HELLO LANE...YOUR ANSWERS TO MY...
HELLO LANE...YOUR ANSWERS TO MY QUESTIONS HAVE BEEN EXCELLENT... I HAVE CONTINUED TO DO RESEARCH INTO THE VARIOUS ASPECTS OF MY MATTER AT HAND... IT LOOKS LIKE I WENT OFF INTO THE WRONG DIRECTION IN TRYING TO TRYING TO RESOLVE MY SITUATION... INSTEAD OF
TRYING TO GET 'LEGAL PRESENCE' FOR MY FUTURE WIFE (WHICH IS COMPLICATED AND TIME CONSUMING) I FOUND OUT THAT AS AN 'EXPATRIATE' I CAN BE MARRIED TO A 'NON RESIDENT ALIEN' (NRA) AND IN ACCORDANCE WITH INTERNATIONAL TREATIES WITH VARIOUS COUNTRIES, SPAIN INCLUDED,
THAT SHE CAN COLLECT MY 'SPOUSAL' AND 'SURVIVER' BENEFITS AT THE AGE OF 66 (?)... THIS DISCOVERY HAS NOW RASIED MORE QUESTIONS WHICH I HOPE YOU CAN HELP ME WITH, AS FOLLOWS: PLEASE REPLY BY QUESTION NUMBER (i.e. QUESTION #1, QUESTION #2,....etc) QUESTION#1:

FOR MY INTERNATIONAL PROFILE IS THAT I WAS A 'PROFESSIONAL MARINE ENGINEER' IN THE U.S. MERCHANT MARINE... BORN IN BROOKLYN NEW YORK..ATTENDED 'MARITIME COLLEGE' AT FORT SCHUYLER NEW YORK... THE ANSWER SEEMS PRETTY OBVIOUS, BUT, "AM I LEGALLY CONSIDERED AN
'EXPATRIATE' FOR THE PURPOSE OF MY FUTURE WIFE TO BE GET MY 'SPOUSAL AND SURVIVOR BENEFITS"? I DID MY RESEARCH BY GOOGLE AND WAS DIRECTED TO: 'U.S. SOCIAL SECURITY TIPS FOR EXPATS NON-RESIDENT ALIEN SPOUSES...'EXPAT...WALL STREET JOURNAL' PLEASE GO TO THAT
WEB SITE...CHECK OUT ALL THE INFO ENCLOSED..ALSO AT THE BOTTOM IT REFERS TO THE 'SOCIAL SECURITY ADMINISTRATION INTERNATIONAL OFFICE' FOR ADDITIONAL INFO (CHECK THAT INFO ALSO)...I IT SEEMS LIKE MY FUTURE WIFE QUALIFIES...YOUR ANSWER PLEASE.. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
