Re: Advice on health insurance

I asked about it specifically to the insurance specialist at our training class, and she confirmed that if other insurance is available at all through my spouse, I wouldn't be eligible for enrollment...

Re: Advice on health insurance

That makes sense, especially as I think all the benefits associated with my husband's plan are better than those offered by my employer's plan. It's just the safety of being on it and not having to...

Re: Advice on health insurance

I don't know that it's not legal - it might be a state-by-state thing? I'm not sure. But it seems legit from everything I've read about NC regulations!

I can definitely get on if my husband loses...

Re: Advice on health insurance

Huh! I wonder if it just depends on the specific insurer as to whether they are OK with a client having two plans. Will have to look into that. Thanks for the info on your experience!

If my...

Re: Advice on health insurance

I have to pay $26 a month and they pay the rest. That's not going to cover dental or vision, but I can add those in. The important thing is getting on the plan at all, I suppose. So it's OK to have...

Question Advice on health insurance

Hello all,

Long time no see! Apologies for total absence from this forum; I guess I'm lucky that expat life started to get in the way in a "normal" sense, and run-of-the-mill things like jobs and...

Re: AOS taking FOREVER!

Good lord! I feel for you - I can't believe it has taken so long. Yes, YMMV indeed. Eesh.

Re: AOS taking FOREVER!

Okay, fair enough - you're right, it can take a lot longer than that. The 1-800 number I used was just the one on the USCIS website, on the case status page. They were very helpful. Good luck with...

Re: To naturalize or not to naturalize...

Anyway, back to the topic... It sounds like there are lots of good reasons to naturalise, and not really any huge reasons not to. Thanks to everyone for sharing their experiences and thoughts.

Re: To naturalize or not to naturalize...

I think you might be on to something there. But we'd need an US-born American citizen to be President. I reckon my husband would help us out with that though. :thumbsup:

Re: To naturalize or not to naturalize...

That makes sense - presumably they wouldn't deport a person awaiting trial!

Yeah, my husband gets infuriated by voter apathy here.

Re: To naturalize or not to naturalize...

Fair point. I just wanted to know about people's own experiences, rather than just factual advantages. Some people find it quite a personal choice, others entirely practical. I'm interested in the...

Re: AOS taking FOREVER!

I could well be wrong (I always seem to be!) but that is what the officer on the phone told me, and that was direct from the USCIS. However, this was after an RFE, so that might be why. All the same,...

Re: To naturalize or not to naturalize...

Thanks John. Just having a giggle - this was supposed to be a casual thread anyway! But you're right. There are so many advantages, it seems daft to not do it. I will start saving!

Re: To naturalize or not to naturalize...

Well, I'll know who to blame if that happens. ;) Heh heh. Thank you so much for taking the time to reply again, and with such interesting (and useful!) information.

Re: AOS taking FOREVER!

We got the Cali letter too. Worth a call, I think. :) If it's 90 days or more since your confirmation letter, according to the officer I spoke to, you can file a query about your case. I presume...

Re: To naturalize or not to naturalize...

Yeah, my husband just said, "That would just... no, that couldn't happen. It's so unlikely."


The issue is, of course, that it is unlikely but it IS possible. And in the world of immigration...

Re: To naturalize or not to naturalize...

I agree. I haven't really got any reasons not to, now I have had a little time to consider it. But I like to see what people feel as well as the factual side of the argument. It's good to know people...
