Re: USA vs Australia

That is not true for the UK, it changed some years back while I was still working at Heathrow. If a person arrives in the UK on a visa issued by a UK Embassy, the Chief Immigration Officer can only...

Re: UK State Pension in the US

We have our UK pensions paid into a UK account and transfer them over when we decide the rate is what we like. But we have a tidy sum in 5 pensions each month so it is worth while. Being laid up from...

Re: Marry US guy and head full of tax questions !

If it was me I would run that past a US tax professional, to make sure the IRS will indeed accept that payment is a pension. The IRS has its own way of interpreting things and nearly always to their...

Re: Need a Licensed UK Solicitor in Washington State

Normally they will not do it as it can usually be done by a Notary, but where it can't they can make exemptions. It seems staff are still working remotely so doubt they would be able to unless an...

Re: Citizenship App Travel Advice Needed

Go to the interview. If they offer a same day oath or a day before your trip, politely decline it because of your Christmas travel, and ask for a date after your return from the UK.
