I am retired. I am 67 yrs old. I am currently living in Nicaragua but will be returning to the USA September 2014. Yes, I do read and listen to the news BUT what is it REALLY like right now? What am I walking into. Need some really hard core / honest answers. THANKS
I am returning to my previous address in Norcross, GA
... don't even have a clue about prices / cost of things .... so very out of touch ... have subscribed to Kroger and Publix weekly ads just to get a "feel" for things
It depends on where you are moving and what in particular your concerns are. Safety? Healthcare? Weather? Cultural environment? All of the states are so different so depending on which one you are looking to move to will help us provide more informative answers.

Hi everyone, I am new here and so grateful that I found this forum.
My husband was born in Brazil and lived there until he was recruited for a job here in the US. We now live in Texas. His parents are retired and his father receives a Brazilian pension. They have decided that they would like to obtain their green cards and move to Miami for a while. They are going through the green card process now. Neither of them would be working / earning money in the US - my father-in-law receives a pension from when he worked in Brazil. What I need to know is this: Would they be required to file income taxes and pay income tax on the pension money they receive from the pension he receives from being a retired judge? I am sure his retirement is already taxed in Brazil, prior to his receiving it. It would be a shame for him to pay double taxes. (It would be a substantial amount of tax here in the US, if considered taxable income.) I would sure appreciate any suggestions! Thank you in advance!!!
Hi, I'm Brazilian living in California. I would suggest that you contact a good immigration attorney in Miami. I am a Realtor with a certification in international transactions and The U.S. Taxation laws are quite complicated. I would pay extra attention with Estate Tax considering that your in-laws are getting older. With a green card they will be treated as any American Citizen. Check this website www.lehmantaxlaw.com and also join the Brazilian Expat Groups on LinkedIn. There was a discussion about double taxation going on recently. Good luck!
My husband and I recently eloped on his last visit from the UK to see me in the US and I'm currently applying for a UK marriage settlement visa. He's scheduled to visit me in the US in the beginning of April while the visa is still being processed - will he have any trouble getting into the US now that we're married? We're concerned that out of fear that he might try to stay that they won't allow him in. We could really use some advice about what to say at customs from someone who's experienced this :) thanks in advance!
I wouldn't and I would not be wearing a ring either. I would say I had a few days off and wanted to shop for Mother's day presents and visit some museums.
Thank you :)
If they do ask who he's here to visit though should he mention he's here to see his wife?
As a New Yorker who is now traveling, it was fun to read this article. I think Mr Wood has it spot on and on point with his advice. I would add that though New Yorkers can be guarded at times, they can melt like butter, so a smile goes a long way. Also be prepared for big city Ups and Downs. NY can reward the ones who put in effort but she can also kick you when you're down, so develop a hard skin and go for it. Living in NY is wonderful, enjoy it, you're living in one of the world's greatest cities.

replied to the thread I want to migrate to the USA
on the United States forum:
I'm a licensed Insurance Agent and I want to migrate to the USA with my husband, his kids and my 2yr old...or just me and my 2yr...what state is highly recommended and where can I find a job?
I would suggest contacting major Insurance Companies concerning employment and possibly applying ahead of time. That might also help you determine where you are going to live. Once you have a job and build a US work history and resume, you can always relocate by applying for a transfer or a new job. Good luck!
Carleneb - Tell me a little more about yourself and I'll be able to recommend some states to you.
Insurance is probably a tough shot at getting a visa. Do you work for a large insurer? What country are you from?
