Subtracting Time From Six Months

Posted date : Nov 13, 2017

I sit in dismay, having read your response re: subtracting time from six months. You say that a fewer-than-30-day return to Canada cannot be subtracted when calculating total days allowed in the U.S. We have spent three to six months every year since 1994, always coming home for Xmas.

You get what you pay for
