Re: Maintaining a UK mobile number while in the US long term

Thanks kindly all - having contacted them, they're giving me two months grace period which alleviates the urgency. They will be contacting me to ask me for proof that I am resident in the UK though,...

Thank you again! Sadly not the news I was looking for, but it's much appreciated.

Thanks Rete, very helpful!

Re: Recommendation Wanted: Immigration attorney (for phone appointment only at this s

Thank you - and no I have no intention to stay in the US immediately if we marry while I'm there under VWP, I would leave within a week and start CR-1 process immediately. And yes, a variation of...

Re: Advice Wanted: Choice of Marriage Visa

Thank you again! Is there anywhere to get official stats on visa wait times? Or is that just based off word-of-mouth experience?
