Filing I-129F

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi all

Like someone in another post, I've been lurking here for a few weeks, gathering as much information for us as I can :D We finally posted our application pack off yesterday and are settling down for the long wait.

The short story is that we have been together nearly 2 years, have 10 visits between us in the last 18 months (UK/USA). He came over to the UK 2 weeks ago to propose (I accepted!) and we decided to get the process started.

I can't tell you how reassuring some of the experiences here have been to read. We expect there to be obstacles, in planning to move from the UK to the USA I am prepared to jump through whatever hoops there are. We just want to be together.

Thanks for reading :)

Shezita
