i need some real help.

my aunt who is 66 met a wonderful man who is 55.I am a US citizen and my whole family are citizens and live and work in the US. I work at a church where I have a music director who si very much interested in pursuing my aunt. We have concerns regarding her knowing English very poorly and being 11 years older. Does anyone have a similar situation they can share? Any approvals/denials; visa choice-K1,K3 or Cr-1?

She is located in Tbilisi Georgia. We are scared and confused:(((........please help

thanks kindly

PS he can only see her about once since the travels are so expensive:(

Well your post is a bit brief.... Have they met before? Are they currently chatting via skype or something? Beng interested in persuing someone is much much different that marrying someone. Please give us some more details so we can better guide you.

How did they meet? How have they been chatting and for how long? Have they ever met in person? etc etc etc

oh.thanks!

well, they met through me really, because the guy who is interested in my aunt works with me at a lutheran church. the have been communicating via skype only because she cant really speak english that well, so phone is difficult. they are really worried about the age difference and the English barrier. so, by the time he will be applying, they will know each other for about 1 year and a half. would you suggest marring there in Tbilisi? it is somewhat expensive to travel to Georgia, so would one visit be enough for marriage?

they have not met in person yet but he is about to go there in a month. I am afraid one visit is not enough to proof that they are in love:(,,,so i was thinking about K1 visa more than anything else until I reconsidered my opinion and realized that an actual marriage certificate is a much stronger thing to have in hand than applying for a non immigrant visa which is K 1.

They will have to meet first regardless of visa choice. Also they will have to communicate somehow. People have had difficulty obtaining a visa when a CO does not see the couple able to communicate.

Let them meet and see how they feel afterwards about moving forward with their relationship. He may decide that it's too expensive to go and visit the "love of his life" but that doesn't really make sense. And I wouldn't suggest using that as any sort of justification when petitioning. Especially when it may seem that you are attempting to match make to get your aunt to the US. (Not my opinion, just looking at it through a Consular Officer's eyes).

In the meantime do some reading in the Guides here on VJ to learn the steps involved in petitioning for a fiance and/or spouse visa.

I agree with Anh map...

I would have them meet in person and see if there is really a match there. A year and a half of communication is plenty as long as it is consistent. We talk by Skype, phone, and email and I save all records to show proof just in case. Although it is rather expensive to travel over there I think that marrying just to speed things up and save money is probably a rash decision. Under these circumstances a K1 is more along the lines of what they should do.

thanks for your reply. so you dont think 11 year age gap where she is older than him would be too difficult for visa issuance?

I personally dont feel that age makes a difference, however an adjucator may consider it more of an issue than I do. Honestly I am older (by 4 years) than my husband which I was nervous about as that is not typical in Georgia. But all in all we are in love and we can show them anything that they want to see to prove it! Just be prepared to do the same!
