Hi all. I have already started the application, had my medical and things and it all seems to be going well. My only concern is what it will mean for my family. My girlfriend and I are not married yet, but plan to soon (before emigrating). My girlfriend has a son from a previous relationship I love the lad and would adopt him if I needed to (his father is not in the picture/never been involved/not on the B'certificate) (he is 6 years old btw) We are just really unsure what this will mean for us, any advice would be greatly appreciated.
