New and feeling lost (German/American couple)

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I am American and live with my husband (German) in Munich. I currently work in advertising and dislike it and my husband is getting his master's in Computer Science. When he is done, we would like to move to the US. Here's the problem/what I'm slightly nervous about: When we head back to the US, I would like to pursue a new career that has been calling to me for years (nursing). This will involve going to school for about 2 years to do pre-reqs and get an accelerated BSN, full-time. I don't plan on looking for a job. We have a comfortable amount of savings and my husband will have his master's degree in Computer Science at this point.

Would we be denied entry back into the US as I will have been an expat for three years at that point and won't have a job in the US? I've kept a US credit card line and bank account open, and am registered in my permanent address at my parent's place in Connecticut. I've also kept my US driver's license and not switched it out for a German one because I don't want to have to switch it once we go back. Once he gets his visa, he would obviously work. My worry is that as his sponsoring spouse, I will have to work to bring him over. Has anyone gone through a similar process? What would be the best way to get us over there?

By that time, we will have been married for more than 2 years, which is good, but I'm a bit overwhelmed by what the best course of action here is. Moving to Germany with me as his wife was ridiculously simple. I don't even know where to start from here.
