Hi, we have some questions on DCF in London (we've visited doc steen's)-

I'm a US citizen and my fiance is Belgian but working and living in London the last 2 years. We will marry shortly and am interested in DCF in London for him as I may be traveling soon to London for a fellowship for some months.

Does anyone have recent experience with DCF in London or can help us with the following?

1. How many months is DCF in London likely to take? (I need to know how many months of fellowship to negotiate for).

2. What paperwork will the US consulate need to establish that I am residing in the UK (lease? notification of fellowship? work permit?)

3. What paperwork will the US consulate need to establish that my spouse resides in the UK (proof of employment?)

4. While we are doing direct consular filing, will I or my spouse be able to travel (e.g. to the US)?

5. Do we need to talk to an immigration lawyer in the UK to help us file the paperwork?

We really appreciate everyone's help on this. Thanks in advance.
