Marrying a Morrocan Woman

18 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Masha'Allah it seems that almost all of the fiance visa cases I see on VJ are of American women marrying Moroccan men. I read somewhere that it is tougher on them because there are many cases of fraud with the men marrying older, non-muslim, American women. Does anybody know if the process is easier for an Muslim American man marrying a Moroccan woman?

It's pretty much the same overall. If you plan to marry in Morocco, make sure you have a certified translation of your conversion paper from your masjid to present to the judge who has to grant you permission to marry. Even if you were born Muslim, they expect western Muslims to have one, especially when marrying a Muslim woman.

There are a few American men who've been through the process in Morocco. Insha'allah, they will offer more help to you.

Thank you, but I wasn't talking about marrying in Morocco. I'm referring to the k1 visa and peoples experience with applying for a woman. I don't think i've seen a case on here of an American man appyling for a Moroccan woman beneficiary...Masha'Allah

There was at least one American Muslim man on here a little while back who petitioned for a Moroccan woman and everything seemed to go well for them. I don't remember them having any problems.

Ok, because I heard that Casa is a tough consulate but I saw on another post that they are easier on the women as far as the interview goes. I hope that is our case insha'allah

I wouldn't underestimate the consulate or let your guard down just because she's a woman. I'd put nothing past Casablanca. The only times I think they are easier on people are when it's a Moroccan American marrying a Moroccan. Other than that, it's just best to prepare yourself for their normal level of scrutiny.

I agree with Squeaky , the Casablance consulate does have a level of scrutiny that anyone going through there must realize and present their case the best way they can. It would not be wise to think anyone has it easy , I think in any consulate and just do your best to prove your love ! :)

I've read plenty of stories about Moroccan women who left their American husbands after getting their papers. I can't think of anyone sharing their immigration experience, although I have to think that if I've heard about female scammers, Casablanca has, too. It might be a bit easier, especially if you're lacking other red flags, but as others have said I would hope for the best but prepare for the worst.

Good luck!
