Hey.. im currently getting married soon.. because I found out I am pregnant with my irish boyfriends baby, so now we're going to marry and file adjustment to stay here with me and the baby and begin a life that we never intended...

now im confused I am 6-8weeks pregnant+ and my father had me on his insurance so I can goto the doctors every so often but now our insurance does not cover it and im not sure what to do? im forced to goto DSS to receive my treatment and appointments during my pregnancy. but I was told by a few people that if im married then I wont receive any help from them??

so it leaves me with, my boyfriend goes home and I go out my pregnancy without him and get treatment then he comes back after I have my baby, or he stays and we file papers and I receive no treatment??

or could we get married in a different county/state could we then get treatment from DSS in the county im currently in if I marry elsewhere? for example

(living in NC, Marries in SC/ gets treatment in NC)

im I wrong or right what should and could I do??

thanks, sorry if this is in the wrong area not sure where to post this..

I'm Hannah & I'm from NC! MY husband is Nico & he's from Northern Ireland.

My husband entered the US on the VWP December 14, 2014, and I found out I was pregnant not long after arriving back home from N. Ireland. (I was visiting him there, and he came back home with me to visit and spend Xmas/his bday with me.)

We decided to get married Jan 16, 2015 as it was the right thing to do and I love him very much. (L):luv:

Feb 10, 2015 we sent away our AOS package containing i-485, 1-765, i-130, i-864, i-864a.

Feb 23, 2015 USCIS texted/emailed me saying the case was received.

Feb 28, 2015 USCIS mailed us

March 11, 2015 we received a RFE for the i-485.

April 6, 2015 husband went to biometrics.

April 14, 2015 we sent away the RFE and information requested.

June 24, 2015 went for our interview

Green card received in July!

Baby Caicey Andrea born 8/1/15 (L) (F)(L)

OP can I assume you are under 26 years old? If so read the following, because you should still be covered under your parents policy but your boyfriend/fiancé will not be):

Providing Relief for Young Adults

The Affordable Care Act requires plans and issuers that offer coverage to children on their parents' plan to make the coverage available until the adult child reaches the age of 26. Many parents and their children who worried about losing health insurance after the children moved away from home or graduated from college no longer need to worry.

The Departments of Health and Human Services, Labor, and Treasury have issued regulations implementing the Affordable Care Act by expanding dependent coverage for adult children up to age 26. Key elements include:

  • Coverage Extended to More Children. The goal of this new policy is to cover as many young adults under the age of 26 as possible with the least burden. Plans and issuers that offer dependent coverage must offer coverage to enrollees' adult children until age 26, even if the young adult no longer lives with his or her parents, is not a dependent on a parent's tax return, or is no longer a student. There is a transition for certain existing group plans that generally do not have to provide dependent coverage until 2014 if the adult child has another offer of employer-based coverage aside from coverage through the parent. The new policy providing access for young adults applies to both married and unmarried children, although their own spouses and children do not qualify.
