Re: Condo in Chicago area

He was looking at small apartments in Evanston, it's a studio but at least you're not in the hood and more of your payment is tax deductible.

And high schools are a whole other ball game to...

Re: Condo in Chicago area

Re: Condo in Chicago area

Also in Illinois you do need a lawyer but your realtor will be able to recommend one. You should only need to pay them about $250 assuming it's a simple transaction.

Re: Nurse Trained Midwife wanting to move to Florida...where do I start??

Since any employment visas have to be initiated by the employer it isn't worth getting your own lawyer yet, any lawyer that tries to tell you they can help you with that for a price is to be avoided.

Pregnant mothers see OB-GYns as a rule rather than midwives. In most states midwives work as independent...

Re: Desperate in Texas - Divorce,immigration and children

The reality is you are probably going to have to go back to the UK no matter what. Do you have friends or family you can turn to for help when you get there on Sunday?
