Hey guys, our interview was fairly simple. We went to the office early and there was a line out the door, we went through security and to the floor that the interview paper told us to go to and signed in with the receptionist. Then we waited for mayne 30 minutes. The IO called us in, she asked for our ID and my original birth certificate and marriage license and same for my spouse. She then asked us if we had any additional evidence to produce and add to the application. We gave her the entire package that we prepared from the interview letter. We did not have an attorney nor a translator so I was a little worried, but my husband was never worried. The questions were very simple, all about what we knew. When we got married, when we started dating, do we have kids, what is my parents name, what is his parents name. How did we meet, what kind of wedding did we have, what is our address. Really simple questions. She also went through the questions that were on the i-485 package "did you go to jail", "were you convicted any crimes" and you just answer the same way you answered on your application. Our interview was about 15 minutes long. She told us "I don't see a reason not to approve your case. I will look through your documents again to double check, but you should receive the green card in 30 days." 

A few hours later we got the notice that our card was in production.
