[b]Jan 17th 2008. had to go to London twice! Once for medical which was a walk from Euston Station. Then back again a week later to the embassy which was an quick and painless visit. I went in at 9am and was out bt 10.20am.
[b]Feb 20th. Flew to Atlanta and arranged the marriage doc and date and we were married on the 1st March.
[b]April 20th: I had to take my Geogia driving test (You have to have a Ga license after residing there for 90 days) BUT the license expiry date was the same date as my Fiance visa WOULD have expired IF I hadn't married!...Aaaargh! AND they took my UK license off me! (What if I go to the UK and need to drive?)
[b]July: Went for my AOS appointment (fingerprinting, iris scan and simple form filling. 1 hour. I asked if they would give me a letter for the drivers license dept to prove I was married and therefore get my license renewed.... NO!
So, having bought a much needed truck, I was forced to risk driving without either my UK, or Georgia license for 3 months until I finally got my Permanent Residence card! I also got my Employment card.
