Starting Your Own Business on H-1 or AOS EAD

Printer-friendly versionPDF version

I am currently on H-1. I have a series of questions for you. This topic should be of interest to many people in the community. Could you please address these:
1. Can I start my own business while on H-1?
2. Can I be employed in my own business on my company's H-1?
3. Does it help to have partners from USA?
4. Can I get green card through a company I own?
5. What if my business is in Europe, but I work on it from USA? Is that legal?
6. Can I start business when I get my EAD on 485?
7. Can my wife start and own her business when she gets her EAD as derivative of my I-485?
