hello... I have posted several topics, all of them very important to cover...

 

My fiance and I have been together since February 20th 2016, we met at an establishment in Cartagena Colombia, after we met, we fell deeply in love  and  we moved in together on march of that same year. I was in Colombia finishing my medical doctor career. I am 10 years older than him, that has not been an issue at all!  My fiance is very mature and very caring, and we get along pretty well... I would say excellent. During 2016 we lived together in Cartagena, once I was done with my medical career i came back to the US, and since then I have been traveling back and forth a lot!!! I would say more than three times per year and staying for long periods of times. We communicate every day, all day... I am always traveling to Colombia on special events like his birthday, my birthday, new year... for his university graduation, mothers day...we are deeply in love and he proposed last year Sept 15th, 2018 on a beautiful island in Cartagena... we had my best friend and her boyfriend come along the trip... I am so afraid that our age gap might be a red flag for immigration... we are a very cute couple, you can not even notice the age difference.. we have too much fun together... and we already experienced living together for a whole year...

Actually to be very honest here your age gap isn't that big at all in comparison to other couples. You guys look like you will be good to go in regards to the K1 visa and shouldn't be that worried. You have already spent a lot of time together as a couple so proving a bonafide relationship won't be hard at all.

10 years is not too bad honestly. Also, having lived together, and a lot of trips and face time helps to prove legit relationship and off set the issue in most embassies.

no... not in our culture.... and his parents love me very much... his family are very happy with me...

Why are you worried then?  You simply need to demonstrate the validity of your relationship and move forward.

when I sent the I129f i sent tons of pictures, and all my passport stamps and plane tix, also i explained how we met and the chronology of our relationship... the only thing i totally forgot not send was the intend to marry statement, so we received an RFE requesting that from the benificiary and my final divorce decree that was also requested, because i sent the one given to me the day my divorce was finalized. I sent in on april 25th. Since i submitted the aplication last year and my first NOA1  was 12/03/18, i had sent evidence of my relationship from 2016-2018, so I took advantage that i was sending the RFE requested documents and sent evidence of my 3 trips  of 2019...pictures and plane tix... and passport stamps

Again these are for more "high fraud" countries. Plus there are other "issues" or red flags generally too. you should be fine by sound of your time line and again amount of visits and time spent together.

I challenge you to find one case where age was the reason.  

 

PS.  I have a significantly larger age gap with my wife

I have to agree with @Ben&Zian on this one as well. The age gaps usually only are an issue in certain high fraud countries. They won't be the sole determining factor to deny or turn down a petition but if a couple has a high number of red flags in their petition then the age gap might just be the nail that sealed the coffin so to speak.
