  1. I had a B2 visa and applied for an L2 last year. I am British and had a trip back home planned anyway so I went to London. It was all very smooth - I had my interview on the Friday and I picked up my passport from Heathrow the following Thursday so just under a week. This was end June/start July so it could be a busy time for them too. From my research I could file a change of status form whilst living in the US in order to get my L2 visa without going out of the country. However I know to then come back into the country I would need to visit an embassy to get the sticker in my passport. Not sure if you could do this too?
  2. I did the b2 cohabit visa thing for 6 months and, whilst it meant we could be together, I honestly found it the hardest 6 months of my life. Moving to a new country where you don't know anyone, you're not able to work and your partner is out at work all day makes for a very lonely time. You'd think that not working would be amazing but it quickly gets boring, especially when you have no one to share it with. After we got married I actually ended up going back to the UK to pick up some temp work for a couple of months whilst waiting for my EAD to come through as I was going insane. Just get married, I know it's not that romantic but working has made a HUGE difference to my experience out here. If you move and one of you isn't happy then it will be a big strain on your relationship.
  3. Hi all, My husband has an L1 visa and I have an L2. We often travel separately and I have entered the US on three occasions (once via air and twice driving across the Canadian border) with photocopies of both the I-129S and blanket petition and had no problems. However, last week when I flew into Boston the Immigration Officer was irate that I didn't have the originals and said that next time I'd be "sent downstairs". He threw the copies back at me telling me that they are useless as the originals have security features (I've since looked at the original I-129S and it just looks like a standard piece of paper to me?). My husband and I have only ever had one original stamped I-129S. Does anyone know how to go about getting a second one? If not my husband and I will always have to travel together which isn't very realistic for us. Thanks!
