  • Our Story
    I met my British husband online in early 2011. We began a friendship that became much more over the summer and finally were together in England in November of 2011. We became engaged quite quickly after that and he visited me in America for Christmas and New Years going into 2012. Before we got married, we decided to move together to back to England for the sake of his two young children (from a previous marriage). I obtained a Fiancee' Visa and we got married in August of 2012. I then applied for a spousal visa that same month, and received it in Feb of 2013.

    In January, however, some medical complications arose with myself and being away from my family became very hard for me. We both decided that the best thing to do was go back to America and make sure his two children could come over yearly, or more. My husband is a severe dyslexic with short term memory loss, which presents problems when applying for things, as I tend to have to do most of the writing/filing since he cannot remember dates/names/locations and cannot read.

    We filed for IR-1/CR-1 visa via DCF in London, England.
