Please keep this thread for questions about life in the USA...finances, medical, taxes, etc.

Visa questions should be asked and answered in our Marriage-Based Visa section.

Thank you,

Yes but how do you make the OP go over to that forum if they're not active there?
Would it not be better to keep all questions by an OP in a single thread instead of being fragmented?

I did not see any questions about visas. It seems like a valid US immigration topic to me.
Way to make a new guy feel welcome. Not your usual wonderful self Rene?

I agree RICH.
It's tough trying to help at times when some questions get deemed inappropriate/irrelevant by someone external.
Plus, some postings don't fit into neat categories.

No, the OP didn’t ask any questions about visas—but the folks who responded did. Noorah simply suggested that the OP might be better served to drop by the specialist marriage section of the forum when he is ready to find out about that aspect of his move. Seemed like a courteous enough request to me!

'Visa questions should be asked and answered'

No big issue but not really a simple suggestion.

Since the topic of visas came up (K-1, CR-1), and the OP hasn't yet started either process, my post was meant as a general reminder to all. It wasn't meant to be harsh or unwelcoming; apologies if it came across that way.

By suggesting that they become active over there (hence my post) when it comes time to start a visa process.

Would it not be better to keep all questions by an OP in a single thread instead of being fragmented?
No, because the BE USA forums are organized such that visa-specific questions are kept separate from general life in the USA forum. There will be some crossover, yes, but now that we know the OP will have a marriage-based visa, those questions (if he has any) should go in the marriage- based visa forum. His current questions on living in FL, Medicare, banking, perhaps insurance, taxes and such should remain in the USA thread.

Thanks!
Rene

Seems exceedingly simple to me. The US forum has sub-forums. As the OP only has 3 posts to his name, asking him and those responding to him that are asking about his visa intentions to use the marriage-based visa forum, is simply the start of making this thread a visa thread. Better to suggest, something such as "BE has a marriage-based visa forum which covers USC marrying foreigners and members will be happy to assist you with questions and answers, when you are ready to discuss them, whether they are for the Fiancee Visa (K-1) or the CR-1 / IR-1 marriage visa.

We already know that the OP is unfamiliar with the US retiree healthcare system as he used the term several times that his elderly fiancée is on Medicaid instead of what is usually Medicare. As David pointed out to the OP, Medicaid is for those who can't afford medical insurance and if this is so, then the OP will have mucho problems emigrating to the US.

No need for an apology Noorah...it's just confusing at times that the type of questions allowed are so forum dependent.
Especially if the OP may be in a complex scenario with many possible variables that are not apparent immediately but forth come through aforesaid questioning.

You misunderstand my point, that Noorah issued an instruction, not a suggestion.
Anyway, never mind. Delete this if you want.

Some of us are interested and like to help regardless of which forum we find ourselves in.

Default Re: Moving to Florida

To clarify...the US Immigration forums are purely for questions and answers regarding US visas and citizenship. It is not to ask questions/give answers or discuss healthcare/insurance/what type of car to buy/the dog next door’s puppies etc, etc, etc.

If a member asks such questions within an Immigration thread, please ask them politely to open a new thread in the Main US Forum or Trailer Park Forum. Alternatively hit the ‘Report Post’ tab and request that a moderator sorts it out.

Thanks very muchly.

As RICH alludes to...things just seem a little too rigid for no apparent reason.
But ok...try to stay within the guidelines.

Tamp those burning questions down..

Jerseygirl was referring to the marriage forum.

I was referring to the USA forum.
