Consulate Review: Morocco
Review Topic: General Review
Event Description
Review Date : March 8, 2019
Embassy Review : My husband's interview was scheduled for February 14, 2019. However, on February 13th, he received a call from the Consulate informing him that his interview was canceled and would be rescheduled at a later date. The following Monday, I called the Consulate 1st thing in the morning (their morning) & the man I spoke with said he would speak with the CO & then call my husband. He called my husband within the hour and gave him a new interview date & time. He told my husband March 5, 2019 at 10:30am. He e-mailed me the date and time of March 5th at 12:30pm. Obviously we were confused. We tried calling multiple times, we N E V E R got through.

On March 5, 2019 we went to the Consulate at 10am to inquire on the time. My husband was told to come back at 12:30pm, so he did. We had created a binder to present to the CO at the interview. The binder has divder tabs separating different sections, which are labeled as Civil Documents, Tax & Financial Forms, Tickets (all my plane tickets, passport stamps, train tickets, etc) Communication which shows screenshots of chat logs & video.calls, and.finally Photos. 48 photos inside of photo sleeves. In a separate folder, he had all copies they might ask for & the envelope from his medical exam. He was very prepared and organized.

He had his fingerprints done & he was given the documents that we mailed to to the NVC for the Affidavit of Support packet. Then he went to meet with the CO. He was a middle aged, white, American man. He asked "basic" questions. My husband said he asked a lot of questions about my religion. He asked why I chose to convert to Islam and if I have other friends who also did this. He also asked how many people came to our wedding and why we didn't have a large wedding (traditional) and my husband told him it's because my family wasn't able to attend. He asked if we want kids and how many. He asked if I have plans for the future for myself, my career. My husband told him I want to go to nursing school. He asked many questions about my trips to Morocco. My husband told him I was currently there and that the longest I'd stayed was 90 days. He showed him all my old plane tickets. He asked where we went for our honey moon & my husband answered. He asked my husband what he plans to do for work in the US & my husband told him he plans to find work in a factory until he can find work in his profession (film making). The CO literally tore our binder apart. He removed the sleeves from the rings to look at everything.

My husband said he felt very confident and felt like the interview went great until the CO gave him the Administrative Processing paper & said "we'll call you." He did keep his passport. A few hours later, we were e-mailed the DS5535 form. He completed it & emailed it to the Consulate.

Now we just wait, again. Our priority date is July 5, 2017. I just wish we could start our life. 💔😭 I had to leave Morocco again without my husband by my side.

I'm so sorry you guys are dealing with this madness for my husband and I are going through this dilemma as well as many others. It's heartbreaking no able to have our husband with us but GOD KNOWS BEST. INSHA ALLAH WE WILL ALL HEAR GOOD NEWS SOON. After 3 months you can escalate an inquiry with your local congress man/woman that's where I'm at we had all of our documents nothing was missing we were told congratulations but then put in AP in a matter of seconds. HEART BREAKING... FEELS LIKE WE WERE BANISH FOR BEING BAD for a lack of a better word/Phrase...

*Notice about estimates: The estimates are based off averages of other members recent experiences
(documented in their timelines) for the same benefit/petition/application at the same filing location.
Individual results may vary as every case is not always 'average'. Past performance does not necessarily
predict future results. The 'as early as date' may change over time based on current reported processing
times from members. There have historically been cases where a benefit/petition/application processing
briefly slows down or stops and this can not be predicted. Use these dates as reference only and do not
rely on them for planning. As always you should check the USCIS processing times to see if your application
is past due.
