Default UK-US Immigration-Help please!

Hi,

I'm new here & was looking for some information on possible immigration from the UK to the US.

I'm currently a student in the UK on a Law degree (just about to begin my 2nd year) & my fiance is a FT employed civil servant. He is experienced in IT but has no formal qualifications and we wondered if a skilled worker employment based visa would be suitable for him? (http://www.usembassy.org.uk/cons_new...edworkers.html)
We both are UK passport holders & would both like to emigrate.

I'm wondering if anyone can advise on what visa would be suitable to allow us both permanant US residency?

Thanks
H-L.

I really don't understand?

I've realised now I cant move to the US to study law without a degree anyway, so am looking at moving over and doing a foreign Lawyer program in 2 years.

Check out Pulaski's article (under 'Articles'), and go to the uscis website for more information.

Unless you want to study in the US - and have the very considerable means required to do so - you are unlikely to move to the US any time soon.

Thanks

I was afraid it'd come back as a negative response. I think it would be best to complete my 1stdegree here and move over to do a transfer course to allow application to US Bar.

Welcome to BE.

And your probably SOL, legal work, you'd have to re qualify, plus no experience will be a killer, and IT, well without any uni, would need 12 years experience to get an H1B which an employer wouldn't be able to apply for till next April for an Oct start, and they are rather expensive now so would need rather a good skill set. Civil service is out, usually have to be a citizen, or at the very least already a LPR.

If the OP wants to ask further questions about immigration to the US, he should post in one of the US immigration related forums that appear on BE.

I'm closing this thread.
