  • Marry in England or US?

    I am from Engand, and am marrying my boyfriend a US citizen. I want to work In the US ASAP as my bofriend cannot really afford to support the both of us. so I have a few questions. if you can help

    1.Would it be quicker to to get my Work papers) If we got married in England?

    2. How long does this process take/

    3. if it is quicker to file in the UK, can I go back to the states on a Tourist Visa while my application is being processed.

    4. Also How long do I have to stay in the states until I am aloud to leave the country/

    I would appreciate any info, as I am tearing my hair out with worry.

    thanks

      you can marry in either country, but you can enter the US on a fiance visa K-1 which will take 4-6months, you can also apply for your work permit at the same time which will allow you to work, once your married and in the states you can adjust your status, but going to the states on a VWP and marrying you boyfriend is not the right way to do it, cos if you do it that way, you will not be able to leave the states till the AOS is complete, hope this helps
