There's really no way to know. The only thing you can do is bring all the additional evidence that the USCIS and NVC don't already have and hope that the consular officer will look at it. People say some COs look at stuff brought to the interview and some don't.

everything that was submitted at USCIS will makes it way to NVC and then to the embassy, if you have new ones I would submit those at the NVC stage.

They said they didn't submit any of that stuff at the NVC stage so I assume that means they've already submitted everything to the NVC and waiting for case complete

While it’s not mandatory ti add relationship evidence during NVC stage, people add it so the CO will be preloaded with your evidences. That doesn’t mean not sending that will have a negative impact. Bring any related evidences since the i130 submission during the interview.

Casablanca. Morocco

Well that is possibly the most important one to get it in. Often there it seems as if the decision is made long before the interview takes place, but all you can do now is take it in and be well prepared.

No one can predict if the CO will consider evidence brought to the interview. Sometimes they do, sometimes they don't but that is why it is important to front load and side load as much as you can. Your husband should bring the additional evidence to the interview, and hope the CO considers it. The bad thing about lawyers is that most of them do not know how specific and scrutinizing the Casablanca consulate is.

Yes, the embassy involved is critical here. For instance, Manila doesn't need front loading as you don't even know what CO will handle your case until you are in line at their window.

 

For Morocco, they tend to set a very strong opinion before the interview.

Well they have pictures and boarding passes from i130.how they can make make a decision before you answer to there questions? So at this point why go to interview then??

1) Formaility

2) They don't technically make a decision before the interview. But they can have a strong opinion. You want to go into the interview with a good impression, not starting from behind.

 

As a side note, any evidence submitted with the I-130 must be considered by the CO. Any evidence provided afterwards they will generally do so as well, but are not required to do.

In the event the visa is refused and I-130 sent back, you can add more evidence then.

 

Best thing right now is to throw in the kitchen sink with evidence for the interview.

Good luck.
