You will want to go over to the Morocco Portal, because there are lots of cases of CR1s that were denied. Look at how the petitioners handled it.

On average, it takes about 6 months for the petition to be received back at USCIS, and another 4-5 months before it is reviewed. Your wife will receive notification of both, and will be given the opportunity to respond when the Notice of Intent to Revoke is received. It's very important that she responds, and in a timely manner. The best thing she can do now is to plan a trip to Morocco to strengthen your case with more face to face time. Until you know the consulate's reason for denial, there's not much else I'd suggest you do other than wait. You're looking at a year before your second interview, if the petition is reaffirmed.

My husband and I went through a similar situation. We had our case returned to USCIS last year. We received a NOIR. I fought with everything that I had. I got my senator involved. I had my husband write everything down that happened the day of his refusal at the consulate. I sent in three large packets of evidence with a strong rebuttal letter from me and my husband. I got all of our friends/family write affidavits of support-got these notarized. You need to find out specifics and get your senator involved. Never give up. We didn't and we got his visa approved yesterday. I will pray for you two.

thank you but what is a senator?

The senator is the politician that represents your spouses state that they live in. Here's a link to find your spouses senator:

I hope that this is helpful
