Comments : The interview was tougher than I thought and I highly recommend for the petitioner to attend if possible. They ask all kind of questions and be prepared to present sufficient documentation (specially financial). It is important to be prepared and practice with ur SO before the interview. Some of the questions that were asked were:
-Where is he going to live?
-What is he going to do in the USA?
-When did we decided to get married?
-How did we inform our families?
-How did we meet?
-How do we communicate and how often?
-Does he has family in the USA?and if so who?
-Does he have family in Cuba?
-What are our plans for the wedding?
-Where do I work?
-Do I go to school?
-Have we been married before?Kids?
-Where we single before meeting each other?
-She asked me to explain what is the K1 visa.
-Asked him if he was part of any Communist organization.
-Why do we want to get married?
And others that I dont recall...
Also, if the US citizen attends the interview with the US passport u can enter with no problems...After entering the receptionist provides u with a form that the US citizen completes so that you can have the interview as soon as possible...this is great as we did not have to wait for a long time...

*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
