Topic: The Club House / Want to live/work in USA

Hmm long story short?Was married to a girl who was born in Canada & raised in Michigan so she knew a lot about visas etc.Now getting divorced from same so had to put emmigration on back burner while I sorted life out.
The job has changed beyond all recognition in UK,not least of which being removing the next rank that I would’ve been promoted to.So the thought of doing another 22 years with zero prospect of promotion does not appeal.Having worked on a 2 year secondment in the carribbean I discovered I preferred living abroad,preferably somewhere sunny. As I’ve been lucky enough to travel extensively in the USA,and liked most of the places I’ve been to it seemed logical to try to move there.
Why did I stop trying?It just seemed that one roadblock after another was being put in my way,I can understand it as this was just after 9/11 but can only hope things have calmed down a little.
Thanks for the websites will give them a try.
Best regards
Dave Butler

Topic: The Club House / Want to live/work in USA

In 2001 I had an interview in a prison in Texas,I was offered a job and tried to do all the paperwork but it seemed like you get through one bunch of paperwork only to be confronted by another lot,i.e. fill in all the immigration stuff then you have to satisfy the requirements of the labour board.I guess that’s why immigration lawyers make such a good living lol !
Any suggestions as to how you go about getting a green card without having first secured a job or how you get a job without a green card gratefully recieved.

I had no responses for a while,then had a change in domestic circumstances so had to concentrate on other things.Now things are all sorted and there is no further any avenue of promotion for me in the UK ,I would once again be very grateful for any assistance or information anyone could give me on making the move to the USA.
Any state,any security category of prison,public or private sector I am still interested in moving ANYWHERE as long as it’s in the USA!
