Re: N-400 + Nolle Prosequi Traffic Ticket

Ticket was $155, attorney was $300. No court costs, didn't need to pay the ticket, but had to spend < $100 on the online class.

Re: N-400 + Nolle Prosequi Traffic Ticket

Okay. Thanks. Sorry just have mentioned the ticket was in SC. I don't think that changes your answer though.

N-400 + Nolle Prosequi Traffic Ticket

Starting to make some progress on my N-400 under the 3 year rule. 3 year anniversary in December, but able to file early - hopefully before the price hike.

Back in 2017 I received a moving...

Re: Home and garden projects

Currently at over 4% interest on a mortgage from a few years ago. Considered a refi, but the break even was too many years to bother with. A few of my friends refied and never even bothered to check...

Re: Separation/Divorce

I would seek an experienced family lawyer and ask if they work with an immigration attorney that they can recommend. Being in California and close to the border I wouldn't be surprised if this isn't...

Re: Emigrating to USA with personal firearms

You need a permit to purchase a handgun if you don't have a conceal carry. It's issued by the sheriff Dept of where you live. It's a pain really, requires two in person visits.

Re: Emigrating to USA with personal firearms

The pros and cons of the VA non resident licence depends on the state. E.g. in NC you can use it to conceal carry, but not to purchase a hand gun (which you can do on an NC conceal carry).

Re: Emigrating to USA with personal firearms

I'd agree with this. The international aspect probably means working with a large FFL. I would assume there to be a few within Atlanta capable of it. I can think of only one within Charlotte that...

Re: Emigrating to USA with personal firearms

I was going to mention the suppressors issue. Relatively trivial to legally acquire in the UK, but that tax stamp here will take a long time.

Re: Emigrating to USA with personal firearms

Are you sure you'll incur a loss by selling and purchasing again in the USA? Generally firearms are far more expensive in the UK. Unless there was some big sentimental attachment that's the path I'd...

Re: stolen GC+ UK Passport

Dang i'm so glad the passport/GC/DL is there. The bank cards should be trivial to replace in comparison.

Re: Moving 529 account to in-state to get the tax deduction?

I don't have kids, but currently manage 3 529 accounts for different members of the family.

Here's my understanding:
1. No, but a 529 roll over is allowed with some certain rules. Intra-state is...

Re: Wanting to move to California - what can I do there?

The median Sr software engineer in Charlotte from my experience as a hiring manager is around 120k. Of course not close to a silicon valley salary.

If you haven't already you'll realize that it doesn't take much to send posts on long tangents. Just be thankful OP didn't ask about the different types of washing machines.

If we are talking about KKK stereotypes in NC in 2020 then we may as well drag up all of the CA gang stereotypes from times gone by?

But seriously... We know every area has pros and cons and is...
