Help! My 82 year-old dad wants to marry this 35 year-old woman from South Asia he met a few months ago while traveling.

My dad is 82, a US citizen, has been here since he was 18. He recently went to visit family in his birth country for a few months after my mom passed away. While he was there, he met this 35-year old young mother, who badly wants to come to the US and will do anything.

My dad is back home in the US now, but is thinking about marrying her! He’d like to bring her here on a fiancĂ© visa (as a “trial” run according to him). I’ve tried to talk some sense into him, informing him about scams and possible issues he may face bringing her here (and her two young children). I’m beyond upset that my dad would consider this. He has a nice house and a decent pension.

It’s very obvious this lady wants to escape her poverty-stricken life, is using him to come to the US and mooch off of him. He told my sister that this lady is thinking long term because she wants his help to pay for her children’s’ college, etc. - ugh.

He believes everything will be okay, that this lady is from the village and naive and wouldn’t do anything wrong. I’m an attorney. I know these stories usually don’t go as planned. I’ve been trying to talk some sense into my dad, but he gets very angry and defensive and will never listen to me.

He’s not incapacitated, but his memory is not as sharp, he is forgetful, and is not making sound decisions. The problem is he is vehemently stubborn and will almost never listen to any of his daughters despite our knowledge & education.

Anyone familiar with immigration law, is there anyway to show this is more of a sham on her end?

NVC Case FE Review note

Hi everyone, my family and I are under the F3 category and we just received a notice from NVC that our documents have been approved and that we are Documentarily Qualified. My only concern is this message that we received today in addition to the acceptance: ​ " [Name of petitioner] does not meet the minimum income requirement to sponsor the intending immigrants for this case. The consular officer will make a decision regarding this requirement at the time of the interview. For more information, please visit . To avoid delays, an additional Affidavit of Support Form I-864 for a joint sponsor may be submitted." ​ We already have a petitioner and a household sponsor (the household sponsor's income is above the required level), but still unsure why we received this. Has anyone else received this message? All of our documents say "Approved" on NVC. Does this mean we have to find another sponsor? Can we show the consular officer our
