Canadian with J-2 visa

I am a Canadian with J2 visa. I am an engineer and want to work in US to keep up with my career. I am going to apply for EAD. If I don't get, can I switch from J2 to TN. Can my kids still stay on J2?

You can switch back to TN from J-2. What you do has no effect on the children. They derive their status directly from your J-1 spouse.

Visa Stamp

I am planning to go home (outside US) for a month vacation this coming Dec. I have a visa stamp from my PREVIOUS employer that will expire on March 15, 2012. 1. Do I still need to go to the US embassy in my home country (where I am going for a vacation) since I have a new employer? 2. Could I use the visa stamp from my previous employer and present it to my point of entry? 3. Let's say I did not move to another employer, is there a time line when I can still use the visa stamp when I leave&go back to US(like for example, mine is nearing the expiration)?

J-2 holders and work authorization

Can I use my J-2 visa for internship and work after completion of FPGEE?

J-2 holders can get work authorization and work as per the licensing requirements of their profession.

Out of F-1 visa status

I just found out a couple of days back by my international advisor that I was out of status for two years now for taking classes in a community and transferring credits and it made me a part time student..He suggested I left the country after the semester and come back with the new I-20 and letter of recommendation he gives me. And I also I have been married to a US citizen for 2 months. Is it safe to go out of the country?

You can just apply for your green card. Do not travel outside USA until you get your green card (or travel only as advised by your lawyers).

J-2 to TN

I am Canadian citizen & currently working on TN visa. My spouse is on J1 visa. I want to switch to J2 and get EAD. After couple of years he will apply for waiver and will move to H1. I believe I will be switched to H2 automatically as his dependant and my EAD will be void. Will that be possible at that time that I can switch back to my TN status?

You can switch back to TN. To correct slightly, you do not automatically get switched to an H-4 (not H-2).

Stopping at USA

I am working in a Federal Gov't Agency, and in the near future leaving for Frankfurt, Germany, for a conference, and with a plan in mind to fly to USA via Germany after my conference is completed. My question, here, is that whether I can use my US visa, which is valid up to Apr 06/2012, whereas the passport has already expired by last May 23/2011, and due to be replaced by a new one.

You will need an unexpired passport to enter USA. People in your situation carry both the new and the old passports.

Visa for family to visit brother

I have a brother here in US who is diagnosed with cancer. I would like my mom and brother who live in India to come and visit him. What type of visa should they apply for in India and how long will it take? On which visa can they come as soon as possible.

Tourist visa seems to be appropriate. Times vary by consulate and are usually very short -- often visa is issued the same day an application is made. You can also get an appointment for emergent reasons.

Working Visa

My fiance is from Pakistan, currently working in Kenya.He has done IT and Web-design. He is willing to work in the United States, Is it possible to get the visa?

It is possible if he has the relevant degrees and has a job in his field in USA. The most commonly used visa for professional workers is an H-1B visa.
