I want to open an LLC but I will not be employed by it . I want a working bank account in the name of the LLC . I'm on my H4 visa . Is it legal ?
If you just want to establish a limited liability company, you are allowed to do so. However, you are not allowed to work for that LLC unless you get a proper employment authorization from USCIS.
