New (UK) Military Spouse to Okinnawa, Japan.....Help please

Hi all!


I AMA soon to be military spouse as I get married to my fiancé Dec 2012. He is originally American in the air force. I am of UK citizenship and due to move to Okinnawa, Japan in Dec where my fiancé is currently based. I have a daughter and a good job here and would appreciate any advice you could give in regards to getting the right paper work to transition our move as smoothly and quickly as possible. So I am thinking immigration visa, work visa both in the US and wherever we eventually get PCS'd (have I said that right?)


Any advice would be much appreciated, ps ignore the caps of 'AMA' at the begginging of message as I can't seem to edit it to 'I am a' :)


Hope to hear from you soon.
