I really like Katy a lot - its a nice place to live. I look forward to hopefully meeting up with you and your family when you move :) Since Ive been coming to forums like this I've found quite a few people in Houston and a few specifically in Katy - it looks like we'll all be in good company! Lets hope the Brits keep coming :)

Good luck on your forthcoming Immigration. Id be happy to help if I can :)

UPDATE!!

Mom sent Martin an email today to say that his PERMANENT RESIDENT CARD HAS ARRIVED!! Thats like - a full 8 months earlier than expected! So it took 17 days!!!

Either this is true and Im totally shocked or my mom is spazzing and its actually his social security card lol.

Ok, mom's gotten back to me about the info on Mart's green card. Here we go:

Admittance Category: CR1
Expiration Date: 02.09.2006 (US Stylie)

So what now?

Nothing really, the only difference now is filing to remove conditions 90 days prior to the expiration date (I assume you'll be back in the States by then)..it's no biggie, just more paperwork and another $140. Your husband still remains a legal resident throughout the whole process with rights to work and travel. The only difference now is if your husband's intentions were to become a dual citizen he'd have to wait until those conditions were removed before he could start the naturalization process.

Very interesting and helpful thread guys - thanks. Can I ask something to Celtic to the Core? I have been married coming up to 8 years, resident 2 years in USA and then returned here, when we get status, will I be given a non-conditional stamp? and will I still need to wait long to be able to work?

Thanks

You should be New-Dawn, the requirement for unconditional is being married for two years or longer at the time of application so I would think that you're well over that benchmark and yes ..once you enter the U.S and everything has been approved in London you will have  immediate rights to work and travel. Shortly after you enter, your I-551 (Green Card) will be mailed to you. You'll give the INS agent a package upon landing and he (or she ;D) will put an I-551 stamp in your passport and in your case it should also be noted IR-1 (Immediate Relative), this enables you to seek immediate employment until the actual card arrives.

Thanks for that CthC  :)

No excuse for a decent "settling in" ( read: shopping) period then  :'(
