Legal Answers
5 Questions Answered
Q. Can International Students Open an LLC in the state of texas?
A: First consult a TX business lawyer regarding non-citizens owning an LLC. F-1 student visa will only allow very passive involvement, and you cannot draw a salary or profit from the LLC. There are options through an LLC to petition for it's owner but it depends on the employment-authorized based category, job description and other factors which an immigration lawyer needs to review before advising on eligibility.
Q. I filed for asylum on time within six months of entry to the United States. Can I accept an H1B offer from an employer?
A: Filing for asylum does not provide legal status in the United States. How did you enter the U.S. legally with visa or illegally? Are you in affirmative or defensive asylum proceedings? To change status while in the United States, you need to have status. Since an asylum application is not status you are not eligible to adjudicate an H-1B through USCIS Department of Homeland Security. However, if in addition to an asylum application you have a valid visa, there are options for you to apply for H-1B status successfully through either a U.S. consulate abroad (not in the country you fear persecution), and USCIS may adjudicate your case depending on if you met the rules of timely bridging status. A immigration lawyer would need to provide this complex analysis and guide you through navigating both asylum and H-1B laws. H-1B visas are dual intent visas meaning you may have both immigrant and non-immigrant intent in proceeding with asylum and H-1B application if you're eligible. ... Read More
Q. Is it considered unauthorized work on OPT if I performed the same work in my home country but volunteer in the US?
A: The short answer is yes. This work is unauthorized. A company or individual cannot have you work voluntarily. Federal regulations are strict for F-1 OPT work authorization while living and working in the United States. The proximity of home country is not relevant.
