? I know he could have dug through our documents and found the answers but it's just hard to believe that he memorized all of that before the interview. I'm just curious as to what others think about this.

of course they know the answers. They prep fr the interview to. Write their questions down that I am sure comes from the evidence and the situation of the couple. Going through Facebook emails. You would be amazed some of the deep investigative work they do for some cases that need a deeper look. They don;t just hap haphazardly just ask stuff and take what is answered.

And sure body language also plays into it. I know of many people who totally blew a interview and the CO mentioned it in the NOIR. Their nervousness and lack of knowledge because they were so dang scared.

They do know a lot, because they do read through everything beforehand- that is why many on here recommend front loading petitions.

But yes, the way you act to questions, especially difficult ones, will also play a role. COs are trained to look at the total package.

Hmm. This is scary. I had one of my homeboys denied cos he filed a fiancé visa after getting married. They put their pics on Facebook and never thought the consular section would dig into Facebook. Needless to say, she was shown his and her Facebook account at her interview and told to go ask her husband to file for a spousal visa (green card). Good thing is she just got here now and they just had their wedding reception three weeks ago.

Seriously???

i don't have a facebook

and no where do i post the color of my bedroom carpet, books i have read and color of my house

these are things they asked him

anyway, he did know the answers as i showed photos of my house to his family while in morocco and told him they were putting in hardwood floors while i wa there

but the embassy had no way of knowing these things

these are questions left over from when they intreviewed after the person came to the US and then was interviewed

they asked him what i had for breakfast that morning / good thing i was in Morocco as other wise i would still be sleeping in the US

I guess that makes sense for them to check facebook in order to see if the relationship is real. It sucks for your friend but at least he finally got her here.
