    So basically you just wasted a truck load of money and time on a K-1 and AOS fees, just to end up going home and losing the greencard again? Way to go

    Ruffie got a reaction from VanessaTony in Lose German Citizenship   
    German citizenship (by birth) is acquired solely through "jus sanguinis" (the law of the bloodline) versus "jus soli" (the law of the soil). Simply being born on German soil therefore doesn't make anybody a citizen and honestly, I'm glad it's that way. Maybe the U. S. should consider changing that part of its law, too... "Anchor babies", anyone?

    Ruffie got a reaction from BethandBilly in Going home to have a baby, is that possible?   
    Doesn't your husband have to work?? I don't know anybody who can take a year+ time off just like that. And you do know that your baby has to have a passport before you can fly to the States with it? I know people who waited almost 6 months for their baby's passport.
    Personally, I wouldn't do it. I had to move half way around the world with an 8 week old last year and it was no joke. Also, people always assume that everything will be perfectly fine. What if it's not? What if your baby has medical needs that won't make it possible to fly 10+ hours with him or her?
    Honestly, I would try to get better health insurance and do it all in the States. My maternity and post-partum care in CA was FAR from "the bare minimum".

    Last update from my side
    It was quite the experience... only THREE people total and we all thought, awesome, we'll be out of here in no time. But never underestimate the slowliness of DHS... They managed to drag things fromm 0830 to almost 1300
    Since there are NO electronics allowed to be brought into the consulate, they took pictures for us and will email them in the next few days.

And when I read the invitation, it mentioned guests, dress code and that it takes from 0830 until about 1300.... So I just emailed the lady again and - the oath will be done right after the test!!!!!!!

    So I gave in and finally called the military help line to check on my status My paperwork was received at Frankfurt Consulate on 28 February and I should be hearing from them within 30 days. The VERY nice person on the phone told me that our military mail addresses here are sometimes slow to receive mail (very true, unfortunately) and to maybe check back with the military help line to double-check the status and make sure I'm not missing an interview invitation because of it. I will also email the consulate again and make sure they still have my email address on file as well as our physical address in Germany so they can send an invitation there. I guess things ARE actually moving along... Wooot woot!

    Doesn't your husband have to work?? I don't know anybody who can take a year+ time off just like that. And you do know that your baby has to have a passport before you can fly to the States with it? I know people who waited almost 6 months for their baby's passport.
    Personally, I wouldn't do it. I had to move half way around the world with an 8 week old last year and it was no joke. Also, people always assume that everything will be perfectly fine. What if it's not? What if your baby has medical needs that won't make it possible to fly 10+ hours with him or her?
    Honestly, I would try to get better health insurance and do it all in the States. My maternity and post-partum care in CA was FAR from "the bare minimum".

    Doesn't your husband have to work?? I don't know anybody who can take a year+ time off just like that. And you do know that your baby has to have a passport before you can fly to the States with it? I know people who waited almost 6 months for their baby's passport.
    Personally, I wouldn't do it. I had to move half way around the world with an 8 week old last year and it was no joke. Also, people always assume that everything will be perfectly fine. What if it's not? What if your baby has medical needs that won't make it possible to fly 10+ hours with him or her?
    Honestly, I would try to get better health insurance and do it all in the States. My maternity and post-partum care in CA was FAR from "the bare minimum".

    Ruffie reacted to djamella in Lose German Citizenship   
    Hi, yes, your husband will defently loose his citizenship for germany. Germany is one of the few countries who DO NOT support dual citizenship.
    Yes, he can apply for it ... but for this he will have to proove that he has family-blood-line related ties in the USA!! Or if he owns land, lots of houses, a company etc that makes him need the citizenship in germany ... but even then its almost impossible that germany accepts it. For more info you can message me cause there is one way he can keep both .... greetings from Heidelberg.

    Ruffie got a reaction from Nica_In_Love in How much weight have you put on since moving to America?   
    Unfortunately I can't afford Kobe beef, but I'd prefer a good piece of Argentinian beef to US beef any time. I hate the quality of the meat in the US... pretty much every piece of beef, pork or chicken I ever threw in a pan there ended up watering all over the place. That's not good quality. The only thing I didn't have that problem with was lamb. Loved the lamb shoulder.
    And it took me forever to find good potatos, too. I don't like the white, "mealy" stuff you find everywhere. It always took me a while to get some "golden", firm potatos that actually tasted good without being drowned in gravy or sour cream, lol
