  1. Hi All, The situation for one of my relatives is like this. The US citizen has sponsored for her sister and as part of that application, the children are also present. My understanding is that when the application was filed, the children were below 18 years of age. Now, they are 25 and above. When the turn arrives for the primary applicant (i.e. sister of the US citizen), are the children still eligible to immigrate as PR's or is there a cut-off? I am not clear based on what I've read on the USCIS website. According to the website, it appears that a US citizen can sponsor a child who is above 21 years provided they are not married, or something along those lines. Could someone who has experience with this help me understand the nuances and what is currently applicable? Also, can a US citizen still file for their immediate relatives i.e. Parents and Siblings? I heard this option was terminated but I am not sure. Please advise.
  2. Hey guys... So, I was just reading a post from a fellow VJ member and I was thinking about the age gap situation. I am a US citizen and my last husband who is a US citizen was much older then me and we had a significant age gap. No one even questioned it, and of course, I am totally aware that this would be an issue for some individuals in other countries because of marriage fraud. My thoughts are... how can the interviewer really determine if the marriage is a fraud because of the age difference? I, of course, do not have a concern with age because love is all that really matters, but I am worried (I overthink at times) that this issue (age gap) prevents other people from being together. Seems so unfair, but what are your thoughts?
  3. Hello, another question. I didn't ever think our age gap would be an issue until very recently when I kept seeing people in here mention it. How bad does an age gap affect your outcome? Age gaps aren't a weird thing in either of our families so it never occurred to either of us that it may be an issue seeing as we are in a legitimate relationship. Our age gap is 20 years on the dot. My mum and Step dad have an age gap of 29 years (His actually American who moved here to Australia nearly 20 years ago) and his been my step dad nearly my entire life. My fiancee's sister, She and her other half have an age gap of 14 years. So for us personally it never seemed weird. We are about to start out interview portion of our VISA process and its dawned on me it may be an issue. We have only met once for 2 weeks in August 2019. We had 3 separate trips planed for 2020 (Tickets bought and paid for in April that I have proof of and proof of conversations about more visits in November and also Dec/Jan) that never came to be due to COVID. We have been friends for 3 years and dating for nearly 2. We have miles of video chat/conversations/facebook posts/twitter posts/plans (visits, wedding, house buying, getting pets, etc) spanning this entire time. Im not going to lie, I am now very worried we may be denied based on our age gap alone. If anyone else has gone through this having had a large age gap, please let me know how it all went.
  4. I am filling out the DS-260 (F41 Visa Class) for my sister, her spouse and her child who live in another country. My sister's child is going to turn 21 in about 7 months. By this time, I will turn in the Visa application and the necessary documents. We waited 14 years to have this I-130 petition approved, and I would hate to have any issues because of this. So, will there be any issues to the case because of his my sister's child's age?
