Legal Answers
383 Questions Answered
Q. Can the minor child (17) of someone currently on a work visa waiting to receive their green card work legally in the US?
A: Not this summer. The daughter must be a derivative beneficiary. That is, she must be able to qualify for adjustment of status based upon her mom’s current immigrant visa. This requires an understanding of how the current visa bulletin works. I strongly recommend an appointment with a competent and experienced immigration attorney before there are any other complications. The above is general information, not legal advice, and does not create an attorney client relationship.
Q. What are the options to work and stay in the country apart from H1B Visa?
A: The decision in the 1990s not to make permanent, the 200,000 visa cap pretty much created the professional work visa mess of the 2000s. Most will find the road to seeking a work visa cost ineffective. There may be other visa options for some, but not for others. As a result, I strongly recommend an appointment or teleconference with a competent and experienced immigration attorney before there are any other complications.
Q. Awaiting marriage-based i751+citizenship approvals. Lost job yesterday. Should I avoid asking for EDD/Foodstamps/else?
A: The issue is different at this point, but can create complications. Are you living with your wife? Are you having a relationship? If your wife is employed, then the issue is whether you actually qualify to accept benefits. Are you committing fraud by accepting benefits that you are not lawfully entitled to, which if proven may be criminal? If you accept means tested benefits that you are not entitled to, then you may lack good moral character. Your actions may also suggest that you are not being supported by your employed wife. If you are now physically separated from your wife, then you should seek advice from a competent and experienced immigration attorney before there are any other complications. Good luck.
