The final step before your visa is granted will be an interview at the US embassy. The interview is just about you and your fiancé and your relationship. This is the most nervous but challenging step of the K1/Spousal visa, and this is the last chance for you to prove to the consular officer that you have an honest and genuine relationship. It is a good idea to be prepared and familiarize questions yourself with some questions you may encounter at the K1/Spousal visa interview. That is why I wrote down the sample questions for you. But please be aware that these are just sample questions and no guarantee that they may ask it to you. The purpose of the sample question list below is to help you to get an idea regarding the questions you may expect and get prepared for your coming interview.
Note: Please bear in mind that this is just based on my K1 visa journey experience: I am not giving any legal advice and I am not an immigration lawyer, I am just an ordinary person like you who wants to share my experience for you to get an idea what to expect. Some sample questions listed below are from my own experience, some are from the experience of people I know. Also, this is written from my perspective as a Filipino woman marrying a male U.S. citizen. If you are a man marrying a foreign woman or a same-sex couple some/most of this may apply to you.
Here are the sample K1/Spousal visa interview question for you, please don’t be confused to some almost same thing question in the list because sometimes the same thing is asked in a different way.

During your interview please stay calm and poise, do not show to the consular officer that you are nervous, be confident and don’t take too long to answer. Do not give the answer, MAYBE or I DON’T KNOW or I DON’T REMEMBER. Because the consular officer will find you unprepared to answer. And if you are not prepared and can’t answer correctly expect more and tougher questions. Remember not to stress before your interview for K1/spouse visa. If you are in a true relationship and have taken the time to get to know each other the interview is an easy pleasant experience. Follow a checklist, front load your petition; gather all your proof of relationship and supporting documents.
Stay strong and positive, enjoy the process and be patient and remember that with LDR there will be insecurities that arise for both people and that the way to work through them is set your pride and ego aside and communicate openly, honestly, and in a non-aggressive non-argumentative style. If you have no communication in a relationship then having no relationship is soon to follow and you will be having a hard time to answer all the possible question to you in your visa interview. If we can make it through a long-term LDR and pass through all the hurdles and struggles that go with it then the relationship is built to last. Meet each other in person as many times as you can because this is truly the only way to get to know someone both good and bad habits will present themselves if given enough time we are all human always remember that an hour conversation on a smartphone or computer video monitor is not enough to learn about a person, however, it is a great way to remain connected. And please be aware that you need to meet in person during the 2 year period before filing the I-129F petition for your foreign fiance.
