Default Hey :) Hey :) UK to USA

My husband (American citizen) and i (UK citizen) are currently applying for the CR-1 visa via DCF. The I-130 is in with a filing date of May 18th.

We are also getting ready to do our daughters Consular Report of Birth Abroad and get her US passport and SSN etc.

We would ideally like to be in the US by Christmas but we'll see!

So... Here to give and get advice and share the journey with others

Hi Holly,

Welcome to BE and congrats on your upcoming move to the US. I'm sure your head is spinning with all the paperwork and moving arrangements.

I hope you enjoy your time here and please don't be afraid to give me a shout if you get stuck on anything.

Welcome to BE and good luck!

It'll be a close thing, IR/CR visa takes around 8-10 months, but it might be doable

Good luck with it!

Thanks everyone! Bob, from current timelines, DCF is taking about 6 months so im remaining hopeful for now. We're not on a strict time limit though so its more about how long our patience holds out :P

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.

WELCOME! I married a USA citizen and I am a UK citizen, it is expensive at the start, but stick with it, it isn't as complicated as you first think
I moved here in November and was acceoted in February (just saying) seriously don't worry
