Re: Moving with our dog

As others have suggested, the airline might have additional requirements, so it's a good idea to check with them also. That being said, we travel by car from Canada to the US fairly regularly and...

Re: exemptions from 6 month rule?

Agreed, in your case I see no downside to getting US citizenship sooner rather than later. In my case, I was a US permanent resident from 1984 until finally getting US citizenship in 2008 - but the...

Re: exemptions from 6 month rule?

This is an old thread, but i noticed you didn't state specifically anywhere whether your husband is the father of your kids or not. Assuming he is, they may have aquired US Citizenship at birth....

Re: N400 Interview - Tax Returns?

Same here. When I naturalized in 2008, I brought copies of everything listed, and everything else I though might be relevant. The interviewer didn't ask for any of it except my green card.

Re: Adjustment of Status for a child - Help!

Yes, but this is a child presumably under the age of 18. So this is different than for an adult in a similar situation. Illegal presence for the purpose of a ban does not accrue until the age of...

Re: ESTA is not possible if I was denied to get B-2?

Re: Potential plan for us

I am just pointing out that it is an option. Note that UPS mailboxes are not the same as a PO box. The address format of an UPS box is different, and more flexible.

Re: New Jersey Driver's License

II believe whether or not you have to take a test depends on which country the license you wish to exchange was issued in and whether or not there is a treaty on accepting each others licenses. For...

Re: Dual citizen full time employed UK + seasonal job in USA tax??

Re: UK citizen wishing to move to US

Of course not. If the only reason to get married is to "get around immigration rules", it would be fraud. Nobody here would suggest fraud to anyone.

On the other hand, for someone living in a...

Re: Why Canada?
