What is the possibilty this REASON TO PMV denial.

Hi all,
Its possible that the following reason can lead to visa refusal when applying for prospective marriage visa offshore?

REASONS
Significant age difference between the fiancee and his or her sponsor
◦Poor English skills of the foreign fiancee.
◦Fiancee and sponsor have not spent enough time together in person. The◦◦Unstable financial situation of the sponsor.

Hi,

I wouldn't be worried.
My partner has poor English skills too. Once the partner visa is granted the foreign partner is allowed to take free English classes to improve their English (up to 500 hours), so immigration would never consider poor English as a reason to deny a partner visa - that's inhumane.

As for the financial situation, if immigration is worried they'll ask for an AoS (assurance of support), and as long as it's provided the visa won't be denied. Again, I myself was in an unstable financial situation and we had no problems.

I think others will have the same opinion.

No problem, sorry I forgot about that part of the question.

I guess a decision would be made on your evidence, and not directly because you haven't spent enough time together - someone might have been in the same situation so they could share their experience. I think as long as your evidence is sound, they cannot penalise you for that.

2 to 4 years is nothing, I promise There've been some who were 10 years apart, and they were a bit worried, but 2-4 years is very normal - you can't choose who you fall in love with, what are the chances that two partners are both the same age?

Regarding not much time spent together me and my wife at the time of applying had spent a total of 5 weeks together before getting married and applying for my visa. This was on-shore back when it was ok to fly over on a visitor visa....get married....apply....and stay in country while application was being processed.

We didnt seem to have any issues.

I think a 2-4 year age difference could hardly be classed as significant if you're both adults. The only time that would matter is if one is underage or the other person is in a position of authority over them (like a teacher, etc), then the person needs to be at least 18 instead of 16 for it to be consensual (as far as I'm aware). My partner is almost 4 years older than me but we don't notice any age difference at all. When you said significant age difference I thought "15 years"!! I would call 2 years no age difference for adults. Certainly nothing to worry about there!

Just remembered- think you both have to be at least 18 to be eligible for the partner visa. Apart from that I don't think it matters too much

LOL ... and there was me thinking an age difference of 40 years

Coming from a High Risk country you will be under the microscope more than being from a Low Risk country. Sucks, but it's the way it is man. Just make sure you include lots of info in your application to prove the relationship is "genuine and continuing" and that you have actually met in person face to face.

My fiance has been waiting for her PMV for 3.5 months now, every day that goes past is like sticking a dagger into your heart a little bit more. The hardest thing is not knowing exactly when it will be granted. So be prepared for a lot of grief

Good luck with your application!

Thanks so much , i think theres nothing to worry about according to you experience, we could only afford to spent 6 weeks and 5 days together in a 4 years relationship and i was worried that the dept will look into that.
But for now i will have to put my mind at rest.
Thanks

Thanks man,
yeah just worried about the little age diffrent but i think i have noithing to be worried about now due to you to your experience.
We have been together for 4 years now only could spent 6 weeks and 5 days together out of the 4 years and i was worried about that too but i think i should put my mind at rest now.
Yeah waiting for visa is not fun, just cant imagine everyday checking mails and phone if there will be call from the case officer.
Its not really easy.
I hope that everything will comes out well.
And i wish you and your fiancee good luck in your application too.
thanks so much.

You are welcome

6 weeks and 5 days in a 4 year relationship ohhh it is not much time together.

My partner and i have been 12 weeks together in a 2 year 6 month relationship.

My female partner is 3 years and 3 months older than me.I think it shouldn't be a problem... But the CO asked my partner about the age gap.

It's hard to miss birthdays, christmas, anniversaries and valentines day etc.

The wait will be worth it in the end.

Thanks a lot buddy

Any further questions you will have, I'll do my best to answer them.
