Comments : We forgot one document at the interview. The consular asked us to send it to them before they could approve or deny. We sent them the document, then a few days later our case status online read as 'Issued.' Because we are in Casablanca near the embassy, everything went very quickly! It was 6 days until we found out the visa was issued then the very next day we were able to pick it up at Aramex.

Interview was approx. 10 minutes.
Some questions that stood out in the interview...

What will you do in the U.S.
[take English classes to improve language]

Did you have a Moroccan engagement ceremony
[he responded yes but did not push to show any proof. at the end of the interview the consular asked to see photos from the ceremony]

The consular pointed to people in our photos and asked Amine to name them.

The consular asked where the court record was. We had the police record but not the court record. Amine responded saying that he thought the court record was only required for people who have been charged with a crime [because this is what the US website said]. The consular said to send the paper to the embassy so she could make a decision. She was very kind. She said after she gets that paper it should be fine. And it wass thank you God

Our strong feeling about the interview process is that they already make a decision before the interview based on the proof submitted. We think that the interview is for the consular to analyze the behavior of the applicant and see their reaction to some questions. Amine remained calm and answered every question with a short honest answer. If your relationship is honest and real, and you have strong financial support, then you should be fine. Neither of us had been previously married nor had children.

*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.
