Hi there! It sounds from your account as though you may have options, particularly if you never after arriving left the U.S., only have one unlawful entry and no criminal record. You really should promptly consult in person with a reputable immigration attorney to explore these options. As someone who was brought here as a child, you may explore DACA, which is still law. and if you marry a U.S. citizen you may be eligible for an unlawful presence waiver (but these eligibilities may change under the new administration so I urge you to consider exploring your eligibility with an immigration lawyer quickly). Best wishes. - GBSee question

I am in H-1B status. I rented out a 2 bed room apartment from a land lord. However, I want to host guests in my second room through Airbnb 3-5 days a month and make an income of $30 per night. Is this legal being under H-1B?

Having an immigration lawyer represent you in your case under the circumstances is of the utmost importance. Waivers are highly complex and need the attention of a specialist. If a person knows they need a waiver they can generally file them together with a petition.See question

If your country agreed to issue a NOL, there is no reason why any other method should be better. This is a relatively clean and quick way to get around the 2 year home requirement without having to actually file a waiver per se. Having a divorce and an employment offer lined up do not by themselves allow you to waive the 2-year requirement. I would advise you always work directly with an immigration attorney on any and all immigration-related matters. Best wishes - GB.See question
