hi

 

it will depend on how much she will be making this year and the next

 

the process will take over a year, so current income will matter,  she will need to make over 31k to cover 4 people if her mom isn't her dependent 

 

if it only herself, plus 2 kids plus you, she would need to make over 31, maybe 32k, every March or April, the new poverty guidelines comes out, and it is more than the year before,  so she will need to check the 2019 poverty guidelines or depending on when she files and how long the process takes, it could be under the 2020 poverty guidelines, 2018 poverty guidelines are over 31 thousand a year for 4 people

 

will she continue to live at her mom's? she can put her mom's address and then make a change of address if she moves in the future

It's time to file taxes again; tell her not to lie this time about her income.

It is too bad she omitted the tips.   

 

If her mother joint sponsors as a household member there might be enough combined income for the 5 of you?

Does she claim her tips as income and pay taxes on them? I'm willing to guess not. 

 

Morocco is a difficult consulate to get a visa from and they may ask questions like how can she afford to come visit you and all the marriage expenses if she can't afford to sponsor you? 

 

I hope you have spent a lot of visits together already to improve your chances

She can say the truth, that's what she needs to say. If it is with her mom than its with her mom, as fpr.the income, she can add the tips on her tax return for 2018 filing , current income is king as most say around these parts.

It might be best until she has more income reported such as next years W2s.  Since she is getting cash tips it is not showing up on her paystub so using pay stubs to show current income will not help meet the guidelines.  Since it takes a year to get the VISA maybe waiting a two months.  That will make sure that next years data will be ready by the NVC or interview time.  By then she will have a better tax return and hopefully pay stubs.

you and she can state mother's address as her permanent address

temporary or permanent it does not matter 

if she supports her mom ,  then family size would be 5

for information she needs to marry in Morocco,  it takes anywhere from 3 weeks (and that is fast ) to more than a month

she will need a criminal report (within 90 days of coming for the marriage)

a birth certificate

birth certificates for both her children

proof of income (for this it can just be letter from employer with dates of employments and income)

divorce papers of previous marriage or death notice if he passed away

a resume stating her intent to marry in Morocco to you

4 passport photos

1. she will first go to US embassy for Affidavit of eligibility to marry (look up the fee on us embassy site)

2  get that and all other papers translated into Arabic (6 copies)

3  take the affadivit and other documents to Rabat to the Office of Foreign Minister (make sure there is a woman with her as the lines for women and men are seperate)

4  she now needs a medical exam from Morcocco doctor

5. next contact your Family law section at the Prosecutor office at Court of Appeals where you live for the interviews with police and judge with your application to marry 

she will be asked if you slept together and of course,  you can't as you are not married

she will be asked how much dowery you have promised and/or paid

among other questions 

you may be required to provide her with an interpretor for the interviews 

 

she should bring the I 130 and I 130a applications with her so  you two can fill them out without the expense of mailing things back and forth
