Has anyone adjusted from a work visa like H1B or E1/E2 and attended the marriage green card interview?

Hello,

 

For anyone who was on a work visa before, got married and adjusted status here, when you attended the GC interview, did they ask you or your spouse any questions pertaining to your work you did while on the work visa? Or they are more going to focus on the relationship since this is not an employment based GC application?  Thank you!

What are you asking exactly, or why? 

 

They may ask either one of you where you worked, and in what position, and what you did. They may ask when you worked there and when you stopped, if you did. 

 

Are you concerned about the work you did being in violation of something, or are you concerned that your spouse doesn't know what you did? 

 

They can ask any question that a spouse would be able to answer about the work that their spouse does.

No not worried about that. I've been on a visa. Were you on H1b too?

 

I am asking this question because I would like to know how indepth this want us to know about each other's job. For example if I worked for an employer 5 years ago (when we weren't even in each other's lives will they expect us to know all the details of that job too or just where we worked After we started dating?) and now after EAD I work for a different employer, Will they expect us to know chronologically all of the employers we worked for in the past five years and vice versa exact start date and stop dates and exact responsibilities? I generally know my partner is an engineer but I don't know Day to day responsibilities so if we need to prep each other on that I would like to know.
