H4 ead while outside usa

May 1st 2016
My girlfriend was just approved for an h1b, we will be getting married soon so that I can get in on an h4 and work towards an ead, however in the mean time I will be continuing to work at my job in Canada. I currently work two weeks on, two weeks off in Canada, and visit her on my time off.
I was wondering if it will be possible to keep working at my job in Canada, and apply for an H4 and ead, while still traveling in and out of the US.

Can I go on B2 to USA while my H1B is in process

Mar 25th 2016

I need one advice.

I have a sponsor (consultancy company) who insists that after applying h1B visa (in April 2016) and once my petition is approved (i.e. selected in lottery) I should visit USA on my B2 visa (which is valid till May 2017) and try to get clients/job there. Once I get a job there, he then wants to file to "make amendments to change my B2 to H1B".

Q1) I am a little scared. Is this illegal?
Q2) If I do as he says, and go to USA on B2 once my H1b petition is approved,...

Transfer unused H1B to new employer, while on TN visa

Mar 17th 2016
Hi forum, I have the following situation:

I currently work for employer "A" in the U.S. using a TN visa. This april, employer "A" will file an application on my behalf for H1B. On the other hand, I've been talking to employer "B" and they might throw an offer, but would be after april, so they wouldn't be able to apply for an H1B for me this year.

Is the plan below feasible?

1. Change TN visa employer by either filing I-129 without leaving the U.S., or going to Mexico and issue a new TN...

Tax problem and H1B

Mar 15th 2016
I was previously on an H1B and left thinking that all my taxes were clear. However, a few years after leaving the US I found the IRS had taken some money from an account I left running in the US.
