Smile Moving from the UK to the USA

Do we submit the I-130 and the G-325 together or just the I-30? or can anyone tell us if i can get a permit or visa whilst my application is being processed? i am married to a US citizen.

What? She's married to a USC and is asking about moving from the UK to the US. Seems like the right forum to me!

Submit the I-130 and 2x G-325 one for you and one for your spouse.

In actuallity you are applying for a visa in the end not your spouse, the I130 is asking permission for your usc spouse for you to apply 5-6 months down the line, but, but you can visit under the visa waiver if elligable, but can not remain beyond a 90 day limit until you are approved and have visa in hand.

We used the Wiki link at the top, very helpful. You will eventually be applying for the CR-1 visa

Where are you both currently living?

The I-130 instructions are very clear on what to include, so that should answer your initial question. Go to www.uscis.com, Forms, I-130.

You don't need a special permit or visa in the meantime, you just visit the USA as a tourist as you did before, while the Immigrant Visa process is going on.

It was in the Canada one, I drew it to the mods attention , they kindly moved it. I posted so that the OP could start a new thread if they got to it before the mods.

Just trying to be helpful

Your USC spouse can remain in the US indefinitely. You, however, are still limited to the 90 days of the VWP.

You can stay in the USA the length of time as you normally would as a tourist, depending on how you are traveling to the USA (VWP or B-2 visa).
