Can a H1B visa holder work part-time in a music school?

Asked over 3 years ago - San Jose, CA

Is it legal for a person holding H1B visa to work part-time in a music school and get paid? My husband holds a H1B and works in an IT company. Can he also work part-time in a music school ? Is it legal if he does that and pays the tax for his part-time income also?

    Answered . Your husband can get a concurrent H-1B visa for part time work. I have processed part time H-1B visas. I would suggest your husband confer with an immigration attorney. My offices are in Sunnyvale.
