Hi there, thank you for the reply, I am not currently married to my partner, he is an American citizen living in Ohio, I currently live in Essex, UK. We have been in a relationship for two years now and have made trips back and forth across the Atlantic which, as I am sure you can imagine, is expensive and frustrating every time we have to say goodbye.
We have made the decision to take the relationship further and it would me that I would need to reloate there as he has a career and his own home which he owns.
We are not currently married and we are wondering if it would make it easier to get into the United States if we are married or to go as a fiance and then make plans to marry once we are there.
As we are both new to this and haven't the first idea what is actually involved in the process we would appreciate any help or advice that you could offer and point us in the right direction of where to apply etc.
Look forward to hearing from you.
Hi Ely We would definitely be willing to get married and he is prepared to sponsor me. He is finance director of a healthcare company and has the means to sponsor me. I would want to work over there at some point to keep independence but we don't know how to go about this.
Well we are not sure the best way to proceed. Does it make it easier to marry outside the USA? Also how does he go about sponsoring me? I take it that means he would be financially responsible for me? We just want to do whatever it takes. We just want to make sure we don't do anything that might hinder the process. Thank you. Jeannie.
