Default Brit looking to move to SD

Hi,
Just a quick hello.
I'm going to the states and getting engaged to my girlfriend in Sth Dakota at christmas and hope you guys can then give some valuable guidance on how to gain residency there for us to marry.

I know there's the Fiance or Spouses visa but don't know which to go for.
Would we be better off getting married first and then applying for a spouses visa or is the fiances visa the way to go.

Hello there and welcome to BE.

There are a few BE'ers in the SD area and even more in the larger Ca area. Post any visa questions you have regarding your engagement/marriage in this forum http://britishexpats.com/forum/forumdisplay.php?f=35. We also have a US forum for questions about everyday life in the US and the Trailer Park for general US chit chat.

Welcome to BE

As already mentioned, the marriage based visa section is a wealth of knowledge, and also the wiki which has loads of info about visas but also on life in the US and things to be aware of
