Fiancée’s criminal background
The consulates rarely ask about Criminal backgrounds. If you’re being asked about it make sure that your petitioner tells you every information that you need, just in case.
It is better to know the background of your fiancée ahead of time before your interview. Not most couples get an interview if the embassy finds a serious case about the petitioner.
Some consulate asks about one’s hobby’s, likes and dislikes. It will be determined by them that you know everything about the person you’re going to marry.

Consulate officer rarely asks this question. But you must know how to answer this just in case.
- Name of the Middle School he went?

- What Degree did he attain?
Commonly asked to know if your petitioner would be able to support you and your future family together.
- What is the petitioner’s occupation?
- When was the finality of the divorce?
- How many marriages has he been?
If your fiancée has gone through a divorce the consulate will ask of how many times he has been in to and when did it become finalized.
To convince the consulate that you both have a genuine relationship you must remember every single detail from the start of your relationship until the present.
- How long have you known each other?
- How many times has he visited?
- When did your Fiancee propose?
- How long had he stayed in the country?
- Where did you meet your Fiancee?
- What do you love about your Fiancee?

Getting approved for the interview would be easy if you know all the information that you need to know about your petitioner or fiancée. Not all Interviewers are nice, welcoming and understanding of your accent. Make sure that when you answer them, you must look in their eyes with confidence and have all of your documents ready
Bringing your Petitioner on the day of your interview really does help. This will prevent further asking more questions. The presence of your petitioner itself is proof of your genuine relationship.
