hello there! I am a US citizen and applied for my husbands green card via the I-13o offshore. since then, we are both going to live in Brazil for a while while we wait for his greencard and interview. I am curious if anybody knows if I, the US citizen and petitioner, needs to be at his interview with him? I may need to go back to the states prior to the date they will give him. I think he can go alone but just trying to gain proper information. thank you.

Beneficiary only...  though some spouses choose to go with , some consulates do not allow spouses in, some do.. but it is the beneficiary interview

In my opinion, it is always better to have the spouse come to the interview, though it's not required. You need to check with the Consulate doing the interview if they allows it.

I have no stats to back this up , but I would think that the vast majority of successful  visas are granted to spouses who interview alone as their spouse is unable to attend for all sorts of reasons such as $$ , lack of vacation, timing of interview etc

I don't have any stats to say otherwise, either, but certainly having the spouse there does not hurt. It's a choice. The petitioner spouse can be there if he/she chooses to.

Agreed but not that necessary unless certain things like high fraud country, and other red flags. I think the norm is that the US spouse won’t be there
