Comments : US Embassy in Madrid (K1 Interview):

I was able to join my fiancé into the embassy to wait with him during this process. The administrative lady asked for the following documents:
1. Appointment booking
2. Proof of fee payment
3. His passport (one that he used on the forms - his old one - and his new passport)
*My fiancé's passport was going to expire within the next 6 months so he renewed it and brought both to the interview. The woman updated his forms with the new information.
4. Medical packet
5. My (petitioner) W2 and tax documents

Then we waited a little more until my fiancé was called to do the interview. Here are the questions he was asked:
1. How did you and your fiancé meet? and when?
2. What was your fiancé doing while she was in Spain?
*that is when my fiancé mentioned that I was there with him and he motioned for me to come over!
3. (to me): Where are you from in the US?
4. Have you ever been to the US before?
5. Did you live together in Spain?

And that was it! It was super easy and the man was very kind and welcoming. He said that he was approved and his passport with visa will arrive in the mail within 2 weeks :)

*Notice about estimates: The estimates are based off averages of other members recent experiences
(documented in their timelines) for the same benefit/petition/application at the same filing location.
Individual results may vary as every case is not always 'average'. Past performance does not necessarily
predict future results. The 'as early as date' may change over time based on current reported processing
times from members. There have historically been cases where a benefit/petition/application processing
briefly slows down or stops and this can not be predicted. Use these dates as reference only and do not
rely on them for planning. As always you should check the USCIS processing times to see if your application
is past due.

** Not all cases are transfered
