hello all

 

my husband and i are just beginning the ir-1 journey but i havent seen anyone else go down this road at our ages yet and i wondered if it will be a 'red flag' ... i am a uk citizen aand he is us citizen, i am almost 60 and he is late 60s.

i have no health issues and finance isnt a problem. we already own property together and have  been married six years.

 

thanks in advance for your replies

I don't think age is an issue at this stage of yours between you and your husband . However , I will preferred you to concentrate and build more evidence in your relationship which is so matters most to proof to the CO at the time for your interview.

Wishes you all the best.

Only potential issue is finances due to medical insurance/care. But you noted finances are fine (get some insurance quotes to be sure!).

We've applied for a K1 Visa. My fiance will be 60 soon and I am 63.  I'm new to this process, and certainly no expert. but never thought our ages would be an issue. I hope not!  Conversely, I hoped it would be helpful that I earn more than the 125% requirement and my house is paid for so I have no mortgage. I also have a long work history and a little stability.

Your case is definitely not in red flag territory.  You're not that different in age and presumably are both English speakers.  You'll see some cases on these forums that are clearly red flags to overcome: age differences of 40-50 years, inability to speak the same language, met once in person before marriage.  You're far from that territory.
