I don't wanna have two cases . I need some help please. Thanks

1099-K affect Green Card (I-485, G-325a)

Feb 2nd 2017
Hello folks.

I have faced with some problem. I worked 2 months on Uber on L1b visa in 2016 year. As far I know it is illegal, but It is just 60 days after work. I have got 1099-K.

My company is going to apply Green Card (EB2 or EB3) for me and they asked to provide my tax information (W2, 1040 and schedule C).

How can I resolve this problem? Who has faced with same problem and got Green Card? Could you advise attorney who already resolved this problem?

I reentered to USA 2 weeks ago...

TN through mail

Jan 31st 2017
I want to apply TN through mail, my new employer never applied TN for any employee, so my first question is do I apply TN through mail by myself, If Yes then what will be the process?

Also for some reason if my new TN got rejected, then still the current TN will be applicable? and I can still work with my current employer or not? as still my current TN valid for next 2 years.

So if new TN got rejected , do this impact the current TN or not?

Thanks

Jan 31st 2017
Hello Everyone,
This is my first post, so please forgive me if I made any mistakes in posting these questions. I and my family got our visas last December and we arrived at JFK airport on Sunday evening. We went to Social Security Administration today to see if we can apply for SSN card, but the representative at the SSA office in the state of Maryland told us that we need to wait at least 10 days before we could apply for SSN. She also advised us to print out our I-94 record. We checked the...

F1 student also a derivative beneficiary of Green card - 204 I situation

Jan 31st 2017
Thanks in advance for the help. I (primary petitioner) applied for GC for my sister(primary beneficiary), while the application was pending, she died tragically in a road accident. When I had applied, I had added her son (my nephew) who was a minor, as a derivative beneficiary. Later, I updated USCIS with the fact that she had died and requested that they keep the petition alive. They declined saying she was not present in US at the time of her death(!). Heartbroken, I left it at that....

Approved I-140. Left USA 5 years ago. Can I port the priority date

Jan 31st 2017
Hi All,
I entered US in Jan 2008 and was working as Programmer Analyst till 2011 when I received my Canadian PR and I decided to move to Canada. I had approved I-140 at that time. I resigned from my job and left for Canada. If I remember correctly, my employer did revoke my I-140 as I resigned. I left in very good terms with them.

My priority date for my GC file was June 2009, under EB2. If i decide to go back to US, what are my options? Can I port my priority date to a GC file from new...

Renewing TN by Mail - Driver License Issue

Jan 31st 2017
As mentioned on this thread, if you renew your TN status via regular mail, your TN is extended up to 8 months until the new TN is being processed ( i believe the average time frame is around 2-3 months). If you apply and its taking long time to process and your driver license expires, how do you get your driving license extended? they look at your i-94 to grant you you your license, will they do a temporary extension based on what i tell them?

Violation followed by tn application

Jan 31st 2017
Travelled with my family to Detroit and had my medical test on monday.

Family decided to go back on Sunday so I boarded greyhound from Detroit after the medical test.

At the border cbp officers got into the bus and I told them I was here for my medical test. He keyed it in his device and swiped the passport.

I am expecting my tn packet any time this week to go to Poe. Any implications on the event on the tn visa application. Please advise.
