Well - with good insurance co-pays usually aren't outrageous. She should be okay. And if concerned there are options to take out supplemental insurance.

Also - if you've worked before and are laid off, unemployment pay is typically available.

You can do it Boulder - glad you're so excited.

I've been reading back on some of this thread and I wish you well Boulder. I have just arrived back from the UK and now I'm missing home so much. Different strokes for different folks as they say. It's been 17 years since I left the UK. Everything keeps moving on and friends move away as we get older by the day. I just felt like I fitted back in there like I never left. Living there could be some hard adjustments. The reality sets in... Have I changed? Will I manage the financial side to start a new life back in my homeland? (I'm not rich) but comfortable.

I wish you well and much happiness in your new country. I just got a taste of how beautiful my old country actually is.

I just want to thank everyone for the advice I have had here. I don't post often but I do read lots which has been so helpful. We were planning on going to Canada (as it is easier to go there) but now this has come through, we are completely stoked.

We are going to be so busy these next few months but I don't care about that! LOL

Anyway! I just wanted to share my good news.
watch out for the takehome pay

Somehow I suspect that if her husband's company has gone to the bother to use alawyer and bring him over to the US, he is probably not a mimnimum wage worker (and probably asked about that minor detail before he agreed to come).

Oh wait - minimum wage workers can't BE transferred over here. Gee.... he must be a professional of some sort...

The money is good for us and more than what we get here by quite a way. We will be able to live comfortably so we are happy.
