Smile Family moving to Chicago from Uk with Kids

Hi All,

This is my first post on here so please be gentle with me!

I am in the process of moving to Chicago with work. My husband and three kids will be coming with me. L1 Visa Application has just been sent off so any idea on how long this will take would be great!

I am also lookign for ideas on who is the best shipping agent to use for quality and price. IF anyone could give me some ideas on their experiences that would be really helpful.

I am sure I will have loads more questions, but these will do to start off with

Hi there and welcome to the forum.

If you'd be kind enough, will you post your L1 query in the USA immi forum here, and the shipping agent question in the main USA forum here.

Thanks for posting in the welcome inn first though.

Enjoy B.E.

Welcome to BE and good luck!

The visa, can be a couple of weeks to a few months, depends on if they went for premium processing or not and all the details.

As for movers, well there's been a few threads, but not for Chicago. Wiki has good general info, but really, it'll all depend on who gets sub-contracted to the local end. So get quotes from as many places as you can and check out who does the US end of things

Good luck.

Thanks Bob, we haven't gone for Premium Processing so I will probably work on the worse case scenario of a few months!

Thanks again

Hello and a big welcome to BE.

Excellent information can be found in the BE Wiki, not forgetting the Living and Moving Abroad forum that will help you, another set of great help is the permanent threads at the TOP of each forum, they are very pertinent to that particular forum and makes sensible reading.

Moderators deal with any problems that arise such as inappropriate posts, spammers etc, you will find their names at the bottom right hand side of each forum's index in bold font.

Please contact me if I can give you any further help.

Hello DanEmWill! Welcome to the US in advance.

My mother came into Chicago her first time to the US. She was wearing a heavy sweater.

When she landed it was 97 degrees
