If applying through the US embassy in Manila, children are required to attend their visa interview, even if they won't actually be asked any questions.  I don't think you need to worry about your fiancee's daughter being too active.  I saw toddlers running around in the embassy during my visit for interview.  Also, it might help that the 2-year-old daughter might be a 3-year-old by the time she needs to go for her K2 interview.

 

A big age gap is not usually an issue for USEM, as long as you can prove that you two are in a genuine relationship.  In your case, this remains to be seen as you have yet to meet your beneficiary in person.

 

I wish you well on your journey.

IMO, your situation may inflict issues and the way you describe it even more so. 'Knowing' someone for 6 years (during which they have had a relationship with someone else resulting in birth of the baby), already making a decision to pursue the K1/K2 route and only going to meet them in person for the first time doesn't fit into a genuine bona-fide relationship, either in time frame, or in how the relationships eventually develop. I wish you all the best but just try to get into the CO's pants and keep your eyes from opening wide. Your situation is uncomfortable, the red flags are serious and you need to build your evidence strong and reliable from scratch. Maybe a single face-time together will not be enough, maybe you will need to consider marriage and a spousal visa instead. The baby themselves is the least you may worry about

Do you think the daughter should go to interview? Children are required to attend of course questions are only directed to those children that are at an age that they can respond. Co's love to ask questions to children just because of their nature to "tell the truth".

 

Shes kinda to active i think to go with mom to interview i think but is it required? She may have a friend or mother accompany her to the interview to tend to the child if needed. Some embassies allow and other do not. Check with USEM's website.

 

Also do you think we will have a issue because of our age gap? It's very normal for their to be an age gap of your magnitude and USEM is very accommodating. You shouldn't have a problem.

 

She will be 24 this coming May 2019 and i will be 63 this coming April 2019 we have know each other for long time like 6 years we will be meeting for first time this coming April for one whole month the three of us the baby is not mine of course. Be sure to take a lot of pictures of the two of you and some include the baby as well as her family.  If you have a camera that can date and time stamp the picture that may come in handy. Pictures with family is great as it shows that the two of you are accepted by her family. Also, if you do any traveling pictures in recognizable places are also good evidence.

 

Thank You

There were several small children there when we were there for our interview. Also, don't focus so much on preparing for this process on the first visit. Get to know each other. Everything changes when you meet in person....

Not a newbie but lost my old info years ago) I have been through this process before --all the way through naturalization-- This site has always been a great help to me.

Agree that the bigger issue here is spending more time together since you have not yet met in person.  Meet, get to know each other in real life, then decide later about getting engaged to be married...  don't rush anything.  Another big question is the father of this child, is he okay with the child leaving the country to immigrate to the US?
