    Julia&Joseph got a reaction from JohnMN in what is considered large age difference?   
    Hi,
    It should not be a problem. They have no any legal right to deny a k-1 visa because of the age differencE. The age difference between me and my fiancee is 26 years and we don't think it will be a problem. We've been living together for a year and a half and now have a 2 month old beautiful baby boy. Our interview is gonna come in a week and we will post if we have any problem.

    I don't understand the whole "higher taxes" thing. USCIS received over 10.5 million dollars last year to process K-1 visa, where did that money come from? the fee you pay to process the visa. No tax money should have been needed. When it lowered the processing fee in November it cut over 2 million dollars from its budget. If it needed to hire more workers it shouldn't have lowered the fee. When I mail a letter from New York to California it doesn't cost tax payers money, I pay the processing cost. When I renew my drivers licence it doesn't cost tax payers money, I pay the processing cost. When I applied for my passport, I payed the processing cost. What they should do is if you want a K-1 visa processed faster they should charge a higher rate, just like I did to process my passport. I paid $80 more to get it faster.
    What people don't seemed to understand is that K-1 are an "expedited" visa to begin with. Yes, the K-1 visa is an expedited visa thats why you get it so fast (averaging 6-9 month). Can you imagine the wait if it was not "expedited".

    You sound sceptical but the answer to your scepticism is Yes. The US post office who send mail and process US passports and each state DMV receive NO tax money to operate. The US post office took in 68 billion dollars in revenue last year. I even looked up the budget for the state of Connecticut for the year 2010 and there is no money going to the state department of motor vehicles (DMV)it operates on "fees".

    This comes from the Department of Homeland Security budget to congress for 2007.
    In 2006 USCIS took in 1.649 billion dollars in "Citizen and immigrant services" fees. (Fees for K-1, K-3, green cards, fingerprinting and photograph fee etc..etc.. it took in 11 million for K-1 in 2006).USCIS executes almost all it's citizen and immigration services on the revenue it collects in fees.
    Why "almost" all? because people seeking varies asylum do not pay the fee and congress foots the bill. This should close the subject on the fact that NO tax dollars are used to process K-1's.
