Hello everyone!!! Glad to be a part of these forums as i hope we can all help each other out. My name is Max and my wife is Anna, i'm from the UK and is married Anna from the USA.

We are the very start of the journey of endless paperwork filing, endless waiting and endless other things we know nothing about.

So basically, we are here because I, Max, want to be able to move to US. We have our I-130 form, but we would love it if you kind folks could give us the best ways to start off and everything like that as after calling the US Embassy in London and getting the most vague answers, we are clueless as to where to start.

I know this thing is asked by everyone that is new to the forums, but its nice to know that we're all in the same boat and Anna and I arent just floating about in the dark alone.

Thank you to Everyone!!!

Welcome Aboard !

Two important sections to review, IMO -

1. Guides Section - instructions on how to fill out the forms

2. Portal Section - timeline data for yer embassy, posts from others homed to yer embassy, member list of those homed to yer embassy..

When I first joined, I read as much as I could, practiced filling out the forms, then took some big paper, make flowcharts with green crayon, also making copious notes , pen to paper.

If I write something, I usually remember it. Others remember what they read, as well.

IMO, for DIY immigration stuff - reading is important.


Sometimes my language usage seems confusing - please feel free to 'read it twice', just in case !
Ya know, you can find the answer to your question with the advanced search tool, when using a PC? Ditch the handphone, come back later on a PC, and try again.

Then ask questions about anything you don't understand.

That's really the easiest way to go.
