TOTALLY NEW & UNFAMILIAR

Recommended Posts

HEY EVERYONE, MY NAME IS ASHLEY & I'M FROM MICHIGAN.

​MY FIANCEE AND I WILL BE MARRIED IN JANUARY, IF EVERYTHING GOES AS PLANNED IN MOROCCO. (AS FAR AS PAPERWORK AND THINGS OF THAT NATURE GO)

​I WILL BE THERE, IN MOROCCO FOR 3 MONTHS (BEGINNING DEC 30) AND WHEN I RETURN (MARRIED) I WILL BEGIN THE VISA PROCESS.

​MY QUESTION IS . . .

​ARE THE OTHER PEOPLE OUT THERE WHO ARE IN THE SAME SITUATION AS ME AND MOHAMMED?

​OR PEOPLE WHO HAVE ALREADY BEEN THERE, DONE THAT - THAT CAN HELP US WITH ADVICE?

​(PEOPLE MARRIED TO MOROCCANS OR MOROCCANS MARRIED TO AMERICANS)

​PLEASE AND THANK YOU IN ADVANCE.

​ASHLEY

Welcome to the forum, Ashley!

There are many of us (Moroccan + American couples) here, and many others on this site who are very knowledgeable about many aspects of the spousal immigration process.

Feel free to ask any questions you have as they come up throughout the process. If you have any burning questions in your mind right now, fire away!

Have you obtained all of the documents you will need in order to file for a marriage license in Morocco? You'll want to make sure you get a few things together and take them with you to Morocco.

Thanks so much for the welcome.

​I have my birth certificate (I don't need my social security card, do I?)

I will also have my 2 most recent check stubs, a letter with my intent to marry in Morocco, aaaaand a police report.

​Please let me know if I need something else. :)

​For my police report - I should just be able to go to my local police department and pay for one & leave with it that day - right???

Thanks again.

You are correct, your local PD should be able to give it to you in just a few minutes. You won't need your social security card. Everything else, you'll obtain in Morocco (that's the fun/hard part). ;)

Hello,

My husband and I are also one of those couples that just completed the immigration process in September when he arrived in the US. We were married in Morocco in May 2015 after I had lived there for nearly a year. I returned to the US and filed for his visa in 11/2015 and he was here by 9/22/2016. Anything I can help you with, please let me know. Good luck and be patient.

my name is Mohamed and i am from Casablanca and my wife is from michigan too. very cool. marriage process will take about two weeks. i hope you have brought all the required documents from the states. i am still at the NVC stage; luckily the CR1 visa is a lot faster than before, you can probably be with your husband within a year or less if you count the 3 months you gonna be staying with him in Morocco. Good luck
