Re: Pre-clearance negative experience

Actually, the Municipality is City of Los Angeles. The community name is plain Venice; the actual beach is Venice Beach. The postal address can vary. I live in Los Feliz, but my mailing address is...

Re: F3 visa how long in UK.

Re: Prince Harry's new Job - what visa ?

Re: Relinquishing Green Card

Do note we are talking about payments to expatriates. If a U.S. citizen expatriates, they can continue to collect. If an LPR expatriates (and concomitant abandonment of LPR) then apparently can no...

Re: PERM: Company-sponsored vs Marriage
