I am looking for as much information as I can regarding becoming a US citizen from the UK. The information and forms on the web are a minefield and I don't want to delay any application I make because of errors.
I am a UK citizen over the age of 21 (29 to be precise). My mother has dual nationality, she was born in the UK, but her father (my grandfather) was an American citizen. She resides in the UK and has not lived in the US since she was a teenager but holds UK and US passports.
From what I have read on the US Immigration website, my mother will need to fill out form I-130 (Petition for Alien Relative). Is this the correct form? Do any other forms need to be completed along with the I-130?
It also mentions that she will have to sponsor me financially. I would of course find work once I had arrived in the US. Would she still need to sponsor me financially if I had a lot of savings to live off of until I found work? (Although this will probably not be the case!)
From what I can understand, if my petition is approved, I will then be put onto a waiting list with other unmarried sons/daughters over the age of 21 of US citizens from the same country. Does this mean I am guaranteed citizenship at this point, or can I still be rejected after inital approval?
I do not have anything skill-wise to offer the US, but will obviously find employment. I don't know if this kind of application takes your skills/education into consideration.
If I were to bring my husband with me (UK citizen), how would that work? Could he become a US citizen?
Any information you can offer me will be greatfully received!

Does the normal Hollyoaks follow on from Hollyoaks Later? I have watched a couple of the Hollyoaks Later this week, but not the normal episodes. If it does follow on, how will everything be explained in the normal one, like Sarah being dead and other things which would need explaining if you didn't watch the later ones?
I hope this makes sense.

I had it temporarily welded but it is now making a hideous noise and scraping on the ground again! Do you think I need a whole new exhaust or not and how much should I be paying as I don't like going to garages as being a woman I always think they are going to rip me off!

Yesterday my partner and I were about to have intercourse when we noticed I was covered in blood, upon checking him we saw there was blood dripping out the end of his penis and wouldn't stop for about 10 mins. We know this isn't normal, and has never happened before. Does anyone got any ideas as to what it could be? He's going to the hospital after work today, but would like to get some ideas before then.

My best friends fiance keeps sending me texts asking me to come round and sleep with him. I have tried ignoring them, then tried telling him to bugger off, but nothing is working. Then the other week the 3 of us were watching a film and she fell asleep and he kept trying to put his hand down my trousers. I told him to sod off. Then the other weekend after we had all had a drink at HIS birthday BBQ, he tried kissing me then trying to have sex! Arrrggghhhh!
Now, what do I do? I have saved the texts on my phone from him as proof, but I don't want her to think I have led him on in any way or for her to blame me for making her unhappy. Or be in the situation where if she forgives him we can't see each other anymore. I don't want to lose her, but I don't want her to marry this complete tos*er either.
I have spoken to other friends about this, and they all say tell her, but it's not that easy....it would break her heart.
Sensible answers please
