Working in home country while on K-1 visa? and I-134 question

Hello,

I was browsing some of the other forums and noticed that it seems that my foreign fiancee will be eligible to work in the US after we're married and file for adjustment of status, and that's approved. He works as a freelance illustrator, and I was just wondering if it's possible for him to continue working with his foreign clientele while he's here on his K-1? Or does he need to stop working altogether?

I also noticed that on the I-134 (I think that's the form, where I verify that I can support him) there's a question that says "Have you filed for a visa application for anyone?" Do I check yes and include my fiancee on that box? Or do they assume that since I'm filing an I-134 that I've obviously already filed a visa application for someone?

Thanks very much! We just got our NOA1 today and are so excited the ball is rolling. :)

Hello and welcome to Visa Journey!!!

I'm going to let someone else answer part 1 of your posting. (However, my opinion is that he could continue to work with his foreign clientele while here. He cannot and should NOT be working and earning any money in the USA.)

Your answer to this question on the I-134 is "NO"...this is talking about another person in the past, not your fiance'. They do not assume anything...hence the questions are asked on the form for the information they need.

Best Wishes, :thumbs:

He should not be earning money from the time he enters the USA on his K-1 visa until he has received his EAD. The EAD (Employment Authorization Document) will allow him to work legally from the USA. This is applied for after you have married when you apply for AOS. You should apply for AOS, EAD and AP all at once to save time and money.

Thanks so much, both of you! This whole thing can be so confusing sometimes, and it's nice to have others help you along.
