Consulate Review: Morocco
Review Topic: IR-1/CR-1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : January 7, 2013
Embassy Review : My husband said he was interviewed by a woman (sorry no description) he said she was nicer than the woman who interviewed him for the K-1.... He was asked questions about

1. my children their name, ages and birthdates and how far away my older children live from me
2. My job, where, I work, how long I have worked there, How much I am paid and how long it takes me to get to work.
3. How many times I have visited him and length of each stay
4. Why I did not visit him last year
5. My parents names, where they live and work
6. My ex husbands name, how long we were married, when we divorced

So far these are the only questions my husband remembers being asked... I kinda comes to him here and there... LOL..

Anyhoo.... I started this new job in September and thought we would not need a sponsor because my income is over the guidelines, but I found out that because my income from 2011 was below we would need a sponsor, this was a few days before the interview that I found out about this.. So his sister who lives in the states said she would be his sponsor. So her husband sent me all her doc's, but I was like I think we need from both because you are married and file taxes together, but her husband said no just her info will be fine. So I emailed a copy to the Consulate and also to my husband to print and take with him to the interview. When his interview was done he was told he needed the original signed page for the I-846.... Just so happens his sister had arrived in casa that same day at 9:20 am... So my husband had to go to the airport to pick her up go to print the page needed have her sign it then take it back to the consulate.... So that gets done... But 30 min into the long train ride back to Fes he gets a call from the Consulate saying that they now need his sisters husbands info So I call her husband tell him what we need and send him the $$$ to express mail it to Morocco ($126 DHL) % days later I get the email that our case was approved and my husband can pick up his visa the next wed afternoon

Finally done with the craziness ALHAMDULILLAH!!!!!!!

*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.

** Not all cases are transfered
