Ya well I don't remember being too freaked out. I was pretty naive back then (well still am just not to the same extent...LOL) and just had a la la attitude that everything would work out. I kinda wonder though if I were another nationality if I woulda had to return in person?? I guess I musta come across exactly like I was. Naive!!

Amusing Recollection:

The talk about going for K1 interviews brought back memories of trying to make a consular appointment for the interview itself. After hours of navigating the US Gov site, I was quite proud of myself for actually unearthing the telephone number. Imagine my surprise when I phoned only to find that the number automaticly switched to a 900# which would add a fee to my phone bill just for making the appointment. LOL

I thought that was the ultimate in Yankee free enterprise.

I'm on this exact same route myself. Girlfriend in Texas, wants to get married, etc...

I'm going down there to meet her parents this summer, then after that we'll figure out other things. I just hope the wait isn't too unbearable, although I've been with her 5 years and it feels like I met her yesterday in some respects. I knew it would be expensive. Hopefully it won't take that long to actually move there...hehe

We are U.S. citizens who immigrated to Canada. A caution on the consideration of seeking U.S. citizenship. The U.S. is the only country in the world to tax on citizenship rather than residency, i.e., not matter where you live in the world, for how long outside of the United States, as long as you retain your U.S. citizenship you are obligated to file and pay U.S. taxes.

Canada taxes on residency as do all other countries so if you change your residence to another country (legally in that you meet the requirements of Canadian law for non-residency) you do not file or pay Canadian taxes.

We file and pay U.S. taxes and file and pay Canadian taxes. I just offer this information as a caution to you if you do decided to immigrate. Good luck to you on your decision.
