i just starting reading some info online and seeing that having a big gap between our ages is a potential red flag to denial. me and my fiancee have been together for 6 years and we never thought this could be a reason for denial. it took is this long to decide what we were gonna do as far as us getting married. but now the age issue came up..i am 23 yrs old and she is 31. i go and see her at least twice a yr since ive been with her, we have bunch of phone records, PICTURES, emails letters, pics with her fam, will they still deny her cuz of age?? i think i have enough proof to show its a legitimate relationship and that we dont care about age. how can we prove that age isnt a factor in our relationship?

8 years isn't so much. Some people have 25 years age difference. Just show lots of proof to overcome any minimal negative effect (if any) an 8 year age gap would have. Though... you have been together since you were 17 and she was 25? Best of luck.

weve been friends for a long time, our families are close since they live in a small town, in sept 2005 we started dating turned 18 that same month. yes i was legal, lmao, she had turned 26 the august before we became official. so on our 6th yr anniversary, i will be 24 and she will be 32. we have a lot of pics and letters, all sorts of proof. my itineraries evrything surprisingly i saved it all.

Who is the petitioner? If male 23 is the petitioner I do not see a problem.

yes san diego i am the petitioner and 23 yrs old. just i dont see how it become a red flag. age is just a number and shouldnt matter when there is love in a relationship and you want to spend the rest of your life with that person

In this case no problem at all. The case where it may be red flag:

Female petitioner 50 y.o and male beneficiary 20 y.o., met once and immediately got married. Your case is a piece of cake.

Age difference does matter in the eyes of COs though. Not in your case!

Good luck! Mexico allowed us to survive this long K1 wait. I moved my fiancee from Russia to Tijuana and was commuting to work every day through San Ysidro :)

My husband and I have an 8 year difference as well. I am the USC, the female, and I am the one that is 8 years older. We were together for 10 years before filing. It was never even mentioned at the consulate interview, or his green card interview. I don't see it as a problem, at all. BTW, I was 31, and he was 23 when we became a couple. :star:

seems like we almost have something in common. as far as ages. so there might be a possibility that they wont care.

Nope. I do not think they will care. :thumbs:

It is not unusual for the culture there. Several of my husband's friends were dating, or married to older women too.

age difference is not a reason for denial...i have a friend...her fiancee is 27yrs older than her.but she was approved for a visa..and she's right now in the states.

proof of relationship does matters most..not the age gap difference.so dont worry.

good luck!

I don't see your age (8 years) an issue. I am the woman and the petitioner and I am 21 years older than my husband. We dated 21 months before marrying. Yes it was long distance online dating before we meet but we have much documented proofs and affidavits from friends and family to show this is real relationship. I am currently with him in his country and getting ready to start my filing process. We were just married May 3rd.

One thing I know is this interviewers are trained and know all the red flags of a "mail order bride/groom" marriage. I am not sweating it at all. Heck my husband is 1 year younger than my own daughter. But no worries. Stay tuned for good happy news as this journey of the immigration filing unfolds. Best to you and your wife.
