ECO-Friendly, on several occasions, have had several applicants whose age difference were more than twenty (20), even around thirty (30) to forty (40) years but the application was not affected by the age disparity.
The most important thing to consider whenever filing an application where there is a big age gap between the applicant for the UK Spouse Visa or UK Fiancée Visa from the Philippines and the British sponsor is that they should provide significant and substantial proof to show the legitimacy of their relationship in order to satisfy the Entry Clearance Officer (ECO) that the relationship between the two is genuine and legitimate.
ECO-Friendly, however, stresses that the applicant for the UK Spouse Visa or UK Fiancée Visa from the Philippines and the British sponsor should be aware that if the only basis for the relationship of the partners is their marriage to each other and no other documents to support their relationship is attached with the application, the application will more likely be decided unfavorably.
In short, if the only proof of the couple’s relationship is a Marriage Certificate duly issued by the appropriate government agency where the marriage was celebrated, however valid this document may be, without any other supplementary evidence to support the alleged relation of the UK Spouse Visa or UK Fiancée Visa applicant with the British sponsor, the application will automatically be denied.
Past, present and even future interactions and communications between the applicant from the Philippines and her British boyfriend, partner or spouse, as well as other applicable and relevant documents are very crucial evidence, which will work to verify the connection between the UK Spouse Visa or UK Fiancée Visa applicant and the British sponsor.
