  1. Believe you meant to say "married filing separately."
  2. Some people go to Mexico for dental care. Since you are close to the border, you might ask friends if they know anyone who has done this.
  3. Hi, Applying for disability and actually getting it are 2 different things. Most cases are denied at first. The national average of initial denials is about 66%: https://www.ssa.gov/policy/docs/statcomps/di_asr/2011/sect04.html Most people then get an attorney and appeal. However, the time to see a judge about the denial can be very long, in Phoenix, AZ looks to be about 17 months: https://www.ssa.gov/appeals/DataSets/01_NetStat_Report.html And there is no guarantee he will end up winning his case. If it is for a psych disability, be aware that those cases are very difficult to prove. Also, if you and your husband get support from his family or live with them, or if you decide to become employed, his disability payments can be substantially reduced. https://az.db101.org/az/programs/income_support/ssi/program2a.htm Therefore, the co-sponsor's assets will be the most important.
  4. Congratulations! If driving, please factor in the extra time to navigate the huge (5,600 car capacity) and very confusing parking complex at the Convention Center, and also add the time to get from your car to where you belong inside. This can easily add up to 20 minutes, depending on what other events are happening at the Center. Personally, on such an important day, I'd go for the hotel. Here's the site pages devoted just for the parking: http://www.lacclink.com/attendees/parking
  5. A "common law marriage" actually has legal weight in some states. States That Recognize Common Law Marriage Only a few states recognize common law marriages, and each has specific stipulations as to what relationships are included: Alabama Colorado District of Columbia Georgia (if created before 1/1/97) Idaho (if created before 1/1/96) Iowa Kansas Montana New Hampshire (for inheritance purposes only) Ohio (if created before 10/10/91) Oklahoma (possibly only if created before 11/1/98. Oklahoma’s laws and court decisions may be in conflict about whether common law marriages formed in that state after 11/1/98 will be recognized.) Pennsylvania (if created before 1/1/05) Rhode Island South Carolina Texas Utah
  6. I'm American too, and I second the idea to check out Meetup.com to find other people who share your interests or hobbies. They also have socialization meetups to just hang out. You can set it to search by miles of radius from your home. I have made a number of new friends this way.
  7. Hope he is very wealthy! Just as an example of the extreme costs that are possible, a family member was in an intensive care unit this September (in California) for 11 days, and then in the regular unit of the hospital for 2 more days. Total billed cost: $344,375.00. And he did NOT have any surgery. He is fine now, by the way.
  8. Is your college allowing you to pay resident tuition?
  9. If you'd like an all-inclusive plan in Maryland, you might want to look into Kaiser Permanente. You must exclusively use their providers and services, as it's an HMO, but it's a one-stop-shop plan. They offer the bronze, silver or gold plans per the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare). https://my.kp.org/maryland/
  10. No, they cannot sue you, and they are only legally allowed to say if they would rehire you. On an application for another job, when it asks why you want to quit, you say, "Want a full-time position."
  11. Here's an example of a California school's requirements for enrollment: http://www.lvusd.org/domain/66 Your school may be different, but you could start assembling documents.
