Debra, Expert

Hello and Welcome to JustAnswer. My name is***** will be working on your question today and I am looking forward to our conversation.

Debra, Expert

Please note that the experts don’t text so there may be a bit of a delay. If you don’t answer back for a while I may not be online when you do but I will never desert you and will check back often. As well, as I am working from home it is possible that I will be interrupted but I will always return back as soon as I can.

I am sorry to hear of this difficult situation.

Are either of you skilled workers?

Debra, Expert

Without the information I requested, I can only give a general answer, but I hope this is helpful.

You may be able to apply as a skilled worker.

If you can get a job offer your chances of success will be greater but a job offer is not mandatory.

Here is a link to the information you should read about the skilled worker application:

And here is an online assessment tool that you can use to help determine what your chances of success are:

Does that help as a starting point?

Considering that my wife is american, is there any other process for her that she can follow?

Debra, Expert

One of you can apply and the other can be part of the application process. See who gets more points.

There is nothing special about US applicants.

The links above explain the process.
