      First of all, you're gonna need to wait until you turn 18. If you wanna come here to work maybe her brothers can offer you a job contract and you can come here on a H1B visa (valid for a certain amount of time and it's renewable), but if you want to live and stay here permanently you need to marry a US citizen or win the Visa lottery lol which i don't see any of these happening in the near future because you're too young to get married and winning the visa lottery is as slim as hitting the jackpot.

          Do you really want to go to Iowa?

          All there is is corn, as far as the eye can see!

              Josephine is right, i just passed through IOWA by train lol, it's just like North Dakota, but anyways, you're a british citizen so you can come here on a 90 days visa waiver program which is a tourist visa. People who come here on a visa waiver program can't adjust status or apply for another visa here, you have to go back to England and do so. This is what i think would work best for you, you're about to turn 18 and need to go to college, well why don't you apply for a 4 year degree at a college here and apply for a student visa, you would get 4 years and would be allowed to work part-time.Then when you complete your degree and find a stable job, it would be your ticket to get your green card.

                hi dave_d

                you can always come to USA using your waiver but you will have to go back to UK.... What I would advise you is wait little bit longer ... pass the legal age of marrying your GF...and then do marriage based petition .... That way you will be able to live in US legally with you love....meanwhile you can always visit her....good luck...Pasha

                  Corn IS relavant.

                  He might go there and expect to see buildings or a McDonalds.

                  Instead, nothing but CORN, that you can't even see over the top of.

                      if you come here after filing marriage based petition ... that would be lot easier for you to get into any college as you will have conditional permanent green card.... You can just apply as other USC / permanent residents after coming here...good luck
