I graduated about 6 months from an auto mechanic school! I am very happy. However, my adjustment of status application is pending along with my authorization to work. I had to make several corrections on the application and now USCIS sent me a receipt saying it is in process and they cashed my check. Meanwhile, I was recently approached for a job by a mechanic who needs help, and he told me that he can hire me as an independent contractor. My student loan payments are about to start in September 2012, and I need to make some money to pay that down. Since I am married to a US citizen and I applied the adjustment of status and authorization to work, how would I be impacted if I elect to work as an independent contractor? Technically, as an independent contractor, I would not be "employed."
