Long time lurker, first time poster to this sub.
I (UK citizen) proposed to my girlfriend (US citizen) after a long time of long distance and she stupidly said yes!
I’m currently in the states until early February, our plan is to start the process of the fiancé visa when I return to the UK.
We have decided to seek some information on the process ahead with a immigration lawyer in the next few days. I was just wondering if anyone could shed any light on their personal experience and offer any kind of advice. The main question we have is what sort of time frame we’re looking at. According to Google, applications from the UK can take 3-6 months if everything goes smoothly. But I’m not taking that as gospel. Financially we’re both in a good situation to start the application and there is nothing in either our backgrounds that will be a cause for concern.
Any information would be super appreciated!
