9 Months to Go...



Today is exactly 9 months until Dan and I get married and I am more excited by the minute. Even as I sit in my home in Portland, OR and he is miles and miles away in England as we await our visa, I have never been more sure of anything in my life. Love you baby!

ps - I just realized that the title of this post sounds like I am preggers. Haha - sorry Mom!

  4. I'm responding to your comment on cozyintexas - Immigration is so much tougher these days when I first moved here from London 30 years ago. I started the process in Los Angeles and then finished it when we moved to Texas. It's time consuming more than anything. He will need to get a "green card" and work permit first. In those days they stamped your passport with a work visa while you were waiting but I think it's not that simple now. What they are mainly looking for is to make sure it's not a marriage of convenience so take wedding pictures with you when you interview. For the citizenship, they give you 100 questions to learn the answers to - these are ones most citizens don't know. If I remember correctly there were medical exams (unfortunately in a seedy part of LA) and they video taped the interview. I had a "green" card for a number of years before finalizing the citizenship part which I don't think was too difficult. I was living with a cousin at the time and he had to fill out forms to say he would be responsible for me financially and I agreed not to apply for any government help for at least a two year period. You are required to denounce your citizenship with another country but England allows dual citizenship so he can keep his British Passport up to date. He won't have to do this if he just keeps the "green card". Hope this helps - good luck and thanks for stopping by my blog.
