Default Want To Marry Us Man:

PLEASE PLEASE HELP US! Im a British lady with sole parental responsibility of 2 young children. I wish to marry a USC. I am going to buy a home for us to live in in America soon. When would be the best time for us to marry. We almost married last time I visited and I am due to visit again soon. Although we dont plan to marry on my next visit there is a possibility that we could. If we do, must we then file for change of status from tourist visa to whatever?? and must the children and I then stay in USA until the paperwork is finished with - or must we return to UK. If we do return to UK once we have filed that paperwork, will anything prevent us from re-visiting during the timespan between that and the finalisation of the paperwork. Does it make a difference if I am pregnant with the USC's child?
DESPERATE FOR HELP - PLEASE

You have a rather complicated situation especially with the children. I would not encourage you to marry under these circumstances. You really should go through the K1 fiancee' visa process. It'll take a few months, but at least it will all be above board and legit and save you some real problems in the future. Your biggest complication would be the father of your children and obtaining his consent to move them to the US.....

THANK YOU FOR RESPONDING: I have double-checked with my solicitor today and have been informed for the second time that the father of my children has no parental responsibility. I am allowed to move to wherever I wish and to take my children WITHOUT his consent. You are the second person to suggest that their father might be a problem. Am I to take it that the USA authorities will seek his permission even though UK law states that I am allowed to take my children wherever I wish?

Unfortunately you are getting a bit out of my depth, experience-wise. Your question might be better answered on the alt.visa.us.marriage-based usenet group. There are a # of very knowledgeable people there.......
