I am applying for CR-1 Visa for my wife. We were married in September 2007 in Casablanca. I just sent in the DS-230 to the NVC and they sent back letter stating that the marriage certificate is not a valid original. All other documents are ok.

It is the certificate that I was given from the Adoul (judge) that performed our marriage. I had him make two originals one for me and one for my wife. We use it to travel in Morocco because it is required for stays in certain hotels. It is valid in Morocco.

The person I spoke at NVC said its been reviewed twice and they still said it is not valid. I told him the story and asked what do I do to send valid certificate and he could not answer me. I asked to speake t a supervisor and he put me on hold and came back to me with same answer. Its not valid but they dont have answer as to what I should do and I can't talk to person would reviewed document.

As anyone experineced this problem. Any help appreciated

Thank you

Ernie

Hello sir, I was married in El Jadida, and i am pretty sure there was the paper from the adoul , then we had to take that to the court, they had to make another paper, with a stamp on the back of it, or maybe i am confused, maybe the one with the stamp is from the adoul

I have another that is on a long green sheet of paper, with stamps ,

I will send this message to you to get you to understand

i will look into my papers in a little while to see if what i am writing is correct

good luck to you

Kathleen

Hopefully this will help you:

Morocco Reciprocity Schedule - Marriage Certificates and Divorce Certificates link

Available.

Moroccan Moslems may obtain a copy of their marriage certificate by applying to the Cadi Court (Koranic Court) that presided over their marriage. Divorce certificates are obtained from the court rendering the decree. Mail applications for both marriage and divorce certificates are best handled through an attorney or a third party in the country.

Moroccan Jews married or divorced prior to September 30, 1965 should apply for marriage or divorce certificates to the Rabbinical Court that presided over the marriage or rendered the divorce decree. Moroccan Jews married after September 30,1965 should apply to the Bureau d'Etat Civil having authority over their place of marriage. Moroccan Jews divorced after September 30, 1965 should apply to the Tribunal de lere Instance that rendered the divorce decree.

Non-Moroccans who were married in the former French Protectorate Zone during the period from 1912 to 1956 may obtain a marriage certificate from the Bureau d'Etat Civil having jurisdiction over the place where the marriage was celebrated.

Non-Moroccans who were married in the former Spanish Protectorate Zone during the period from 1912 to 1956 may obtain a marriage certificate by applying to the church where the marriage was celebrated.

Non-Moroccans married in the former Tangier International Zone during the period from 1912 to 1960 should write to their Consulate or Embassy for assistance. (There were no civil licensing procedures in the Spanish Zone prior to 1960.) Certificates of marriage for marriages celebrated after 1956 in the former French or Spanish Protectorate Zones, or celebrated after 1960 in the former Tangier International Zone, may be obtained from the Bureau d'Etat Civil having jurisdiction over the place where the marriage was celebrated and recorded. Mail application for marriage certificates is possible and should be accompanied by a self-addressed envelope and a postal money order sufficient to cover the cost of the certificate and the return postage. Divorce certificates for non-Moroccans may be obtained from the Tribunal de Premiere Instance rendering the decree.
