Re: Hi I am New.

OK, this perfectly demonstrates my point. Your health insurance will probably look more like $1200 a month (just for the policy) and then you'll have a deductible, co pays etc. So your first $3000...

Re: Hi I am New.

I would trade for the NHS in a heart beat. If you think that healthcare here is better, it really isn't, it's just more expensive. How much do you pay for your private health care in the UK? If...

Re: Hi I am New.

As someone who moved to Florida...

Re: Time Scales For Citizenship Application

The marriage to the USC is 11 years old, the presence in the US is the issue. We were married in 2006 but we lived in the UK until 2015. I'm just thinking if I apply 90 days before the 3...

Time Scales For Citizenship Application

Hi all,

I know that the required time in the US is 3 years (married to a USC) to apply for Citizenship. However, when we took our daughter for hers at the USCIS they said you can submit the...

Re: To move or not to move

Nothing you have said suggests that you could qualify for a Visa at this point. Your qualifications will not translate in the US but those are not occupations that would enable you to get a Visa in...

Re: Emigration Advice

You think, or you know? I would be stunned to hear that someone who wasn't in the upper echelons of the corporate side and employed by Disney making that kind of money. I personally know one of the...

Re: Emigration Advice

They are notorious for low wages, largely because they can be. There are always a slew of dreamers willing to work for less. It was only relatively recently that they instituted a policy to pay $10...

Re: Emigration Advice

Most of the British people here who are not on family based visas are on the E2 visa and have to self fund their own healthcare. It's not about discriminating on nationality, it's about the route...

Re: Emigration Advice

Here's the thing.... positivity does not create reality or opportunity. Coming to a forum for advice is only as worthwhile as you are to listen to and take on board the advice given. While this may...

Re: Have I made a wise choice to finally give up my American Dream?

To answer the title question of your thread. Yes, it is a wise decision to give up on moving to the US. It just isn't going to happen for you. If you're considering an EU move, I'd get a wriggle...

Re: Question: CR-1 timeline with criminal record

Speaking from experience, telling a CBP officer that the purpose of your visit is to see your significant other is a bad move. I was denied entry doing just that. I was turned around and put...

Re: Question: CR-1 timeline with criminal record

I would echo what other folks have said. Your best chance is for you to move to the UK. The issue with an E2 visa is that while there is a waiver available, you have already filed the I-130...
