PLEASE HELP!

I am a sonographer from the UK with a post grad diploma in medical ultrasound and a BSc(hons) degree in diagnostic radiography.

I have a daughter and a partner but we are not married. We are looking to move to Florida next year-2013 and I was wondering if anyone could tell me which kind of visa would be best for our situation. Ideally we need a visa so that both my partner and I work. Does it make much of a difference that we are not married? From what iv seen so far im guessing i would need some type of work visa with a contract of employment with a company that is happy to help sponsor me. But i dont think this would allow my partner to work?!

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You would need to find a company that would demonstrate a need for your skills. That employer would file a petition on your behalf. Your child could come along. Your partner would have to find their own way. A spouse would be able to join you.

Partner has to apply for own visa

YOu do not mention what country he/she is from.

That could be very important.

As the others have said, there is no partner visa. I suggest you contact some medical recruitment companies state side to see if there is demand for someone like you.

He would need to get his own, even if you married his one would not allow work.

No it's a male (heterosexual relationship)....it just sounded better than boyfriend at my age lol.

He is a from the uk. We are planning on getting married at some point anyway so that is obviously an option if it would help but one of you said it wouldnt, another suggested it might?!

He is a policeman over here but i dont think he necessarily wants to convert that to the usa.

Thanks for your help

If you got a H1 he would get a H4 if married.

But H4 does not allow work.

Not really important.

He can get a H4 later, as soon as you are married.

No harm an employer starting now on the H1 for you.

First of all your main question has to be if there is work in your field. To me sounds like you would need an employment with a hospital you need to find if there is a hospital that would be filling to file for your employment visa.

I personally know some ppl in same field and they being USC is very difficult to find the job, medical and healthcare are cutting budgets and jobs.

So before you make your plans you need to make sure some place is willing to hire you and file for your employment visa.
