Good night, I am currently working under my opt and my company is willing to process my h1b, i am currently married to a us citizen but we live in different states due to work. Will being married to a U.S citizen jeopardize my chances of getting my h1b?
No. H-1B is a "dual intent" visa, i.e. both immigrant and non-immigrant in a sense, meaning that although H-1B is only a non-immigrant visa, you can still harbor immigrant intent at the same time. But ultimately the best avenue may be your marriage to a US citizen "if" this is a bona fide marriage despite being a commmuter marriage.
