Me and my husband both are seniors and Canadian passport
Me and my husband both are seniors and Canadian passport holders. we are living in Canada for last 45 years. We have our house and assets etc. all in Canada. Our son who is a USA citizen has filed sponsorship I130 in May. However, we are flying to NY via Toronto on 28 June and coming back 4th of July. I am told as long as I carry my paper to show ties with Canada we would be fine. we are going there for conference held in Medicine Square Garden. Do you thin k we would have any problem.

My name is***** am a Green card holder from Brazil.
Hi, my name is***** am a Green card holder from Brazil. In July I celebrated my wedding 2 years after I got married so my grandfather came to visit me from Brazil under a Visitors Visa (B1). However in August 30th he suffered a main heart attack and has been at the hospital with severe brain damage since then, vegetating pretty much. We have been trying to raise money to send him to Brazil but meanwhile the hospital has been pressuring me to take him to my house. I told them that he doesnt live here, his home is in Brazil but the Social worker said "his home is wherever you are". I told her I have no money to hire somebody or cannot quit my job to take care of him. Can they legally discharge him to my house without my consent? If not, what can they do legally since he will require long term care (probably for the rest of his life, which could take months or years)? Thank you!
A married female friend, US green card holder exited US 5
A married female friend, US green card holder exited US 5 years ago. During this period her husband and his brother and the wife had a civil case under the jurisdiction of the NY State Justice, and had a judgement on said civil case, a fine for her of $300,000. and for her husband $1 million. Her connection to the 3 aside from the marriage was 1 of the business cards the investigators got hold of still had her name under her husband's name printed on it.Needless to say they don't have the resources. She needs/wants to come to the US for a family emergency now, went to their country's embassy, was issued a visitor's visa but she had to surrender her green card. What are the problems she maybe faced with on US entry/exit in regards ***** ***** civil case? Can she be detained/imprisoned? Will it matter if she enters thru another state, not NY? Thank you, ***** ***** West Orange,NJ

I am a Canadian citizen who used t have a resident alien card.
I am a Canadian citizen who used t have a resident alien card. As a result I still have my Social Security number and am eligible for the "TN Visa" for Canadian and Mexican qualified professionals. I have a Bachelors in Economics, and along with a job offer, could apply for said visa. Also worth noting, is that my mother lives in Florida full time and is eligible for naturalisation.In the absence of finding a job in my field, I would like to know if I can simply move myself, wife and 2 kids to Florida to be near my mother. Here are related questions to this possible move:1-If we were to buy a house in FLA and pay municipal taxes, would we be considered residents (while still not being citizens)?2-If so, as residents, would my children be eligible to go to the local public high school? Private HS? Also, would children be eligible for in state tuition rates in college while we lived in FLA?3-Again, if residents, what types of health care coverage would we be eligible for? Under the Affordable Care Act? Are children covered in FLA? Or would we need private insurance whilst looking for work?4-If my wife were to work remotely from Florida for a Canadian company as a consultant, where would she have to file her taxes? Assuming pay wired to FLA. Also, would there be any limitations and or difficulties in her returning to Canada for work every month for a few days? Please not that we are NEXUS members. 5-If we were to move down with all our processions, would there be any difficulties at the border?
My mother is a foreign national without a social security #,
My mother is a foreign national without a social security #, but is married to my father who is a US citizen. His primary residence is here in the US (Phoenix, AZ) and her primary residence is in Germany. While she was in the country on a visitors Visa she became sick and had to be hospitalized. My father thought she was covered by Medicare A due to an old military document that said so, but Medicare declined the claim due to not having a social security number. My mother now has a $120,000 medical bill that we have negotiated down to 50% (so $60k) with the hospital. Is my father liable for these medical bills since they are still married and this is a community property state even though she doesn't maintain a primary residence here? What hope does the hospital have in recovering these bills from my mother or my father? Thanks for your help.
