The affidavit of support shows that you are willing to take financial responsibility of your spouse for 10 years, once they become a lawful conditional and later permanent resident. They are supposed to ensure that the new permanent resident will not become a financial "burden" to the US (be on welfare, state help, etc). In it the petitioner(US citizen) basically shows they he/she has good employment history and earns 125% of the poverty line in the US, which would ensure ability to support the new spouse in case the spouse can't find a job for a while.

I am not sure what moneygram receipts you are talking about. But the way I read it, you have been sending your spouse abroad money to financially support them. Now be careful with this scenario because it can easily be misconstrued as something it is not. It doesn't look good to the USCIS if the foreign spouse has been sending you money (in a sense paying to marry...) It needs to be a bona fide marriage to get any immigration benefits.

Correct me if I am going off on a different subject or give more info to be able to get more accurate help! Thank you.

In general, keep in mind that the whole point of the K-1 visa is to establish that 1) the petitioner and beneficiary have met at least once in the last two years, 2) that there is evidence of a bona fide and legitimate relationship, and 3) that the petitioner (or cosponsor) can meet the minimum requirements of the affidavit of support.

If your fiancé(e) -- the U.S. citizen -- is sending you money, that can be included as evidence to support the application. But more important is airline boarding passes from visits, passport stamps, photographs of you together, a few emails, letters, etc. -- that sort of thing.

The affidavit of support itself is not "evidence" -- it is the necessary proof that the petitioner or cosponsor can support you well enough to prevent you from becoming a public charge if you are granted the K-1.

There are a lot of threads on this if you use the search button. I'm not sure of the specifics for Morocco, but a lot of people front-load the K-1 application with evidence so that the consulate has it already when the interview comes around.

Good luck.
