TN status from Contractor to Full Time

8 hours 9 min ago
One of our contractors has been offered a full time position. She is currently on a TN with the contracting company. She has it valid until 2019. Does she require a new TN if the company or work location does not change, but just the pay processing is through the actual company, rather than the contracting firm.
Many of us are waiting for full time opportunities and this may help us also in the future. Thank you for your help and advise.

How to pay for I-130 from abroad?

12 hours 52 min ago
I am a US citizen married to an Italian citizen. We currently live in Italy, and we are trying to start the process to obtain a green card for my husband, as I got a job in the US that starts in February. I have prepared all the documentation for the I-130, but it is unclear how we pay. The USCIS website and the Rome field office website state that we can pay using a credit card, but how exactly do we do that? Do I write my credit card information on a piece of paper and say that I confirm...

US Passport validity for India travel

Jun 24th 2017
Hi,

I realized that my son's US passport is expiring on Nov 14, 2017. We are planning to travel to India from ~ Jul 15 to Aug 11. Can he travel to India and fly back to USA on these dates; or does his passport need to be valid for 6 months from date of travel?

If the passport needs to be renewed, do you know how soon I will be able to get the new passport? Also while booking the air tickets, would the agent/airline ask for passport number, and would it be issue if the passport number...

B2 - rejected twice

Jun 23rd 2017
Hi Guys,

Need help on this. It's lenghy but to provide complete scinario.

Last year, My Mom (46 years old) was issued 10 years Visitor visa (multiple entry) at Mumbai, in April/May 2002, based on all the required documents attached to her application. She is a housewife. She visited me here, from May to November 2002.

Did the N400 filing address change?

Jun 22nd 2017
Hello,
My spouse and I sent in our application on June 14, but noticed right after we sent it that the N400 address has changed on the website - now the folks on the Northeast (where I am) need to send in the application at the Pheonix office, and the west coast folks have to send it in to the Dallas office.

Has anyone else noticed this? The reason we checked is that USPS has lost my package, and now I have to send in a new one (their tracking software is showing it "in transit" for the...

When I was 20, I had a minor in consumption offense (e.g., drinking underage). I am now in my mid-20s. The charge was later dismissed through the assistance of a lawyer. How can we know whether the following questions on the U.S. citizenship application are true or not?

1) Have you EVER committed, assisted in committing, or attempted to commit, a crime or offense for which you were NOT arrested? [Here, I originally pled guilty, but the charge was later dismissed. Does this mean the crime...

Master of Science in Business Analytics

Jun 22nd 2017
Hi guys,

If I get a degree in Master of Science in Business Analytics, which is a STEM degree similar to Master of Science in Data Science, and I have a job offer in something like business analyst/data analyst/data engineer, is there a TN visa category that this would be a good fit?

My bachelor is in Computer Engineering, if that makes any difference.

Thanks.

Multiple TN statuses, or have I made an error?

Jun 22nd 2017
In this scenario are Companies A (small), B (small), and C (large). Strong existing relationship with Company A, have already worked there on TN status previously.

Apr 2016 - Cross-Atlantic travel, not sure why, but new TN stamp upon re-entry (exp Apr 2018). Airport re-entry, so no paper I-94 to currently consult.

Revalidating I-94

Jun 21st 2017
FIXING I-94 ERRORS

I am not sure how I should approach this issue. Here is my situation:

My H1-B visa expires 12/DD/2005. (I have visa stamped in my passport until that date)
My Indian passport expires 04/DD/2004.

I returned from a short vacation to India in mid-July. The Immigration officer at SFO airport told me that although I have a valid visa until 12/2005, but since my passport expires in 04/2004, he can only validate (Admit Until) my I-94 until 04/DD/2004. He said that...

Can green card holder be deported for lying on reentry to country?

Jun 20th 2017
Hope you can give me advice on my situation. I have a green card based on marriage, but I am in the first stages of divorce from my U.S. wife. We have not yet filed, but there is a lot of tension and I am worried what my wife might do and whether she could get me deported.

We have been married for 15 years (married in the US) but separated for 6. We moved to my country 8 years ago, when I guess I should have surrendered my green card because I didn't intend to return. But I held onto it...
