Hi,

Your post caught my eye, as we are in Admin. Processing now for 5 months since the 1st interview. We meet the criteria you described in your post. I am 49, and my male fiance is 30, and we met online, and I am not religious, and he is not a practicing Muslim, and, we are very much in love. But, we are losing our minds with this AP, because it has been since the end of February that he had the 1st interview, whereupon he was told that when he returned some paper, he would get his visa, and that was early March. What do you think? Also, I moved from my permanent address of 15 years to a temporary one in another state. I plan on returning to California with my fiance. Do I need to give them this temporary address? Anything of value you can contribute is greatly appreciated.

Sincerely,

Carol

Sad but true that petitions from older women planning on marrying a younger man from another country may end up being scrutinized more closely compared to older men doing the same with a much younger woman.

I guess USCIS thinks younger men engaged or married to an older women are doing immigration scams more than younger women are.

Hi , My fiance is 34 and I am 55 and we just got approved for the NOA2. So there is hope. He is in Tangier Morocco so don't give up. Now time for the interview once Casa gets papers. So we will see what happens there.

Maybe there is something else going on and not age. It wouldn't hurt to give the new address.

Good luck

As Sarah pointed out some APs take longer than others and to guess why is all speculation. REmebre the consulate was not operating at full speed for a while there and that can also play a factor in the time I' m sure. It will come through.

For your change in address I would say you do not need to notify USCIS because you are finished with your part of the process and you ar ethe USC.

I understand how frustrating this all is for you. We have been on A/P for over 4 1/2 months and its hard waiting and not knowing when its going to happen. Honestly i think this is the hardest part of the whole process. But it will be over sooner or later for sure. Just try to give it some more time. Your day is coming you will see and this waiting will be over!! I will keep you both in my prayers and pray for us too. (F)

Long AP/AR doesn't seem to have anything to do with the validity of the relationship, just the likelihood of a name hit. If they suspected fraud, based on other Casa experiences, your case would look different (i.e., they would have tried to return it or something.)

You can speculate until the cows come home about why your AP is taking longer...I tried it too when I was there. :P AP is what it is, and we never know the reason why our particular case takes longer than the next. I believe AP is all about security checks on the the SO, and not on aspects of the relationship, as that has been approved already. (or you would have been asked for additional info or denied). As someone on MENA would say, don't borrow trouble trying to figure it out. :no: You'll just get more stressed and won't really know when you have found the answer. Take the time to know your fiance better, and try to talk through some of the issues you see posted here on MENA, to avoid them later...like what he will do while he waits for EAD (see Dee's looking for work thread) and things of that sort. Might help make adjusting easier later. Good luck. :dance:

Good luck and welcome to the "waiting game:! I've been playing it much longer and it's no fun at all! Nothing I've done seem to make any difference to our case. I think, they're just waiting for us to give up, but I'm still playing!

(We have an age difference a few years less than yours) and i am really fed up with Casa, but can't do anything about it, just wait and b$#@%^ from time to time. :girlwerewolf2xn::diablo::cry:

I think if they suspected fraud then you would have already been denied. Sometimes AP takes longer for some people. Unfortunately we have no idea why that is.

Morocco is known for denying the visa and sending it back to the USCIS in these older women/younger man situations, if they suspect fraud. Maybe it is just normal AP, or maybe they are testing the relationship some. But the fact that they didn't send it back is encouraging. Hang in there, keep in contact with the Department of State. Most important, put it out of your mind when there is nothing you can do but wait. Easier said then done, yes, but it is doable. Before you know it the entire thing will be over.

Hi--Could I ask you what happened at your second interview? Did they look at evidence you had accumulated since the first time? What kind of questions did they ask on the second interview--were they different from the first? Just wondering, preparing for the future. Thanks for any info, Debbie (and Hamid)

As far as I remember I PMd you with answers. 2nd interview was a joke, nothing else! Looked at the papers and told him to go home wait for K-3 visa and their call. Been waiting even since.
