Hi,

I'm married to a US citizen (8 months now) ) and we are currently living in the UK. I have a couple of basic questions.

I know the VISA process can take several months but can anyone help with the following:

If my application for a VISA is successful, is there a time period for being able to use the VISA (is it only valid for entry to the US on a specific date)?

If we changed our mind about moving and wanted to postpone for a few months, would that cause any problems?

Anyone know of any books that might be of help?

finally

Anyone know of a good Recruitment Agency for the Tampa area?

Thanks in advance

Brian

If you and your wife are both living in the UK, you can do Direct Consular Filing, a
process that only take a few months.
http://www.mindspring.com/~docsteen/...o/visainfo.htm see this website - accept
the disclaimer and go to the section called DCF choose your Visa. lots of helpful
information on what you will need to do. Take Care. Shelley

If all goes well, at your consular immigrant visa interview, you will receive an
immigrant visa, a fat sealed manila envelope. This is valid for 6 months. You have 6
months in which to enter the U.S. and become a permanent resident.

As long as you use the visa before it expires, you will be
O.K. You could actually enter the U.S. and become a permanent resident, and return
to the U.K. to wrap up loose ends for awhile. You should not be absent from the
U.S. for more than 6 months without taking up truly permanent resident.

The family-based immigration websites are pretty good.
