Plankton is an unknown quantity at this point
Default Hi All

Hi Everyone.

We are looking at moving to Texas as a family. My wife and son are both Dual US/UK citizens and I am English.

We almost got my visa 18 months ago but with the recession we put it on hold. Hopefully I will just need the medical again and the interview.

My main concern is leaving my daughter who is 15 behind, from my first marrage. So any advice on this and Texas would be greatly appreciated.

Great site as well.

Cheers

Hello there and welcome to BE.

We have several members located in Texas. Below is a link to the US forums...may I suggest you repost your question regarding your daughter in there.

Hi Plankton, welcome aboard.

You've got a couple of items in there that are time sensitive.. like getting your own visa restarted (there's a time limit).
Jump over to the marriage-based visa forum & you'll get lots of info!

Welcome to BE, hope you can get your visa sorted and finished this time. I cannot imagine how difficult it will be for you leaving your daughter, but hopefuly she can visit you for holidays, good luck

Thanks for your reply. I am from Stockport well Gatley.

Yes it will be hard to leave her but she will be 16 and I cannot keep putting my life on hold.

I lived in Gatley for a few months...I also lived in Cheadle Hulme. There's a few folk around here from the Stockport/Manchester area.
