Re: Leaving the USA... possible to keep permanent resident card alive?

I've only been in the US about two years, so no citizenship for me. I suppose if we wanted to return I'd just go through the same process all over again.

Re: Moving dog back to uk

In my view this is the tricky part. 10 days to ship is such a tight deadline, I don't know why isn't longer. In Phoenix here, as far as I know the nearest USDA office for approvals is in New Mexico....

Re: Leaving the USA... possible to keep permanent resident card alive?

Thanks for that. We are intending to leave for good, but nothing in life is certain. It would have been nice to keep the option open, but I doubted it would be possible.

My wife had two years max...

Re: Need some opinion - a family meltdown....

Thanks guys for all opinions for and against.

For a while there my wife had decided she'd have to stay in the US if her son made her choose like that. Thankfully Son C has come round to accept the...

Re: Need some opinion - a family meltdown....

I think he did feel abandoned back then, that's fair to point out. I apologized to him for whisking his mother off to the UK. But he admitted it was for the best at the time, and was glad I took care...

Re: Need some opinion - a family meltdown....

Seriously, that's not going to happen now :eek:

Her other son would be great to see and have an evening meal or something... but Son C? Don't think so.

Re: Need some opinion - a family meltdown....

Thanks all for the advice. This situation has stressed me out and really stressed out my wife, to the extent of her having nightmares!

Re: US to UK - converters, cat shipping and freight cost

Thanks guys, all good info. If I don't have to waste money on a clunky converter then that's a plus. We have the cat booked in Sat to start the pet passport process, and I've contacted PBS freight...

Re: Return to UK for healthcare

Good luck with your treatment. I'm guessing this is the issue most expats don't want to think about i.e. going home for treatment even when they have US insurance. And it makes you wonder what use...

Re: Class 2 or Class 3 national insurance contributions?

Great thread, great info.

I sent that form off ages and ages ago, feeling very efficient at covering all bases. But they never bothered to reply to me, and it's been on my to-do list for too long....

I was reading about this elsewhere, on a Nevada forum. It's a disturbing story. The police even shot the dog a couple of times with some type of mace (?).
