First of all I would like to sorry if these questions were asked before.
I am a winner of the "Diversity Visa Lottery 2014". I entered the U.S. on the beginning of Jan., 2015. I have not yet received the plastic "green card", however my case is "in process". After a few days I would like to visit my home country. Thus, I will leave the U.S. without the plastic card. I know that the immigrant visa, stamped at a POE, should be fine to re-enter the U.S. However, I would like to ask you if I have to inform USCIS about my physical address abroad? If yes, how to do that?
We know that, if you are a LPR, you are "required to file your income tax returns and report your income to the U.S. Internal Revenue Service and state taxing authorities". Do I have to declare my incomes and file a form about the income tax returns during the period Jan. 1, 2014 - Dec. 31, 2014, if I became a LPR on the 1st of Jan., 2015 or later?
No it's not the correct thread and the question has been asked and answered numerous times. The U.S. is not a police state. Once you have an immigrant visa you can go to any of the 50 states you choose.
I am an older member of this forum and helped me and my wife a lot after we found out we won at the DV Lottery. My wife ( Andreea Seciu) actually was more active during that time. We won in Romania in 2013 and in 27 September 2014 we landed on American land, in Philadelphia. We have a friend that was in US for 10 years and he helped us a lot and he is still helping us. Because this forum helped us a lot I made a promise that I will do my best to help other after I arrive here. With that in mind we decided to start a blog where we post our experience in US as a DV Lottery Visa. We are writing only about things that we actually live or experienced. The blog is not for commercial purpose in case anyone suspect us of free publicity. For the English version you have to scroll down the page ( first is the Romanian version). If you have any question we will answer them gladly.

The USCIS manual is consistent with general expectations of a child gaining automatic citizenship.
I recall reading somewhere I. this forum a bout a lady who had a applied for the DVD program and the mother is a us citizen. Maybe I din't read it too keenly.
Not sure this was explained before in some other thread but I need to know whether shots (immunizations) for infants are offered free at any (or selected) health center in USA. If not, does the child need to have health insurance of his own or my job health insurance can cover him (I´ve heard the latter option even for jobless spouse).
