Moving to USA/Illinois
 
Hi
My name is Paul,, I work professionally as The Celtic Seer, a Professional Psychic I met the most wonderful person two years ago and am now looking at Moving to USA to be with her.
Any help and advice on pitfalls and hold ups to this would be helpful.
I'm also looking to ship my property, a load of goods already boxed up, Do I need to List every item, What is the best company to use, what are time constraints, and what documentation do I actually need to go about doing this!!
Thank you so much for any help you can give

Hi Paul! Good luck with your move. Hey are you two getting married? Do you have a visa already in hand?

Might want to start in the Marriage Based Visa forum. I'm sure you'll get a lot of information there... Good luck!

Though surely, as a psychic, you know all the answers to these questions already.....

Hi Paul,

The biggest pitfall is not doing one's research properly. If you're the sort of person who pays attention to detail and reads instructions carefully things should be straightforward. If you're not....well, now's a good time to start!

What shipment method to use depends a lot on how much stuff you are bringing. Some people whittle their essential belongings down to a few boxes and bags. They mail the boxes via FedEx, UPS or the royal mail and bring the bags on the airplane with them. My DH and I shipped about 450 cubic feet of stuff via boat, which was about 200 small-to-medium boxes, two large boxes, some instrument cases and a bunk bed set sans mattresses. Others ship the entire contents of their house, complete with furniture, and some look into shipping cars! If you use an sea-based shipping method plan on being without your stuff for at least 2 or 3 months. A good shipping company will walk you through the paperwork requirements. Keep copies of everything. You will not be able to have the stuff arrive in the US before you arrive there yourself, for customs reasons. You don't need to list EVERY item (ie the title of every book and DVD, the number of socks you are bringing) but you will need to give a reasonable representation of what is in the boxes (ie "books", "clothes", "guitar" etc.)

Since the K-1 will take you the better part of a year to learn about and complete, you will probably be better off spending your time now learning about that. You'll have plenty of down time in between the steps of that application to learn about things like shipping.

Check out the pinned topics in the marriage based visa forum: http://britishexpats.com/forum/forumdisplay.php?f=35

That is exactly what I was thinking... get the visa process going first then think about packing etc. It took 8 months from me first applying to having the K1 visa in my passport.

Good luck with your marriage. I do have one question; do you see yourself as a professional entertainer, or do you genuinely believe you have some supernatural ability? Not going to be snarky - I just wondered.
