As Salaamu Alaykum,

Happy New Year to everyone I pray we all are reunited with our loved ones in this new year....

I have a question I hope someone will be able to answer. I will be going to Morocco to legally marry there. I will be staying for about 3 months. I am wondering if it is ok to prepare all of our papers for CR-1 and then send them back to the states to have someone send them in for me???? Or do I have to wait until I return to the states????? Also I was recently laid off my hubby has 2 siblings here in the states both have received their 10 year green cards. Can they and their spouses be listed as sponsers????

What happened to your K1, is it dead. Any USC or LPR can be a co-sponsor, as long as they meet the income requirement.

After his interview our petition was sent back for furthere reveiw. When it was received here in the states it was closed because the dates expired.

Okay, the CR1 package can be sent from anywhere here on earth as long as it arrives at the correct USCIS address. Good luck going forward. :thumbs:

You do not have to wait until you return to file the petition. Sponsorship issues are dealt with after the petition is approved months from now. Yes, permanent residents can act as joint sponsors but I would avoid using the foreigner's family members if possible. Using those family members in the USA to sponsor adds to the suspicion of a fraudulent relationship and you're already dealing with one of the more difficult Consulates. A job of your own, or using your own family as sponsors if needed would be a better choice.

I hope to be working again by that time... Using my family is a no go :( It's been 6 years since I converted to Islam and they still have not come to grips with that.... And when they found out I was marrying someone I met online they thought I had lost my mind..... Would it be posible to use his siblings spouses only?????

Yes, if one of them qualifies. If they have the same family name, it would hardly make a difference though.

Ok... Thanks so much for the info

It occurs to me that both names will be on any tax returns provided as supporting documentation for affidavit(s) of support.

I should add that it is quite common for the applicant to be asked about the relationship to the sponsor. You should count on that happening and be prepared with a truthful answer.

As pushbrk mentioned the above +1. The CO could see this as a red flag.

Using your future inlaws will be a red flag with Casablanca. There is so much fraud coming out of Morocco that any little thing that's a red flag will give them a reason to send it back. You need to be prepared to be able to support your husband, so I would get back to the states and find a job as soon as possible. I wish you the best of luck.

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but has your fiance checked out the requirements to legally marry in his area of Morocco? I don't know if this is a regional thing or if this is the same all over Morocco, but my fiance has been told that I will need to provide a certificate of wages and a certificate of employment in order to legally marry there.
