How to Apply for UK Spouse Visa from USA

We highly suggest that you familiarize yourself with the entire process and documents needed before you submit your online application because once you do, you start a clock and only have a limited amount of time to finish the subsequent steps.  If you miss the deadline, you'll have to apply from the beginning again including paying a second time.  

Thanks to Aquila for this comprehensive list.
