Asked about 2 years ago - Livingston, NJ

im a u.s. citizen, i've petitioned my husband for an i-485, we had an interview and later it was denied for failing to prove legal entry into the u.s. our lawyer appealed the case and now, one year later we've received a notice for a second interview. what are they going to ask us this time? first time the officer didnt ask any questions about our marriage, she only focused on how he got here. what should we expect next time?
