Hello Friends,

Im a June Filer and i wanna ask if anyone knows what month the USCIS is currently processing or give me a clue on how to confirm that. And also is there any specification between a couples age difference in the American law? As age is not a barrier to loving or been with whom you love and me and our kids are moving to Nigeria to live there until my husband is able to come home because i miss him so much and i wanna be where he is. :ot2: I am 9yrs older than my husband, will that ever affect him during is CR1 interview? :ot:

Hope to hear from you all...

Keep Loving.....

Stay in Love.....

Love Life....

Love 1 another....

and Love F O R E V E R!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If you go by the immigration timeline here on VJ it says USCIS should be processing April cases for CR1/IR1 applicants....but then if you look at the March cases there are still quite a few left to be approved. Most likely they are working on cases March and older. If you have filed in June you could have up to a 5 month wait before your case makes it through USCIS (the first step).

There is no age law here in the US with regards to marriages as long as the persons are of legal age in that state to marry. Age usually does not have an effect on obtaining a visa but can create a problem if the age difference is one that is not generally accepted in the culture of the beneficiary. Just be certain to provide plenty of proof of a bonafide marriage.

Best Wishes on your Journey

Well said cornbread. You're on point. :thumbs:

Hi KDOR. I'm new here too. I wish I could wait this thing out close to Pman too. Lucky you!!!

Have you considered DCF? I was turned down because I hadn't lived in Nigeria for 6 months, but I suspect with USCIS processing times, you could probably get through a lot quicker filing directly at Lagos consulate. They can be a little tough out there, so like cornbread says, make sure your bonafides are substantial. I'm already grilling Pman with mock interview questions :)

The journey is yet young. Godspeed to us all (F)

Thats true Pman and soso, i also consider DCF but the USC has to live in Nigeria for atleast 6 month, after its adjudicated in lagos it still have to go to NVC to be assigned an immigrant visa number. So its better if u stay in the States and file and it wont have to affecr your I-864 if u have been out of the state for awhile and u may be require to re-establish your citizenship with prove of leasing or any document that has your name and address. So the DCF is not really a good option to me.
