  • How difficult is it to change employer on an O1 visa?

    I'm currently on an O1 visa and have found a new employer that I would like to work for. On the USCIS O1 website, it says the following: "If you are an O-1 nonimmigrant in the United States and you want to change employers, then your new ...

    Evelyn’s Answer

    Yes, you will need to go through the O-1 petition process again in its entirety. If you have access to a copy of your previous file and you are applying in the same category of extraordinary ability, that will take care of a major component of the filing, but your employer may still require legal assistance in compiling the other aspects of the application. Successfully meeting the requirements of the O-1 once does improve the likelihood that your petition will be granted again, but it by no means a guarantee, and the USCIS could always issue RFE's if they deem that additional information is required for processing the petition.

  • My family is trying to dissolve a llc . They say I have to sign but I discovered only a majority needs to sign off

    They say I have to sign dissolution agreement because it is part of their estate plan. They transfered the property out of this llc and transfered over 50 percent of it into a irrevocable trust then transfered it into a new llc.

    Evelyn’s Answer

    I agree. The operating agreement will specify the percentage interest required for a dissolution of the company.

  • Should I consult an Atty before creating an LLC?

    I've been offered the opportunity to work as an independent contractor, for very long contracts, by 2 different companies. It seems like creating an LLC would be a good idea if I am going to accept these opportunities. I know how to file the paper...

    Evelyn’s Answer

    I agree with the previous answers. You should consult an attorney AND a tax professional prior to getting started. If you have never had your own business before, you want to make sure you receive accurate information regarding the additional tax and state filing responsibilities you will be undertaking.

    It's best to find someone near Tempe in case there are any type of local registrations (like city business tax) that you would also need to take care of/be responsible for.

    Good luck!

  • I'm in escrow. Due to a low appraisal the seller wants to sell for that price but have us pay for a large issue and closing cost

    There are two lots that share the same water meter. The seller wants us to pay to separate the meters and install a new meter for the other lot.

    Evelyn’s Answer

    This is the seller's issue - it shouldn't be your obligation. There may also be issues with adequate and accurate disclosures being made initially. That being said, this is also a negotiation point and your Realtor should make the effort to work out a compromise or resolution.

    Evelyn’s Answer

    You will need to file the new employer to file a new LCA for the position. Once you have the approved LCA back, you can then proceed with the I-129 filing to add the additional employer. Note that your filing to the USCIS will need to be complete with copies of your bachelors degree and current paystubs from your current employer (to ensure that you meet the requirements of the E-3 and are not out of status). Also note that you're not able to start working at the new job until you get the approval from the USCIS.

  • I'm forming an LLC to hold title of a real estate, which LLC classification should I use???

    I'm forming an LLC to hold title of a real estate, which LLC classification should I use in this case??? Like when I opened my painting company, it was classified under home improvement contractor. Now once the new company will only hold ...

    Evelyn’s Answer

    If you're conducting rental and leasing under the LLC name, consider a similar category.
    You will definitely need an EIN - a taxpayer ID for your LLC will allow you to be able to open a bank account for the LLC and also file tax returns when the time comes.

    As far as any local tax issues, your best bet would be to speak with an accountant/tax professional in your state to determine what would be required there.

    Good luck!

    Evelyn’s Answer

    I agree with the attorneys who have answered previously. Placing the rental in an LLC would provide another layer of asset protection in addition to the appropriate insurance coverage.
