Right, my story. A while back i met and American girl in England who i fell in love with, unfortunately the time came when she had to return to USA and resume her studies. We have discussed many many options, the intention is that she will be coming back to Englnd and continuing her studies once she has graduated. We were hoping this would be December but after sitting down and having a tough conversation we decided her studies were far too important to be jepordised by finishing early and instead decided the sensible thing would be for her to graduate in May as originally planned.
Now, we have decided that i will go to America next year and be with her whilst she finishes studying, she will then come back to England with me and we will begin a life in blighty. I've worked out that i'll be spending round 4 and a half months in America and she will signing a lease for an apartment for us shortly. I've looked on line and can see the best option would be for me to get a B2 visa, this enables me to be in America upto 6 months. Problem is, i'm not sure how to go about it, or what my eligibility is. I will be 25 by the time i'm in America, i am currently saving up to support myself whilst i am out there. I am in employment but will be leaving my job when it comes to leaving England. It is literally for 4 and a half months and we have no intention of staying in America once she has graduated.
What is the next step? what documents will i need which will help my visa application along? Do i have to apply via the consulate? I apologise for my ignorance on the subject, but any help or tips anyone can provide will be very much appreciated.
