[Comments] (6) Taking The NYC Out Of NYCB: Yes, it's true. We are moving to England in a couple weeks and staying for about a year. If you want to see us before we leave, now would be an excellent time to leave a comment or email me! Unless you live in England, in which case you should just wait a bit.

Your third sentence there induced a sudden anxious need to visit you guys, but then I realized that this just increases the likelihood of my visiting England in the next year rather than decreasing my odds of seeing you. Good luck!

Ah, fellow dependent visa-holder! Just beware, there are a number of bizarre situations where the law will still assume that you're a housewife who wants to work part-time at a flower shop or something. The system isn't set up to handle skilled dependents very well (fortunately it only matters in a few odd situations).

Tell me more of these "odd situations"!

Well they're mostly involved when you want to get some independence and move to a Highly Skilled Migrant Programmamy visa (it's changed names since). Everyone looks at you like you've got a bird on your head, because HEY MISTER IF YOU ARE SO HIGHLY SKILLED THEN WHY ARE YOU DEPENDENT??? HUH? ANSWER ME THAT ONE TOUGH GUY!

But if you're genuninely doing a temporary secondment sort of thing and have no plans to stick around, you shouldn't run into any of this rot.
