I am currently holding an O-1 employer-employee visa until the middle of May and considering to change employer. My question is, I prefer to apply an O-1 agent application for my flexibility of work but someone told me it will be a problem if I st...
The 'someone' you spoke to makes a good point ... agents traditionally won't sponsor greencards.
NOTE: You can have an agent O ... while a future 'permanent' employer is processing greencard papers in the background ... you do NOT need to be currently working for the company that sponsors the greencard.See question
My sister (spouse) was petitioned by a US citizen. The case was sent to US consulate for interview from NVC almost a year ago. However, during the medical examination before the interview date they discovered she has some medical condition and has...
There is no withdrawal form .... he can send an e-mail, or a letter.
One way to find out is to try to re-schedule the appointment and go to it. If they don't say that it was withdrawn, then they'll probably give her the visa and she can enter the US.
BUT .... here's the catch ... if they will have been married for less than 2 years when she enters the US ... she'll have to file more papers. If she enters after they've been married for 2 years, she will have an unrestricted greencard and won't have to stay with him, nor stay married.
Perhaps this medical condition and delay of the appointment is good ... pushing them closer to their 2nd wedding anniversary.See question
Hi, My EB2-NIW case is pending and I got my EAD. I know I can change employers. It seems as though the new job has to be in the same field, similarly to the AC21 rule for non self petitioned cases. What does this mean: 1) For how long do I have...
1. I recommend a reasonable period AFTER the card arrives ... yes, 6 months would be the minimum.
2. Yes, once the card arrives you can have a side job.
3. "Forced" to work? No, but 'should' you work for that 6 month period after the card arrives? Yes
4. Actually I will answer it .... yes, once you become a US citizen you are 'free' of the US CIS.
I travel a lot internationally for my job, sometimes up to 4x in a month. My green card was renewed last year, it took around 7 months. I lost it 2 months later. :'( For the last couple months I have been using 1-551 stamp that I received during m...
The re-entry permit won't solve your lost greencard problem ... they'll still put you into secondary if you don't have the card ... technically there is a financial penalty for not having your card on you at all times.
I don't know where you got the 2 month time frame for an re-entry permit ... hopefully not on the inaccurate CIS website. 3-5 is more accurate.See question
During my h1b interview in first week of Feb-2017 I received 221g and asked to provide more documents of my employer. e.g employee list/employer taxes/internal project detail etc. They kept all my docs along with new and old passports. I submit...
Don't waste time checking online ... that system is constantly breaking and inaccurate. All you can do is wait.See question
I arrived in the US on Jun 2015 with a F1 visa from school A allowing me to stay for 1 year. In Dec 2015 I moved to school B and attended it until June 2016 without changing my status (without letting school A know about it). From june 2016 to oct...
How in the world didn't school A know that you weren't attending class & paying tuition?
Although as my colleague stated, you didn't 'overstay' since there are special rules for students, you didn't overstay.
Still, I'm uncomfortable with you saying no. In some ways, it is better to say yes and explain yourself ... letting the officer tell you about the special rules.See question
Hi. I obtained a green card under F2B category with 245i. I am a South Korean with NO criminal history. Lots of people have been having issues with the new immigration executive orders these days. Is it true that even green card holders canno...

You say you're in valid F-1 status but your visa is expired. The visa sticker isn't important as long as you have a valid I-20 ... chance of denial of entry into Canada? Herd to say .. talk to an attorney in private.See question
