Hey everyone,

I've been looking for visas so I can move over to the States but everything seems to be really difficult or I don't meet requirements.

I am engaged to an American citizen and would like to move over there with her but don't know how! I will become a certified electrician hopefully by early next year (2011) and I want to move to Maryland!

What visas could I go for and how can I remain an electrician so my time in the UK was not wasted?

I would like to eventually go to school and become a cop in the States and would need a full time job upon arrival.

Any help would be appreciated!!

Thanks =)

Visa
Read through the stickies and use the search function. Marriage to US citizen. Yes that is your only chance.

Electrician
There is also quite a bit of information in older posts. Basically you will have to get licensed in the Staate of MD.
Maryland
Maryland Licensing: Contractor, engineer, architect, surveyor, landscape architect registration, license guide

Full time job
You will have to do what a lot of other folks do - apply for jobs; beat the sidewalk after you have your Green Card in hand.

Cop
Some smaller municipalities hire Green Card holders.

Probably K1 or CR1 depending on how you do it. These visas take a long time to process, generally 6 to 10 months, so start your planning early.
