Hello! So happy to have found this awesome group of knowledgeable folks
My name is Courtney and I am an American engaged to an amazing British Citizen, Chris. We met and fell in love in a FB group in September 2015 and have been in a LDR ever since. We met in person Jan 2016 when he flew over for 2 weeks. I went to England (for the first time ever with my first passport) in June 2016 for 3 weeks. He came back to US in September 2016 to visit for 2 weeks. I just went to visit him in January 2017 for 3 weeks.
I have been reading for several months on government site and on here about visas and such and was trying to figure out the easiest and least costly way of getting married and moving. I am moving to UK to be with him once we are married. We have decided that it will be the easiest for him to come here, get married, and me apply for spousal visa to move over since I will need to work as soon as I'm allowed. I currently live in North Carolina and have been waiting on my divorce to be final before we could start moving forward with all of the legal stuff. (In NC you have to be separated for a year before divorce granted. It has been 18 months) Yesterday my divorce was final! Yay! Chris booked his ticket to come here at the end of April and we will get married and apply for Spousal Visa while he is here. Seems as though we qualify for the category A requirements for me to move there. I just wanted to introduce myself and say Hi! Thank you in advance for any advice
