Where Do I Start My Journey

Hi Everyone

Joined vj about a week ago. Have been trying to navigate through all the info here and finding it a little overwhelming. I am a Canadian with an American boyfriend. (Sounds weird saying that when I'm 50 and he's 59) This is my situation. My husband (ex) and I are snowbirds. We have a mobile home in Florida. Have been going there for the last 5 years. We split up and I started going out with our neighbor, who we have been friends with for the 5 years we have been going to Florida. I filed for divorce (2nd one) and now would like to marry my boyfriend. He doesn't make enough to sponsor me. Consulted (by phone) an immigration lawyer in Florida and he said I shouldn't go with a K-1, that it would be easier to just say I Love Florida and have decided I want to live there. I don't want to lie at the border when I cross. I just want the easiest way possible for us to be together. He doesn't want to move to Canada. We are not getting any younger and don't want to spend 6 months apart every year. He has been my best friend for the last 5 years. I am back in Canada now and miss him terribly.I will be going to visit him for a week in July and then will be returning to Florida for 6 months in October. I work for the 6 months I am in Canada so I can afford to go to Florida for 6 months. I do not own any property in Canada and have no other source of income. I had a charge when I was 18 and was given a suspended sentence. I was also stopped at the border around 20 years ago (returning to Canada) for undeclared merchandise ($60.00 of children's clothing) and made to pay a fine. Don't know if this has any bearing in becoming a US citizen. Just wondered if anyone had a similar circumstance or any thoughts on what way to proceed from here. I would appreciate hearing from you

Thanks, Corri

“...Isn't it splendid to think of all the things there are to find out about? It just makes me feel glad to be alive--it's such an interesting world. It wouldn't be half so interesting if we knew all about everything, would it? There'd be no scope for imagination then, would there?”
