Default Met The Girl Of My Dreams - But Shes American!

Hello all, and im pleased to join BE.com

The names Luke, and ive been dating the women of my dreams for the last year. Minor issues, she lives in South Carolina... We've talked about marriage, and she knows that I want to marry her and she wants to marry me.

Minor problem, the US immigration system. Looking for advice and relating my story of application for a K1 visa to other people, its a confusing system ...

Anyway, hello!

Hi and welcome to the site,

We've got loads and loads of members who have fallen in love with someone from foreign parts So you are amongst kindred spirits. Hop on over to the USA forums and say hi. We've also got a really great wiki that you may find very useful.

Hello there and welcome. I'm sorry I can't help you with questions regarding the K1 visa but there are plenty of people in the US Marriage Based Visa Forum that can. Good luck.

Do you really - I mean REALLY - want to live in South Carolina?

NB: It will be much easier - immigration-wise - for her to move to the UK.

Hi Civil servant

I'm a 'not so civil servant' myself! I work for the DWP here but only for another two weeks, then I'm off to Charleston SC as soon as possible. I followed the IR-1 immigration route and just got my visa last thursday
If there are any questions I can help with, please feel free to drop me a line. Good luck!

Hi Civilservant! I like your attitude, I'm sure you will do fine over here. Go with your eyes wide open and expect differences, for sure. And above all do a lot of reading on this site. Some people just can't handle the life over here, its not their cup of tea. And some do absolutely fine! I hope all goes well for you and your relationship, remember it will be an adventure you'll never forget.
