Re: Quarantine for COVID 19 discussions.

Re: Quarantine for COVID 19 discussions.

The link even states "Avoid staying at a hotel". I'm not sure if this is just advice or a requirement. I have to quarantine for 14 weeks when I drive my daughter up from Maryland for her 2nd year at...

Re: Post naturalization social security

I didn't know I had to inform the SSA when I naturalized in 2006. It became an issue in 2011 when my daughter was applying for federal student loans. She indicated on the FAFSA application that she...

Re: Registering a birth in the UK

Yeah - it says registration date but that wasn't my experience. I had an issue (pardon the pun) because of the issue date. My daughter's Maryland birth cert was short form (that's the default in...
