Karen.. is an unknown quantity at this point
Default Hello.....!!

Hi all! I've been doing a few searches on moving to the US and it keeps bringing me to this site so figured I might as well join!

My name's Karen and I hold duel UK/US citizenship. Both myself and my husband are police officers and in the current climate we're having thoughts about moving across the pond. We went through the process 3 1/2 years ago and dh and kids got green cards and we went over after taking career breaks. Bottled leaving the UK though so spent 7 months travelling around seeing family.

Not sure if I'd ever do it but looking at getting a few opinions! Don't know if I could ever leave my Mum!

Hello! The first thing to establish is whether the green cards are still valid. They are dependent on actually living in USA - hence Permanent Resident Card - it's real name. Do you know where you stand there?

No they've expired. We'd have to start the whole process again.

That's a shame. So I guess you know the process. Their GC were based on your US citizenship, correct?

What is it you want to ask? It might be best to post a question in a specific forum to get more responses than just me

Lol Rich! I'll put a post in another forum but have been reading along for now.

Yes, I know the process. Tbh I don't know if we'd do it but it's good to read about other people's experiences!

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.
