Hi everybody!

First of all thanks for all the helpful people & advices we can find in this website.

I will present to all of you our case.

We are a couple of one year and half relationship: my girlfriend is from USA and I am Moroccan. We met in Spain where I am living now. As my girlfriend doesn’t want to live in Spain and we decided to make our life in USA, we are going to marry.

Now what we want to know is what the best is (surest + shortest) way for me to get the visa to move to USA, considering that:

1-I am illegal in Spain

2-My girlfriend is not resident in Spain

3-She has is working now in US (work contract from February to the end of March) but she is living with her parents

4-She is coming back to Spain in April

Can I apply for the Direct Consular Filling here in Spain?

Or is it better for us if she starts there the Fiancé Visa procedure?

Thanks my friends for any :help:

Best regards.

Don't cross post the same thread to multiple forums. It's very bad form. Post one thread and wait for replies. Be patient.

I bet you that US embassy and consulates in Spain will want to see some proof of legal residency for any Moroccan applying for a visa. Morcocco is a country that harbors terrorists and any Moroccan trying to circumvent the Casablanca embassy will be looked at under a microscope.

I suggest trying for a K-1 in a country where you have legal residency.

Sorry man, I posted it in multiple forums coz as it's the first time and I am really confused I didn't know where to do it...

Well if I'm circumveting the Casablanca Consulate it's for 2 main reasons:

1-if I go there I can not return to Spain

2-I guess from there it will take forever not like from Spain

So you suggest me to go to Morocco to ask for the K-1... :no: SORRY :no: :no: :no:

But thanx a lot for answering.

1. You aren't supposed to be in Spain in the first place. You're illegal. If any US consulate finds out you've been illegal in a country, especially Spain, where certain Moroccans bombed some trains, they will dissect your personal history to try to ascertain if you're a terrorist. Make a choice: risk getting caught on immigration charges in Spain and be forever banned from the US or return to Morocco.

2. Applying for a visa in a "faster" consulate is called "consulate shopping". US consulates frown upon this practice, and will look very closely at any applicant who appears so.

I suggest you read the K-1 guide and try for a K-1 in a country you have legal residency.

I agree. Doing anything illegal in this process is a big NO NO and will most likely delay your petition at best but more than likely cause it to be denied. I would think that you could only do DCF in your home country, maybe I am wrong, but it wouldn't make sense that people could just choose any country they want to file in because it might be faster.

I am very sorry if this hurts your feelings but you are illegally in a country that is not your own, which has had terrorism. Your country harbors terrorist and it is scrutinize by the U.S. and other countries that are tired of cowardly terrorist who kill men, women, kids, and who ever they can kill. How do you expect to get a visa into the U.S.? You either have to start doing things legally or think of living in another country with your fiancée. A very good idea is for your fiancée and you to see some immigration attorneys and see what they say.

Good luck,
