  1. Tax return after working in France and Germany

    Hello Panda, its been a while since I needed your help but it is because I found almost all the info needed in the previous posts. So that you again :)
  2. What do you do when you feel down or anxious?

      Well I don't have all the facts for shure but just to say, not having sex with you does not mean necessarily he is gay. Just uninterested with sex with you. Could be asexual, gay, getting sex elsewhere, depressed, prefer other types of sexual releases etc. No?
  3. Wonderful Chicken Pox!

    Oh wow! My appologies. I stand corrected anaphylaxis is so rare I dismissed it. I am sorry it happened to your mom and it was not treated in time to limit damage.
  4. Wonderful Chicken Pox!

      I am sorry your mum has a health condition that coincided with the shingles vaccine but please in these times of antivac it would be great not to write such things. The vaccine is safe, there is plenty of evidence available to that (same as for the hepatitis vaccine which has been proven not to cause MS multiple times) Your case of shingles was not bad and I am happy for that but some people have repeating episodes that are very painful and react poorly to medecine. My mom is now on her 3rd outbreak, the last one lasted about 6 month and she gave chickenpox to my son who had only partial vaccination at the time.
  5. Wonderful Chicken Pox!

      Actually if you manage not to get chicken pox for your entire life you will not get shingles. On the other hand if you had chicken pox shingles is just waiting to get you. This is the whole point about getting the chicken pox vaccine for your kids and getting the shingles vaccine when you get oldish if you had chickenpox.  Chickenpox, outside of the maddening itch and the scars is fairly benign, as opposed to measles.  
  6. Thank you all. Does anybody know a lawyer specialized in employment law? I'm not sure if there is any point getting legal insurance now as the events are already taking place therefore it is unlikely to be covered.  
  7. I would like an expert to tell me how I should document stuffs and what I should expect if I decide to take legal action. It is not correct that a company will fire somebody because they took legal action. They can only terminate you for grounds, they can make your life unconfortable but fire you is really unlikely.   I am asking for an expert recommendation here. 
  8. Hello All,   For the last 4 years my management has been treating me in a way I consider unethical. Luckily my company has an active Betriebstraatt and they have helped some but this situation has taken a toll. I should be getting a new job but my son is at the company's kita and none of my application to the other 17 kita I tried has come through. As a single mom no chilcare means no job so let's assume I am stuck at this place of employment for about 2 years longer.   I would like to secure legal advice about my situation, how to document, is this considered mobbing, how can I defend myself, what should I expect? Do you guys know any resource? My german is poor but I get myself understood mostly.
  9. Hello All,   Just wondering if some of you may have experience in the matter, the US consulate is not very helpful in this matter as it seems they are just saying 'come apply and we will see'.   I have lived in the US for 10 years total but only 2 of those years as a US citizen. In order for my child to be an american I need to prove 5 years physical presence but is this AFTER I became a US citizen or anytime?   The wording is :"Proof that the US citizen parent lived in the U.S. long enough to transmit citizenship to her/his child." (in this case 5 years)   From the whole page, I tend to believe if it is not explicitly excluded but, in terms of naturalization in the US having gone through it once for myself I am a bit more cautious than usual :)
