I’m Recessionista… I grew up in Toronto, Ontario & went to school in Vancouver, BC. I currently live in Vancouver, but in 8 months I will be moving to Kentucky, USA. After my final trip to the US this holiday season- we’re filing for my visa 🙂

ooo me too me too! I am really liking this new board! haha.

I am wahlstrombjoy, I live in Orange County, CA and my FI lives in Sweden, near Stockholm.  We will be living in California after the wedding (also in CA) and after the massive amounts of dreaded paperwork go through!

@wahlstromb: you’re sponsoring your FI to the US! When are you sending in your paperwork??

I’m really curious… the trend seems to be that all foreigners dating American’s move to the US! Innnntersting.

For us it was never really an option for him to move here. I just always thought I’d move there. I’m leaving a lot, but I want to start my life with him in the po-dunk little kentucky town. haha

I’m American and he’s French.  We were both living in NY during our first 7 months together, but the past 4.5 years have been long distance.  I can’t wait to finally live together!  The plan is for him to move to the US for the first couple of years of our marriage and then we’ll move to France.

I’m a Texan engaged to an Aussie. I’ll be the one moving to join him. Luckily he works in Immigration (though not spouse visas) so it’s his job to translate the governmentspeak into English for me.

@daydream: Thanks for the good juju! I’ll need the entire hive’s prayers & good vibes!!

Anywa… Its a lot easier to get into Canada than the US. I remember learning in high school that Canada accepts something insane like close to 50% of all refugees, while the US accepts less than 3%. I know a refugee & a spouse are different lol, but I just remember being shocked by the acceptance rate.

Canada loves everyone & part of our culture is others cultures! Canada would suck w/o immigrants 🙂

I’m in Michigan and the FI is English.  He is coming to the US, and we just sent in his immigration paperwork a few weeks ago.  I’m incredibly anxious about the whole process, just keeping my fingers crossed that we did everything as we were supposed to!

I’m American and my DH is South African. We’re not LDR but we will be for the first half of 2010 because I’m moving back to the States to set up home. We just got married last month, and have submitted the paperwork for his visa from China (we’ve been living here for the last year). I pray that it all goes smoothly. Another friend of mine who married her South African beau had a very smooth process and he got his greencard in about 7 months, so I’m hoping for the same good luck.

I’m RedTartan. I’m in California and The Boy is nearly 6,000 miles away in England. We JUST got engaged, so we’re still researching different visa options before starting the paperwork. He’ll be moving here – I love England, but I cannot handle English winters. I’m not worried about it (most of his family are US citizens and will be sponsoring him, he’s very well-educated, and he has a squeaky-clean background); I just miss him a lot.

I’m from southwestern Ontario, Canada and FI is Korean.  I moved to Korea 4 years ago….met FI in my third month while I was teaching businessmen…and now I’m here for a long time.  We’ll eventually move back to Canada, but by that time I think I will be just as much an ‘immigrant’ as he will be.  Thankfully, since I’m already on a work visa, I’ll be able to switch to my spouse visa quite easily.  However, for the first few years after we get married, we have to keep going back to Korean immigration regularly to ‘prove’ we are still in a real relationship!!!!

@RB – sorry it took so long to respond,

We are currently preparing the first stage of our paperwork as we speak.  My FI just mailed me his part of the work, so as soon as it gets here (probably a week from now) I will send it in!

I was born to Indian parents in the Middle East where I grew up. When I was 16 I emmigrated to Canada and have been a proud Canadian since then!  After school I moved to Alberta from Ontario. FI is from the US (lives in Vermont) and I plan on moving there as soon as paperwork is complete. It made sense for me to move since we calculated that those would be our “babymaking years” and he would have to support us 😛
