You need lots of proof of a valid marriage like joint bank accounts, shared utility bills, income documents, shared health insurance, last 3 years of tax returns (very helpful to have yours from 2015 filed this year!) and passports. Bring it all, but they may not ask for it. Mostly casual questions. Somewhat depends on if you are from a high fraud country.

I can't remember our green card interview. abut it was really basic. My husband, three kids and I did them all on the same day. The longest part of the whole thing was the wait to get to the clerk. We were Canadians -- my husband came in on an L1 and the kids and I were L2. We waited longer than we needed to, to apply for the green card because my husband was travelling in and out of the country. Once we applied it didn't take long and I honestly don't remember the interview. I barely remember the citizenship interview and know it was just so simple and basic. No need to be nervous. By the time they get you to the interviews you are basically approved. They have done the dirty work and it is almost a rubber stamp.

Your in -- your good....don't worry.

I married a non-US Citizen and we needed to apply for her greencard.

Basically, show as many joint account documents (bank, tax, credit card, health insurance, etc) as you can. Also show photos.

They basically had my wife's greencard application open and asked random questions from there, such as:

1/ what's your home phone number
2/ what company does your husband work for?
3/ what was your wedding day?
4/ what was your previous address?

These are facts that the greencard applicant should know, since they are in the application!
My wife was nervous and forgot her home phone number at the interview. The examiner asked her a few other questions and she passed.

Be sure to come prepared, that seems to impress the USCIS. We came prepared better than most attorney's do (my cousin is an immigration attorney, so we were coached properly) and our interview lasted 15 minutes. The examiner was satisfied, and stamped my wife's passport and congratulated her.

Be calm and confident and you should do well. The USCIS can "smell" a fraud case and if they do, that's when the really intrusive questions will start.

Her greencard came 8 months later.

During our interview, the agent mentioned that I was born in Redwing, MN. I stated yes. He then said "I'm wearing Redwing socks"! I really didn't know what to say. He then cut me loose and asked to see the Mrs, who was actually applying for the green card. The agent asked her all about her family, and basically nothing about me. Took 20 minutes and we were out the door with her temp green card. We did have an arm load of documentation, pictures, even an affidavit from the lady friend that married us...but they didn't ask to see any of it!

We also had a bunch of joint documents (utility bills, bank, credit cards, etc) and photos ready, but the USCIS didn't even bother to see them. He just asked questions from the greencard application, and that was it.
