Hi. i will go through marriage now, but i have something that bothers me a lot.

a brother is in prison because of therorism (he was in contact with isis as i know from police and was trying to fly to syria)

 

can that affect out marriage and resolt in not accepting it? and can it affect the spouse visa?

Are you the US citizen or the Moroccan? 

 

Either way it could potentially complicate things if your names are similar or if a background search on you and his name comes up in connection.  If you are Moroccan (I'm guessing you are by your English) and you get the DS5535 you have to list all siblings. 

 

Lastly make sure you and your spouse spend a lot of time together BEFORE  you get married.  If you look on here or on the Facebook groups you will see a spouse Visa from Morocco is not as easy as other countries.  The best chance at a visa you have (with or without your brothers conviction) is to spend a lot of time together FIRST then marry later.

Salaam alaikum,

 

Because your family member is imprisoned on terrorism charges I would anticipate that your security checks will take longer than other individuals at the minimum.

 

United States State Department will have to assess if you are a threat to the national security of the United States before granting you any visa regardless of your marriage to a U.S. Citizen.

 

If the State Department and other intelligence agencies find with the help of Moroccan National Security that you are a high-level threat due to your relationship with this family member your visa will either politely get stuck in "Administrative Processing," for years or be outright rejected.

 

Best Wishes,

 

Ally & Omar

Most things in Morocco expire after 3 months so that would be my guess

but capacity of marriage is obtained in embassy

Its obtained from the consulate not the embassy. And my guess is 3 months. The Moroccan court has to accept it so it would likely go by their standards.

I am unsure what the expiration date is for this document.  In Morocco, I found some documents expire that do not expire ever in the US and the timelines vary.  I recommend you asking the local courts how long the document is good for.
