  1. Hi all! I’m new here. I’m a 28 gay American from California. I’ve been married for 10 months to my Moldovan husband. I did a 2 year service program and met him in the capital. We dated 3 months after I got there and dated ever since. We got married after my service July 2019. I then started working an international job within East Africa, so we became long and internationally distant. We see each other every 3-4 months and for major holidays, but it’s still very tough. As of January, he’s now working in the UK to earn money for the process. Due to COVID, I’m now here with him teleworking. Here’s our case. I started my job aug 2019. I’ve been saving most of my paycheck since then. I now have about $15,000 saved. I believe I read that we need about $20,000 since it’s only 2 of us. Correct me if I’m wrong. It’s supposed to %125 above the povertyguidelines of housing rate. I found a lawyer, but don’t know entirely how much she’ll charge as we haven’t used her services yet. We’re supposed to be starting the process in June, but I don’t know the likelihood of it now. Plus,I’m worried about the cost draining our process money even though we’re still working. Am I just being paranoid? I also read that I need to have a home back in the states before the interview. I was hoping to have either a dorm or apartment as I’m wanting to attend grad school fall 2021. If this doesn’t count, I’m not sure what to do because I live and work internationally. Anyway, my jobs contract ends in Aug 2021 if I decide to not stay with my job. My plan is to save as much money as possible from 2019-2021. Then return to grad school. I was hoping to have all my ducks in a row, a passed consular interview, and a visa for him by the time I left for school, so he could arrive with me. Doing a process while in grad school would be too stressful & exhausting, so I’d like to complete it beforehand. p.s. I’ve been trying to find a work from home job to earn more money for us. Does anyone have a similar experience? Any advice or suggestions. The future stresses me out so much and I’m very much a planner.
  2. Hi all! I'm new here. Also, a newlywed. A little background about us: My husband and I met in the Republic of Moldova when I was a Peace Corps Volunteer in October 2017. We continued to date for 22 months and decided to get married. After I finished my Peace Corps service, we got married that next week: July 31, 2019, on Aero Island, Denmark. Now that we’re married, we are currently saving up money for the immigration process. Him and I are both abroad, but long distance from each other. He’s in Moldova until next year and he’ll be working in the UK or Ireland. He does have a Romanian ID and is currently getting his Romanian Passport. I am working in different African countries for the next 2 years. We’ll see each-other this December and then every 3-4 months afterwards. The problem(s) is/are, I'm not sure if I should get a lawyer or not. I received mix information from people who have gone through this process. I have found a lawyer, but have yet to pay for her service as I am waiting. The second issue is that I'm not sure how to time this process. My job is a 2 year term(Aug 2021) and if I am wanting to stay on with the organization, something can be arranged. My higher ups expressed that positions will available by the time I finish my term. However, my main goal is to attend graduate school once my term is done, but I want my husband's immigration process to be approved in order to come back with me. I've heard the process can range from a year to 15 months or even longer. To summarize my questions/concerns; Is it better to hire a lawyer or go with out? And when should I start the process in order to bring my husband over after my completed work term/ Graduate school start date? Thank you in advance, Very Respectfully, Unstoppable02
