Please do no tmove this topic to Morocco I need help. Received our interview for CR-1. Lawyer forwarded list from NVC. It states fee As $ which means fees are Paid, The $88 and $404. Lawyer forwarded long list of evidence to me showing I need to pay $404 at embassy day of interview. We are going round and tound about that as seems n one else pays another fee at the interview in Casa. He says it is embassy processing fees and it is required. Anyone know about this. I posted this quesiton in Morocco under CR-1 and didn't get any answers. Is there a hugh fee for the interview? Seems i am the only one asked to pay this.

What kind of evidence did the lawyer send you that shows you will have to pay more fees at the interview? If NVC says all fees are paid I would think that is it and you just go for the interview... you may have a courier fee for the visa to be sent but other than that if you;re filing cr1 then the fees are paid before the interview.

He just sent list of evidence required.

All the things I provided to USCIS and NVC

Last night we went round and round in emails and he says I need to pay this.

I can not find any other intervieew in Morocco that has to pay again. Just the $131 for K-1 but I am CR-1

Do you have a receipt where you paid NVC? A bank statement saying you paid each of the fees? There is no reason you would have to pay the fees twice once its paid and accepted and posted as paid... The ONLY fee to be paid at interview would be if you are K1 and you;re not so we can rule that out. The only other thing you may need to pay is the courier fee which would send your visa to the applicant once its done. That isnt the amount of the visa fee so your attorney is really mistaken. Your Case would not be sent to embassy or have interview scheduled until your fees are properly paid. They would hold it until you paid the fees.

You won't have to pay another fee... i can imagine how confusing it is for you!!!

I printed out my reciept complete with the bar code. Trust me I leep everything after I had to provid the 25 pound box of evidence for the RFE. Even had to send death certificate for my dad who has been gone 22 years now. Not sure how that shows I have a relationship.

so, anyway, at this point, I am frustrated.

the fees for cr1 are all paid at NVC level there are no more visa fees for cr1 thats the issue shes fine with her fees and all paid but the attorney is insisting on more fees to be paid....

Does the attorney want you to pay him the fees so he can forward to embassy?

No, he says I pay them the day of interview at the embassy.

and the embassy sent him a list of needed items. He sent me a checklist. I have prepared all things again and copies.

I just asked because no one else is paying anything at the embassy

Adil did pay when he originally went for K-1 but I knew about that.

The $404 was money i want to use before Ramadan starts to see a little more of Morocco. And i am afraid not to use the cash for car rental if embassy really requires it.

I agree. There was a consulate fee for the K1, but not the CR1. You already paid all fees at the NVC. Many immigration lawyers in the US are great at keeping people in the US from being deported, but clueless when it comes to getting people here. It's possible your lawyer has more experience keeping people in the US, and is just confused about the fees. Also, if s/he is telling you it's an "embassy" fee, tell him he's an idiot b/c you're going to the consulate in Casablanca. The US Embassy is Rabat, and not where your husband will go for his interview!

ok sounds like we are all in agreement she has already paid all the fees necessary for the visa fees!!!

She may have a small fee for courier service but that wont be much if anything... and there may be a shuttle fee to take them to the consulate but other than those few tiny fees shes paid!!!

Go and enjoy this time with your hubby!!! Go sightseeing in Morocco and spend that money and get your hubby here!!!! Good luck...

And btw tell your attorney to stop insisting you have more visa fees to pay!!!!! invoice him for his time for issuing you stupid things after all each time he emails you its costing you... you did your homework now give him an invoice for your time ;)
