I'm the USC who's waiting for husband's DCF I-130 in London. Our official filing date is 24 April. And we're still waiting... and waiting... and waiting...

I am getting seriously impatient and really depressed and emtional. I just want to go home already!

My life feels like its on a bit of a stand still at the moment and I really just want to get on with it. It's really frustrating!

Does anyone else feel like this?
So you are currently (wherever) living with your hisband? You filed in April and you're fed up of waiting. Do you know how long a lot of people on here spent apart from their fiancee's / spouses before they had the 'luxury' of living together?

I have lived without my husband... for months in the past. In fact about a week after we got married I had to go back to the US for 2 months for business. So I do know how hard it is to go through the distance. And that's why I really don't want to move out before him even though I want to get this show on the road.

Just for clarification, I live in the UK now. Have done for about 2 1/2 years.

2 Months? Yawn. Try a year (and thats just the next trip, not the move)

My fiance and I were apart for 14 months while going through the K-1 process to bring him here. Granted, we were not yet married and had never lived together, so maybe that made it easier.

Now that he's been in the USA for 8 years, we still "live apart" most of the time, as our home is in Phoenix but he spends 3 or 4 weeks at a time in Los Angeles working onsite for his clients. We spend one long weekend a month together, plus a longer vacation away somewhere now and then.

It works for us!

Might be a stupid question but have you considered getting your British Citizenship before you move back to the US?

My application took 18 Months. We started the paperwork in November 1994 and I was authorised in March of 1996.

Then don't waste them! You are (mostly) with the one you love in a country with endless quantities of things to do and learn and see. You do have to wait - but as waiters go, you aren't in that bad a situation.

Sooo your living with your husband and waiting? That's a piece of cake, try being 4,000 miles away from your husband and waiting for 9 months counting (will be 17-18 by the time he moves here).

I bet the OP was wishing she hadn't said anything now...


Waiting is hard whatever it is for, and frustrating, and we all need to vent sometimes

Just try and make the most of life right now, it will all happen eventually
