I think he will not find a visa problems i think he should go to the UK consulate in Morocco they will give him all information, instruction to follow and forms that you will need maybe you can see that in their website you google UK consulate in morocco and you might find the website and for the marriage is going to be a Moroccan one i mean with the government of morocco and this marriage certificate and forms that he is going to get from the consulates and he will collect all documents that he needs in they instruction what is going to qualify you fiance to get his visa .

NB: you will also have document to send it to your state too .

Have a good day

good evening, there should be no problem you getting married just because you are in receipt of benefits, you just need proof of your income along with all the other documents requested police check etc as other people have listed.
if you make an application for your spouse to come to the UK you may be exempt from the £18,000 plus threshold to apply as you are in receipt of DLA and registered as disabled. however you may need to show that you have some savings in the bank to keep yourself financially and your spouse when making your application.

If former spouse is deceased, his or her death certificate. Provide original or certified copies of these documents.

#
An American police record must be obtained from a police department in the state where you last resided or from the FBI at...#

Important note about document requirements: This list is not exhaustive. Moroccan authorities may ask for additional information or other documents proving evidence of employment or a source of income.The marriage process is handled by the Government of Morocco. After obtaining a completed Affidavit of Nationality and Eligibility to Marry, you will not need to return to the U.S. Consulate General in Casablanca. You will need to have your completed Affidavit of Nationality and Eligibility to Marry translated into Arabic. Be certain all documents that are not in Arabic are translated into Arabic. Take your completed Affidavit of Nationality and Eligibility to Marry and other documents to the following Government of Morocco offices to be certified. There is a fee for this certification. The length of time needed to complete this phase of the process varies from a few days to a few months. After obtaining the certification from the office listed above, you and your fiancé(e) must contact the Family Law Section at the Prosecutor’s office at the Court of Appeal in the city where you will be married. You will need to provide that office all the required documents. Authorization to marry will be granted after the court completes administrative processing. The length of time required for this process varies. The file with your documents is forwarded to a family judge who will inform you of the next steps you must take in order to obtain your Moroccan marriage certificate.

Hello,
So, any luck or progress on that Lithuanian-Moroccan marriage? I am also a Moroccan man planning with my Lithuanian fiancée to get married this summer, and we're really lost in the lists of documents we should provide, specially from her side since there's no Lithuanian Embassy in Morocco to clear it up for us when it comes to a certificate called "Certificat de capacité au mariage" (Certificate of Ability to get married) that's required by the Moroccan Authorities to accomplish a marriage in Morocco and which is supposedly delivered by the embassy or consulate of the foreign country in Morocco, well since there's no such a representation of Lithuania of Moroccan soil (the Lithuanian Embassy in france is the one supposedly representing LT in Morocco, Polish embassy takes care of emergencies for Lithuanians in Morocco and German embassy delivers visas on their behalf).
I will really be grateful if some Lithuanian-Moroccan married couple shares their experience with us.

@Laura:

Thank you for your reply. Although you didn't bring any answer, but it feels kind of reassuring to find someone in the same situation, given the fact that there are not many Lithuanian-Moroccan couples.

About that paper, the capacity of marriage (Certificat de capacité au Mariage CCM), actually the only possibility of obtaining it is by obtaining a "permission of getting married abroad" from the office of your city, then you ask them about what you should do to it to be available (in our case, my darling will need to go to Vilnius to get it stamped).

You're welcome - Abderrahmane

@Lawriencija: Any progress on the papers you need to make? .. we currently made all papers, we sent our file to court and from court it was sent to the police department which treats mixed marriages requests, they were friendly and asked us a couple of questions, now we'll wait until August 4th to get an answer from them (there's a one week holidays here) and then the file will be sent back to court again so the judge signs the authorization of mixed marriage, so that the "adoul" can make us a marriage contract smiling smiley

I would be really interested in your feedback or anyone else's who is a mixed couple Lithuanian and Moroccan. As for me, good news, we got finally married in Morocco.
My wife and I then legalized the contract at the services of Moroccan Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Once my wife was back home in Lithuania, she registered her marriage there, first by a stamp in Vilnius (URM) after translation of course and then in her city, and she obtained the marriage certificate.
Would anyone be able to explain to me what did they do in the matter of visa for the Moroccan partner, whether it is for a short-stay or a long-stay? thank you!

Abdedove sorry for late reply. Congratulations for you both!
I Need your help.. I am living in England and all papers I will get from Lithuanian embassy in London unfortunately they never heard about that "capacity of marriage" well they heard but they are saying that capacity of marriage is document proving that I'm not married at this moment and "abdoul" saying that its like permission to get married. my embassy said they are not giving any permissions .. can you please advice from which place in vilnius your wife got it and how exactly it calls as i am confused and now don't have any idea where to get it!!!

Hello Laura, glad to read you back smiling smiley

Well, my wife tells you that the name of this document is seimos padetis, it is a paper that has all your personal information, name surname asmens kodas etc ... and in the end it says that "this person is single and is not prevented from contracting a marriage as long as it is not against Lithuanian Law" (or something like that, my translation isn't accurate.

Most of "Adouls" in Morocco follow the French procedure (because most of mixed couples are Franco-Moroccans) but, in our case with Lithuanian partners, that is the paper that stands for Capacity of Marriage, even if the Adoul seems to doubt it or even the judge (in our case even the judge didn't recognize it until we brought him the Arabic translation which we made in Morocco from the French Translation that my wife already made in Lithuania, so we had his secretary insist on him that it is the Lithuanian document that stands for the Capacity of Marriage).

My wife provided me with a link to read more about this paper and how to have it: [mepis.vrm.lt]

Feel free to contact us on bouboual.abd@gmail.com if you have anymore request.

Best of luck in your procedure, it is a tough task I should say!

Salam Laura, congratulations to both of you!

We, on the other hand, were a bit short on money since I'm still a medical intern and she's a student, so we made just a humble party in Morocco with the closest family and friends. I don't know if it is a good idea or not to make a party likewise a year later in Lithuania for her family and friends? would it be a good idea given the Lithuanian context or no? my wife prefers not to but I wish to have one and I don't know ...

Anyway, March 14th is just a month from now, so I suggest you purchase your ticket this week if you want the cheapest! my wife came 2 times to Morocco so far: in 2013, she came with her family and they purchased tickets with Wizzair and Easyjet, from Warsaw airport to Milan Bergamo, then they had to transit with a bus to Milan Malpensa (80 km further) to fly with Easyjet from there to Casablanca ... in 2014, I've purchased her a more comfortable flight from Riga to Paris (Charles de Gaules), all she had to do was to change terminals to take the connection flight from there to Casablanca again .. I prefer Casablanca's Mohamed V Airport for one reason: its underground train station, it spares me the greedy taxi drivers outside the airport, since I don't have a car! .. I see now you're in the UK, which is the case of many Lithuanian-Moroccan couples, it seems like we're the only couple in which the Lithuanian spouse is living in Lithuania and not in the UK. If you're interested in asking Lithuanian women married to Moroccan women and living in the UK about that check this facebook group [www.facebook.com] ... but there should be direct flights from UK to Morocco and cheaper than flying from Lithuania ... one last thing, do not forget luggage fees, sometimes they're not included specially with low-cost companies, and sometimes you pay the fees but they're only for luggage with the outgoing flight, so when you're going to check-in for your flight to return home, you're surprised at check-in desk that you need to pay fees for your luggage, so insist on your company about that and have them answer you by email and print it (just in case, or keep some money when you're returning home, don't do the mistake of returning with 0 euros in your pocket like me haha)

Oh the visa! "ma bête noire" like the French say, causmaras grinning smiley .. actually I didn't apply yet, but exchanged a few emails with the German Embassy in Rabat, they said I should apply for a normal Schengen visa to go there, which means I'll have to prove a good financial situation etc .. I think I should provide them with a copy of our Lithuanian marriage contract and any other piece of paper to convince them that I'm "rightful", once there, if your husband is planning to live there with you, he should check with Migracija services there, I guess the first step would be applying for a temporary residence card, but I have no further info about that, if your husband gets any luck with visa before this summer (that's when I'm planning to apply for a visa but only for 2 weeks to LT and come back to finish college) please write me.

Best of luck to both of you.

Kind regards,
Abderrahmane.
