I did. It put food on the table when there was NO income.

Pending legal issues may have an impact on "good moral standing".
I had no choice but to leave. I wasn't allowed to work in the US with any other company. You weren't in my situation so refrain from the particuliars. They can use all the "leagal" means they want but you can't get blood from a stone. I've already stated that I intend to meet my obligations with my debtors but that day will have to wait. I'd only move back to the US with a pending job offer and way to repay the leon. Citizen apps will be null and void if that does not happen

Contrary to your opinion - you can get blood from a stone when the stone wants something.
Your particulars are of no personal interest to me. That you have apparently made no attempt to deal with your obligations and are still putting them on hold until something happens does not show a lot of responsibility in my book. An employer will run a credit history on you and then?

Wow! So if my "particulars are of no personal interest" to you why are even bothering with this topic? I am not here to get your approval on my personal level of responsibility and you have no idea of what I have gone through. Obviously you are missing the boat here. And BTW, My credit report would only become applicable "if" I returned to the US. Unless you have anything constructive to add, then take a hike!

Well Threestep, after reading some of your posts, it sounds like you have an axe to grind with a certain country to the north?

I don't know about the USA but I know in Europe if you have unpaid taxes and/or tickets, you can and will be arrested at the border and released when you paid it off.

I know from years ago that my boss was arrested at Schiphol airport coming back from a nice vacation in Spain and had unpaid tickets....

The answer is it might stop entry. Part of the requirment to enter the US is that you will not become a burden to the US governement or citizens. having a past debt that was not paid isn;t good. having moved to another country after racking up the debt looks like you fled to avoid paying it and left the us company holding the bag. If the debt was reported and that info was picked up by immigrations, you can be refused entry to the US and sent back. I dont think you will be arrested because its a civil matter (unless some criminal charges against you were filed about it) but it goes to your character which could be used to deny entry.

Debt is not reported to US Immigration, its a civil matter not a criminal matter if the original poster had a drug possesion or DUI of course it would be a problem. as She stated she could not work for another company in the USA and returned to Canada.

Similar question - if US citizen, left with US cc debt and it's 14 years later and I want to go visit (moved to Canada) - ok so no hassles at the border, and as long as I don't apply for credit then the visit should be fine? What happens with that debt - you say it doesn't go away, but how would they know I'm there to visit - they would know if I reapply for anything right?
