If you are getting married in March then K-1 is not an option.

 

The other option is spousal visa and if approved, the classification of IR/CR  will be based on the age of your marriage at the time of the interview

K-1 is not an option if you are getting married in March. The k-1 is a fiancé visa meant for fiancés of USC coming to the US to get married and then adjust status to LPR. Your only option if you get married in March is to go the CR1 route.

 

i would go the CR1 route if I was in your shoes. Casablanca is a tough consulate for K-1 visas (and even a little tough for CR1 visas but not nearly as much). The best advice I’ve seen for Casablanca is the more face time you have together the better. I’ve seen that most successfully Casa cases have had at least 4-5 face to face visits. They also take strongly into consideration age difference and religious difference so that is something you should prepare for. Read up on the Casablanca Morocco subforms on here to better prepare yourself for the interview etc. good luck

I believe it's based on time of entry to the US the first time after Visa is issued. Is that incorrect?

The visa class is based on the age of the marriage at the time of issuance of the visa.  The entry classification will change if the age of the marriage has gone past two years at time of entry

With 3 visits a marriage and Cr1 are safe to go

 

however,  your "to wife"  must look up the financial requirements and the poverty guidelines 

she will need to make 125%  of the income needed for 3 of people she supports

She will have to show income enough for the last 3 years (before the interview) to sponsor you

 

it really is illegal to work under the table and not pay taxes on that income

you marry this march and file in april or may,  the interview will not be till late 2020 so she can do 2018 and 2019 tax returns to correct that issue

she will also have to show 2017 income 

 

I would not even try K1 with your age difference

i did not mean 3 of the people / I meant # of people she supports

To add to all this

she will be your main sponsor and therefore needs the 3 years of tax returns for CR1 (last year at interview)

Both her and a cosponsor need to do an affidavit of support

Does she support mother and stepfather?

 

Example of poverty levels are for 2018 (only)/i am sure they will be slightly higher for 2019 and 2020

3 people $25,975 USD (has to include you)

5 people $36,775 USD

this is to give you an idea of the amount of money she needs to earn to support a CR1 application
