Planning to move to Seattle, WA early next year with my H1. I know it's a great opportunity, but at the same time my worry is to leave my mom alone here at home. (Dad is no more and I'm a only child) I know once if she gets her B2 visa, I can take her there with me for 5-6 and then she has to be here for 3-4 months here in India. Theoretical it's feasible, but how much it's practically possible ? I know many might experienced this. Please advise

Kahi pohochne ke liye kahi se nikalna bht zaruri hota hai jokes apart I am a single child too. Divorced parents mom completely dependent on me and I'm planning my PR application so you have to make tough choices but just be emotionally there for your mom while you move the ladder of your career


I can understand this and I know a few people doing this. Not impossible but difficult to manage logistically. If your mom is relatively healthy and ok to travel it will be fine. It might also be worth discussing remote options with your work and trying to be more flexible so you can spend time at home while your mom waits it out in India. Best of luck!


Thank you for your valuable feedback
