AGE DIFFERENCE

81 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

4. A very large age difference between the couple can cause concern. However, there is no specific age limitation.

I am kinda worried about this issue since my fiance and I have 40+ age difference. Will it really be one of the reasons for denial of K-1 fiance visa or not?

Large age differences are common at the Manila embassy. This should not be an issue. Concentrate on demonstrating the bona fides of your relationship.

Immigration practices discrimination in rejecting older woman who have younger spouses while letting old men bring in females that are years younger than their own children. You should be fine.


This will not be over quickly. You will not enjoy this.

Some people are just plain jealous. The age difference "issue" can be very consulate specific; study up on yours. If you can prove a legitmate relationship exists and it is not just for a visa or to buy a young wife/husband, then you will be fine.

This makes me glad that my fiance is only 2 months older then me...

Sorry I don't have much advice to give though. But having your fiance go to the interview with you I think is a good idea, and of course bring lots of proof to show your relationship is real.

Depends on the CO and the consulate.

I have seen some posts here about the Moroccan embassy suggests they frown on large age differences. (I remember one where it was the USC female (being a lot older) that had issues)

At worse, it would just cause the CO to look closer at the underlying relationship, to ensure it is really bonafide and not just for immigration purposes.


My Advice is usually based on "Worst Case Scenario" and what is written in the rules/laws/instructions. That is the way I roll... -Protect your Status - file before your I-94 expires.

WARNING: Phrases in this post may sound meaner than they were intended to be. Read the Adjudicator's Field Manual from USCIS

My fiance and I - 29 years age difference. I think as long you have enough proof of evidence together & his financial is stable, it should be ok. I think my fiance present during my interview help me a lot. All the best! B-)

I think it's a stretch to advise that it will be ok. The more prudent answer is, as Bobby + Umit pointed out, it depends on the CO and the consulate.

Definitely agree with "Bobby + Umit" and "TracyTN." You never really know all the circumstances and the cultural norms and the CO and Embassies positions. I think I know which posting Bobby+Umit is referring to in which the woman was older than the man.

I also remember another posting from Romania where the woman was nine years older than the man and they were denied.

Again, this does not mean anything one way or the other for you. It depends more on your evidence of a genuine relationship, the Embassy and the CO for the interview.

Good luck.

:crying:

One friend I helped recently was approved with a 40 year age difference. The pinay is 24 and he's 64.

All gets down to evidence of having a bonafide relationship.

I don't recommend the petitioner attending the interview if he looks like a "dirty old man".

The age difference shows up more when you see the couple in person than in pictures.

Main thing is you show you are in love. He'd made 5 trips to "see" her.

I had friend with same problem as yours, she was k3/spouse. during her interview the consul doesn't believed that the married is real because her husband is pretty much older than her she was only 30 while her husband is 68 and she was sent to fraud department. while was their they keep on accusing her that she only used her husband to get to the US and after that she will divorce him how rude they are. they gave her counseling asking for many documents huge photos, mails and chats to proved of genuine relationship. she get through it. She is now in the us, california to be exact and living with her husband. Don't be afraid, just tell what is right and be true to yourself, as long as you are honest nothing to worry about. :thumbs:

If you're afraid that the age difference may result in a denial, the USC attending can help nip in the bud the bonafides, even if they can only sit in the lobby during the interview. Typically, an older man doesn't have many problems (though, I'll be honest: 40 years may be pushing things, from the consulate's point of view as that age difference is *very* uncommon in the US), and it's an older woman (5+ years) where you will see issues at many consulates - MENA, especially.

Legally, they CANNOT deny you for your age difference, because it's something that USCIS and the NVC was aware of when your petition went through the approval stage.

However, it is a red flag, and if there are any other red flags (mismatching stories, limited communication, only one or two visits, unusually fast engagement, not disclosing criminal/martial history, too many K1 applications, how you met, etc), you very well may see yourself being kicked into AP, kicked back to USCIS for reaffirmation, or flat out denied.

If your fiancé cannot be at the interview, make sure you are well prepared and all your documentation is in order. Make sure that any other potential red flags can be addressed with evidence or thoroughly explained.

Be prepared that you might have to fight for your visa.
