Try to recall as much information about the interview as possible. What questions were asked and what you answered. If you can scan a copy of the 221g and upload it here, it will help for people trying to give you advice.

In the meantime, you can have your spouse call the consulate to try to get more information before the petition is sent back to the US.

Your visa has been denied. They are sending it back to USCIS in America for it to be reviewed. This process takes about one year. During that time, it is important for you and your wife to build a stronger case. USCIS will review the case, and if they disagree with the consulate's initial decision, they will reaffirm the case and send it back to Casablanca for a second interview. They may request further evidence from your wife while the case is being reviewed.

Now is a good time to think about what may have went wrong at your interview and why they may have denied you. Is there a large age difference between you and your wife? Has she only been to visit once? These are what we on VJ call "red flags" that work against a case being approved. There are ways to get past *most* of them. If I knew a little more about your personal situation, I could give you better advice on how to possibly get the petition reaffirmed and pass a second interview.

Sorry this happened to you. There are a lot of people on VJ that have been through this. If you post in the Middle East and North Africa regional forum, you can get great advice.

Before you start worrying about passing a second interview, you should prepare further evidence to send to USCIS for a rebuttal. What will happen is that the consulate will send your case back to USCIS for them to review it. It takes around 2 months for USCIS to receive the case. Then you have to wait for them to review it, which takes another 6-8 months. At that time, there's a good chance they will send your wife a letter telling her why you were denied, and ask for more evidence about your relationship.

If your wife is older than you, it helps to write a letter stating why this is not an issue in your relationship, also address the issue of future children in the relationship, and how you both feel about it.

Since she has only visited you once (this is a HUGE issue at Casablanca), I think the most important thing you both can do is to have your wife visit you again in Morocco and stay for as long as possible- take lots of photos with members of your family, go on a few trips, and save the train/bus tickets- then send the new photos and evidence with the rebuttal.

Then, once the petition is reaffirmed, you can begin to worry about a second interview. If the petition goes back to Morocco, you should get a second interview within a year to 18 months of your first.

There are a lot of interesting and helpful threads on Visa Journey about denials in Casablanca, why they happen, and how to deal with being denied. Here are a couple to start with: http://www.visajourney.com/forums/topic/291886-the-hoping-not-to-be-denied-at-casablanca-thread/

ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh waiting 1 year that so longe heheheheheheh but thank you for help

You need to have your spouse contact their Senator to place a congressional inquiry IMMEDIATELY to get details of the refusal. It is an approved visa, so it was a refusal work sheet you received, not a denial. You cannot receive a denial now but it can be considered for a possible revocation once USCIS reviews the case file and the Consulars notes which is why you need your Senator involced. If your spouse receives an intent to revoke, they will provide only 30 days to respond. Their current processing of returned petitions is 6 months upon receipt. You need to use diplomatic persuasion to find out the specific reason that the consular felt you were not elgible for a visa. You need to write a detailed account of that day and prepare a rebuttal. Yes, more visits will help your case, but you also need substansive written communication, receipts, certified affidavits of your relationship from family and friends, and time stamped photos. All this evidence must be detailed and in a verifiable format. Don't wait to start your campaigne.

Good Luck!

I dont know if its only me but...

You first posted here using the username 'souufane' if I was not mistaken then you changed it to 'crazyeclipse'..Now you have created this new account..same consulate,same problem. You are using a lot of usernames .VJers already gave you advices and I think you should just focus on doing what they told you instead of asking the same queestions over and over again...

I feel sorry for what happened but you need to move on!

Agreed. Soufiane seems to think this is a joke, or perhaps that people here on VJ can change the outcome of his case by telling him what he wants to hear. His behaviour on this board lends us some insight into the content of his character, and why he may have had difficulty at the consulate.
