Before You Move to the USA.

Congratulations on moving to the USA! Moving into a new country is an exciting time, but this transition also requires proper immigration paperwork, healthcare coverage, financial planning, tax planning and investment management.

All of this can seem overwhelming. At Transition Financial,
we have specialists to assist you in all stages of this exciting transition, from start to finish. Consult The Transition Toolbox before you move.

Immigration / Citizenship Planning

In order to live year round or work at any time in the US, you must have a valid visa, hold a Green Card or be a citizen of the US. If you are not a US citizen, your long-term objectives determine whether you should pursue a temporary work visa, a Green Card or citizenship because there are tax implications, healthcare, cost of living and lifestyle issues to consider. US citizenship and immigration planning requires a thorough analysis of your situation to determine the best strategy for you.

Identification

In order to work or live in the USA , everyone in your family must have a SSN (for those working) or an ITIN. The SSN will be required by your employer and is required to file a tax return. The ITIN is required for those who are not eligible to work in the US and allows you to reduce your taxes by claiming your spouse and children as dependents.
