  1. Canadian prescriptions are not honored in the US. Suggest you go to a psychiatrist when you get to the US. A psychiatrist might be more sympathetic. A general practitioner may be unwilling to prescribe a medication with know addiction potential to a stranger. Adderall is heavily abused in the US, and is a DEA Schedule II drug---along with cocaine, Vicodin, Fentanyl and oxycodone! https://www.dea.gov/drug-scheduling
  2. Get the vaccines. Chickenpox can permanently scar your face, and the flu can kill you.

    Taking a Cruise

    Do you understand that your wife was then still a legal US resident, but that OP is an illegal resident with a deferred status from being deported?
  4. This will only be the beginning of major problems with her name in the US. Consider having her use an American name format which uses her first name.
  5. Your husband should pay the bill 100% first.

    Taking a Cruise

    So you're not planning to get off the boat for the entire cruise? 🤐
  7. If you do that, looks like you'll be filing income taxes for both countries: http://taxsummaries.pwc.com/ID/Ghana-Individual-Taxes-on-personal-income
  8. According to this, the "notice" is not enough for FAFSA: "You are NOT an eligible noncitizen and cannot receive federal student aid if you have only a “Notice of Approval to Apply for Permanent Residence” (I-171 or I-464)," https://studentaid.ed.gov/sa/eligibility/non-us-citizens However, even having a green card in hand does not mean you can pay resident tuition rates. US Residency and in-state residency for tuition purposes are two different things. Public colleges usually require 1-year residency in their state, proved by drivers license, filing a tax return in that state, proof of financial independence from parents, utility bills and rent receipts in your name, vehicle registration, etc. Private colleges have their own rules and may give you financial aid. You can also get a bank loan if you have collateral and good credit.
  9. No!...There is no more Advance Parole being issued for DACA recipients. They can leave at any time, but they can't return to the US.
  10. Sorry, but can you rewrite the question in better English? It's hard to know what you are asking.

    Uncertain time frame?

    And get yourself tested...TB is contagious, and there are more and more drug-resistant strains

    Estimated Tax Payments

    Is he self-employed or an independent contractor (not an employee)? If so, the estimated payment for the last quarter of 2018 (the time he was working in the US) is due January 15th. If he is an employee, he just files standard taxes by April 15th.
  13. So let me get this straight...you say you want to help him move and then you'll just just leave him--even though he has no caregivers--and go back to your country?
  14. Note that being a "US resident" is not the same as being a "state resident" for tuition purposes. Usually state residency for colleges takes a minimum of 1 year after arrival in the US and needs to be proved with state identification like a drivers license, name on utility bills, bank accounts, etc. So your wife will need to wait to attend college, unless you can afford to pay the very expensive non-resident tuition.
  15. Wall heaters are only found in older houses; newer houses have central heating. Unless the house is made of brick (not common in more temperate areas of the US) wall heaters can be fire hazards.
