Hi Guys,

So I have a question. We believe that our I130 will come in very soon. She will be able to stay in the U.S. and we will then file for her temp. work visa. My question is this, she is a nurse who is an RPN in Canada (Registered Practical Nurse) BUT she is only 10 CREDITS away from her RN (Registered Nurse) in the states, see the states don't have RPN's. Okay, so, when will she be able to go to college? Community college in our area is what she is looking at. She doesn't even know if she can get into the program until a year from Sept. but if she can get in THIS Sept. she would rather do it sooner then later. Does anybody know about working and which visa you need? Are we going to have to wait until we do our final visa (the perminent resident one?)!

Thanks guys!

Love in our Shared Experieces,

Casey

Except in some states with additional requirements, most schools aren't terribly concerned with immigration status, but they don't typically allow students to enroll under the Visa Waiver Pilot Program, and may balk at B visitor visas. A K-category visa is perfectly fine to become a student.

For work permission, you'll need the I-765 to be approved.

You will definitely need a SS# and if she doesn't have her green card yet she would be considered an out-of-state student which means you'll have to pay out-of-state tuition fees.

Hi,

when you say "you" will need a SS#, do you mean, ME (the U.S. Citizen) or my wife?

Also, one other question? So, our "I130" is being processed, but then our lawyer is giving us contradicting information - once it "comes in" he said that we will have to file papers to get her over still, that it takes "about two more weeks" but I asked him if this was for the sponsership and the tax returns, ect, and he said earlier "no, thats for a differen't visa" so I'm confused, when it comes through the CVC can she come over? Or do we need to send more papers? Thanks!

The SSN is needed for the imigrant who wants to study in US. Have she considered to revalidate her career in USA? Maybe she can avoid 1 year more of study and she'll work soon as she get her work authorization.
