Default HELP- Im a Yank living in UK, marrying a Brit, then both of us moving back to USA

Hi!!! OK, any help on this mighty confusing scenario will really help me out. Sorry if this is long winded but its really complicated.

Basically I am American, living in the UK since 97. I have my ILR stamp and was married and now divorced. I have been with my current fiancee now for 8 years and we intended to marry in 2012 and then in 3-5 years when his boss retires we were going to emmigrate back to the US with the money we have from selling our house here (plus some more money). That was the plan anyway-

As of last week my fiancee has received notice from his boss that he is retiring in 7 WEEKS! and will be redundant as of June 17th. He is a joiner and has been for 25 years. With this news we have decided to sell up now, get hitched straight away and move to rented accomadation while we apply for VISAs and stuff to move to Amerca while he is still young enough to be employed etc...

My questions are this- 1.- we are going to America in June to visit my parents. The option to marry in America is there. Is there a difference in getting married in America or the UK? Does it matter? I know I need to fill out the forms for visas and stuff, but not sure if it makes a difference which country we marry in.

2. which Visa should we apply for? I am living inthe UK remember. I have read the I-130 maybe? My parents are going to sponser him, as well as try to set up work oppurtunities. For instance, we will meet with the local builders they know and see if they would be willing to employ him if we moved over etc..

3. We are going to be going over with a pretty big wad of money so will be buying a house cash, and have a lot left over to live on (property is so cheap in upstate NY!!) I also have an online business, so will be able to set back up pretty quickly when over there to earn money. Money is not a problem when going there, so will this help his case at all?

He has no criminal record and no communicable diseases. We will move over and live with my parents while searching to buy. Should we buy 1st before approved VISAs? Would that help? (sorry if that sounds really stupid hahaha)

4. How long in general do the VISAs take to come through. Just curious, as we will be renting and dont want to eat too much onto our America Fund while waiting for the VISAs.

Thanks for ANY info anyone can help me with, as I feel overwhelmed with what to do 1st. thanks xxxx
