Your relationship progressed rather quickly. How soon after initial meeting did you begin discussing marriage ? The 4 months spent together in Morocco before your marriage may help with this issue.

Have you been married before ?

How long had your wife been divorced when you met ? (A marriage very shortly after a divorce may be considered a red flag.)

Were your wife's previous husbands also from Morocco or another foreign country ? (Multiple marriages to foreigners who were also petitioned for green card may be considered a red flag.)

Other than that, the items you listed as evidence of marriage are good to show. Don't forget lots of photos, including with your family.

Were your wife's children able to accompany her to Morocco to meet you yet ? You may be asked questions about your relationship with the children.

OK these are good answers. Just keep documenting. Facebook chat is OK, phone calls are good, real cards and letters including the original envelopes with postmarks are good. You want to show that you are having regular and normal communication for a married couple. You don't have to show each and every conversation, just a sampling from intervals over time. If you can show phone records where you spent real money to talk to each other, that's good too.

The CR-1 process seems daunting, but it could be done in well under one year, if you don't hit any snags (missing paperwork, requests for further evidence, etc.) Believe me, one day the wait will seem like the blink of an eye.

I would suggest that your wife get on VJ, as well, as she is the one who will be doing most of the paperwork.

Best of luck to you !

Are you of the same religion?

To be fair your basic scenario is very common for this Consulate.

She will find plenty of people in similar situations.

not of the same religion, I didn't know they will consider our religions, uggghh the religion again :)

ok, I'll talk to my wife to read in the forum and ask all the questions she ll have :)

thanks

If your wife is Christian or Jewish, the difference in religion is really not likely to be as big of an issue as the other potential red flags I asked about (and which don't apply to your case.)

You and your wife should of course have discussed the issue of religion between you, and how it will or won't affect your lives, as well as the issue of how any children you may have together will be raised in regard to religion. And be prepared for the consulate to ask. But it does not seem to be considered a major red flag factor with this consulate unless there are other accompanying red flags as well.

The age gap is relatively small, that is true.

thanks,

i don t understand why they ll insist to talk about our religions? :)

yea,we have discussed the issue of religion between us, the religion dosn t a big place n our life.

Consulates are known to ask all sorts of things - we have heard of some very startling questions, even asking details about a couple's private sex life.

Sometimes the consulate will ask something "sensitive" or "personal" just to check out your reaction - to see if you seem uncomfortable with that particular issue. (For instance, if a person seems uncomfortable with the religious difference, it could be considered a red flag.) So just be ready to answer calmly and honestly if asked about it (as you have done here.)

Judging from how you have answered our questions clearly and calmly here in this thread, it seems you will be able to handle the interview just fine :thumbs:

Best wishes for you and your wife! I know the separation time is hard but one day it will all be worth it when ya'll can be together. After I married my husband in Egypt I spent 13 months away, then went back to Egypt again and came home without him. 4 months again without seeing him then he was able to come over. 17 months apart sucks! We are about to be having our 6th yr anniversary in July and we spend so much time together. I think I've only been away from him for 3 days in the past 4yrs!
