Farid and I met online, we chatted and made phone calls etc for a year, I went to Morocco in December 2007, I stayed and we decided to marry. I became a Moroccan resident and decided to Direct Consular file for him. We petitioned in October, petition was approved immediately and he got his interview on December 22nd and he was issued his visa on Dec 23rd. We flew into Texas on January 20th. We are both working. We are living with my parents as I am renting my home to a friend of mine. Farid found work immediately and he has progressed into the main office now which we are very thankful for. If anyone needs help with Direct Consular Filing in Morocco please send me a pm. We recently sent in our petition to remove conditions. Will keep you updated on our progress. We are hoping and praying that all goes well. We got our NOA 1 on November 2nd and Biometrics appt on December 10th. We got approved on March 23rd for lifting of conditions. Farid has his 10 year permanent residency card now and he is hoping to file for citizenship in October of this year. God has been so good to us and we are hoping to go on vacation to Morocco this year as well. Farid has filed for citizenship today Oct 28, 2011. We are hoping for the best. Farid passed his citizenship test on Thursday, February 23rd. Wohoo, so grateful to God, friends and family. Farid has his oath ceremony scheduled for Friday, July 6th. Farid had his oath ceremony and now he is a naturalized US citizen. Wohoo We made a trip to Morocco in May of 2012 to visit family. God has been very good to Farid and I and we are doing our best to make it together as a couple. We are in Morocco from July 20 to Aug 16 2013.
