A couple of questions from Morocco

Hello everyone. Things are going very well here in Morocco and there are a couple of questions my fiance and I are discussing and I wondered if I could get opinions from some of you. I know I have asked many questions and I do really appreciate any thoughts or information you could share with us.

1. What are your thoughts on whether or not to use an attorney for the visa process? I have worked as a legal secretary and am very comfortable with paperwork. But I also do not want to take a chance on doing this wrong. I realize there are no right or wrong answers here but would really appreciate your input.

2. Any tips on getting married in Morocco? I am returning in January to get married. I have read and read and read some more on this topic. I know many of you have done this and just wanted to get your thoughts and opinions and suggestions that might help us.

We are nearing the end of my five week visit. When I return in January I will stay for three months. I thank you all for any help you can give to us. Now if someone could just tell me how to get on that plane back to the US without my heart breaking....

If you plan to get marries in Morocco that is great we got married there and it was the best experience ever. You will need many things to get married there....

> 2. certificate and divorce decree absolute if you have been married before.

> 3. A copy of your full Birth Certificate (stating both your parents' names).

> 4. A copy of your fiancé(e)s full birth certificate

> 5. A certificate of no-objection issued by the American Consulate and certified by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs office

> 6. A letter addressed to the judge saying that you both wish to be married, with your personal details (including US address), and passport details, and your Moroccan fiancé(e)'s personal and identity card details. This letter must be written in Arabic.

> 7. A certificate of nationality issued by the US Consulate in Morocco

> 8. A police record issued by the local police in the US for US residents. Please apply at the police station closest to your home in the US.

> 9. Whether your are a resident in the US or in Morocco, a record of no previous conviction for non-Moroccans issued by the Ministry of Justice, Rabat, (extrait de casier judiciaire)

>10. A document proving your occupation and income

> 11. A certified copy of a valid identity card

> 12. A copy of the passport and a copy of the page showing the date of entry into Morocco

> 13. A medical certificate for each fiancé(e)

> 14. A certificate of celibacy for the Moroccan fiancé(e)

> 15. A certificate of residency for the Moroccan fiancé(e)

I am glad you are staying for 3 months because it takes time to do everything they require. May have to pay some extra money if you want things done fast!

Best of luck and PM if I can answer anything else!

Also any documents you bring they will keep your originals and you won't get them back so be sure to get duplicate copies so you have everything to file your I130 peition when you are ready.
