I am heading out initially for 1 year, however the plan ois to leave this open so that if I wanted to stay on for longer I could do, but 1 year will be the minimum.
I have a house in the UK that I will rent for the duration that I will be away and I have a mortgage on that house. I will be visiting the UK approximately every 2 months, I would expect half of these visits (3 visits) would be for pleasure and the other half would be for work (catch up on product development etc...)
My partner will be moving out with me on the same visa and will be applying for a work permit seperately, we have no children. My parents will still remain in the UK.
It is expected that I will return to the UK company after leaving the US but right now i don't know when that would be.
I hope that is enough information.
