  2. It sounds like your lawyer did a good job getting you a second interview. S/he is the most familiar with your case and can advise you on what to expect at the interview. Questions normally focus on the validity of the marriage and the relationship.

  3. Your lawyer did a great job ... stick with him/her and ask him/her these questions ... not strangers on a blog.
