Q: I am looking to apply for a K1 visa. My fiancé is a 19 year old male from the Philippines. I am 48 years old.
My question is that we met on an adult website and within weeks we fell in love. I have went to the Philippines and met him in person along with his family. While I was there we got engaged. Is meeting on an adult website something that would red flag our K1 visa?
A: A US citizen can sponsor a foreign national for a fiancée visa provided the two have met in person, two years prior to filing the K visa application. There would be no red flag because you met each other on the web. There may be a red flag because of the age difference, and thus your application would receive stricter scrutiny. Retain counsel anywhere in the United States for flat fee representation to handle all steps from point A to point Z.
