Immigration Timeline

  1. For 2015 we filed MFS. For 2016 we are filing MFJ, I received my greencard at the end of March 2016. I don't have health insurance but my wife does, would we only count from March onwards that I had no health insurance or the full 12 months?
  2. Is it correct that we do not have to fill in and file form 8938 as we are filing jointly and my total overseas assets are below $100 000?
  3. Thank you Maria. Have a great weekend.
  4. Was just looking online and saw this. It was posted yesterday. http://www.reviewjournal.com/news/politics-and-government/irs-no-longer-enforcing-obamacare-individual-mandate-report-says
  5. Hi Everyone. My wife and I preparing our tax return. I am the LPR spouse. I have a foreign bank account in the UK which I received interest of just under 780 dollars. Do we need to fill in Schedule B, 1099 INT, or both? Also do I put my name and social security number on these forms or my wife's or both? Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.
  6. You only have to book your medical. The Embassy will send you an appointment letter with your interview date once they have the results from your medical.
  7. They are only interested in the US Citizens income. Your income has no bearing on your application whatsoever. And as has already been mentioned they won't even ask about it.
  8. Thank you so much Nich-Nick. My wife and I have found your posts to be invaluable from the beginning and made our whole journey through the process a lot easier, and they're still invaluable now. Once again Thank You.
  9. Hi Everyone, I was wondering if I need to fill an FBAR out for 2015 or not. I came to the USA on 26th Oct 2015 from the UK. We got married on 23rd Dec 2015. Filed for AoS in Feb 2016 and I received my Green card without interview on 31st March 2016. I know that I am above the FBAR threshold but I'm not sure if I am classed as a permanent resident for 2015 as I didn't get my green card till 2016. My wife filed her taxes for 2015 as MFS. Just wondering if anyone could offer any advice. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.
  10. Thank you for your reply. My wife is going to amend her return and file a MFS for 2015. I'm still unsure about the FBAR, I think I might just fill it in anyway as I'm not sure when my status as a resident began. I returned the W9 form to my bank saying I am a resident as I had read a few people on here had done while still in the AoS period. I have no address or anything in the UK now, I guess I'll be a resident soon enough anyway. Thank You.
  11. Hi all, Wondering if anybody can offer any advice. I moved to the US from the United Kingdom on 26th October 2015. We got married on 23rd December 2015. We are currently in the AoS period and everything is going along nicely. I still have my bank accounts in the UK. One my current account which I am living on at the moment and an online savings account. I haven't opened an account here yet as my I want to go with my wife's bank which is a credit union but they won't let me open an account till I have a greencard. My wife filed her tax return in January for 2015 as a single person. I haven't filed one as I have not worked here and have no income. I received a W9 form from my UK bank which I have completed and returned. I have been reading up and I'm not sure if I need to fill in form 8938 as I didn't file a tax a return for 2015 as I only got here at the end of October and don't work. Do I need to fill in FBAR? As my online savings account exceeds $10000 as it is from Inheritance from when my father passed away. I'm guessing I do. This is all very confusing. Any help and advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time.
