I am frequently asked by couples interested in applying for a K1 Fiancé Visa whether a large age difference will cause immigration to deny their Fiancé Visa request. Generally the answer is no, but a large age difference between a couple is a factor that USCIS will consider. There is no set rule or restriction on ages, but the wider the gap between the couple’s ages, the more scrutiny you can expect your application to receive. USCIS will evaluate all the factors that you submit to show that your relationship is genuine. Where there is a very large age difference between the couple, the more facts you should present to show that you are truly in love. In my experience, age differences of 10, 20 and even 30 years is not uncommon.
