Last week I received my green card after 10 years of wait. My employer and attorney asked me to send front and back photocopy of my card which I promptly did without thinking much. Is this normal for employer or attorney to ask? Should I be concerned?

OP is correct—this is standard I-9 compliance, and to confirm USCIS didn’t make any errors on the actual green card. They’re just making sure there are no issues that could impact your status.

How did you set your rent budget when moving in with a partner? I make £125k base (£167k inc bonus), and my boyfriend makes £95k base (£105k inc bonus). I’m used to allocating 30% of my take-home pay to rent, which is about £1800/mo for a charming neighbourhood in zone 1, but my bf’s used to paying closer to £1000/mo to live in zone 6 and balks at the rent prices I think are reasonable given our incomes and locations we want (zone 2). We both wfh so ideally want a 3BR. (Continued in comments)
