wow its cool to know there are others out there in the same situation as me!! So when your man gets out whats your plan? I definetly want to live with him but Im stressing about not getting a stay out there even when I do marry him. I got about 2/3 years left but time flies by so fast I just want to be with my man as soon as he is out but scared it is not as easy as that

Im pretty sure you can stay with a fiance's visa, as long as he is working and can support you, at least thats how i think it works, i could be wrong maybe you should try getting some advice from the u.s embassy.

Default yes!!

i'm from the UK (blackpool) and my sweetheart is in new york and will hopefully get parole this april. i tried to find out what to do and how i can stay with him. i think the fiance visa is the best as otherwise it is quite hard to try and get a visa to stay in the US.
it's nice to know there are a few others out there in the same situation!

Depends on your situation i think, if he was incarcerated for a violent crime, or a drugs offence, i think it will be very difficult for him to get in here, having said that your best bet would be to seek some kind of legal advice from someone, they will help you understand what steps you need to take for him to be allowed to live here.

WOW! This is good to know that there are others out there like me! I used to think that i was the few of the exclusives , but obviously not!!
I met my guy through a pen pal site and i have been with him now for 1 year. I went to a correctional facility in new york to see him for the first time 2 weeks ago - a day which i thought would never happen. I was tested so many times during my organising, planning and getting out to see him that i started thinking to myself 'is this meant to be? Am i really meant to go to new york to see my guy?' I have been on an emotional roller coaster like u would never believe........BUT.....it was worth it and i strongly recommend that if any of u ladies feel that there is something special between u and yr guy.....that u have a connection........dont let the distance put u off....it WILL be worth it in the end. My guy says to me that the distance is just like that saying 'age aint nothing but a number' and its true, he says that even if i lived in the same town as the facility, right across the street, that still wouldnt make a difference because he STILL wouldnt be able to have me or be with me the way we SHOULD be.....so follow yr heart ladies and dont be put off by the size of the ocean.

Talking Hello girls!!

Haha! I thought i was the only one too ( or at least in the severe minority!). How messed up is this... I'm from the UK but am an expat in HongKong completely hook line and sinker in love with a gorgeous man in Angola Louisiana. Reckon I'm about as far round the world from him as I could be without coming back round the other side of the planet.Whoever said 'life's never simple' was right, but I wouldn't change him for all the tea in China (so to speak). Got my first visit planned for this Xmas and I know it will be awesome. I CAN'T WAIT!!!
