I am a foreigner working with H1B visa. I have a non-compete clause in my contract. It states that my company has an obligation to pay me as long as I don't work for competitor. If I quit my job and transfer to H4 (my wife works under H1B too), can I still get those payments?

I recommend setting up an appointment with an employment law immigration attorney to discuss further
