For case-by-case consideration of what YOU should do, please put your questions in an Introductions topic.   Do not put those questions in this topic, because detailed discussion of YOUR particular circumstances will take it off track and make this topic difficult for others to follow. The moderators will move any questions about YOUR particular case to the Introductions forum. Thank you.   Also see Stabil
