Default I'd Really Appreciate your help :)

Hi

My names alex and im currently a royal marine, i have a long term girlfriend in California and as ive decided to leave the military im trying to move and be with her. My contract with the military finishes in 9 months and the only qualifications i have are of a masters diploma in personal training and a few A-levels.

Im guessing that there are many situations on here that are very similar but im finding it genuinly really difficult to sort the process out, i have a few days work experience lined up with a gym in March however ive heard that its unlikely that people get sponsored as im not a university graduate.

Once again id really appreciate any advice.

Thankyou

I'll cut to the chase: get married. It is currently your only viable option of getting to the US, as all the others require either a university degree or a lot of money.

Get married, or she moves to the UK, if we're being honestly blunt about your chances.

Unless you fancy doing a degree in the US.

You cannot work...even for a few days...without the appropriate visa. Take a read of this...if you fit into any of the categories...then you just may have a chance of living and working in the US.

He did not say it was in the US.

Time to propose.
