I am in the process of getting an M1 (vocational student) visa.
I would like to know if I can work while I have this visa, if yes, for how long?
How much will it cost for an attorney to help me with the visa process and how long will it take?
I am currently in Seattle.
No, you can't work until after graduation: https://www.uscis.gov/working-united-states/students-and-exchange-visitors/students-and-employment
