Doing AOS without EAD and Working as Babysitter

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Is it appropriate for my spouse to work as a babysitter without an employment authorization document and receive money on the side?

(EAD is so expensive! :innocent: )

I have read one VJ post about someone using a social security number other than their own. Definitely a no no and I am aware of the consequences. But babysitting just seems so innocent, and you don't get taxed for it.

Thanks

All income is "supposed" to be reported and taxed, and yes babysitting is considered a job! So to answer your question no.

The EAD is "free" if filed in conjunction with the AOS. If you haven't filed for it, you will need a copy of your NOA when you send in the EAD application.

As stated in the above post, work is work, income is income, regardless of it's source, all income is to be reported to the IRS (this is where they take the tax from it), even it's illegally gained.

I wouldn't start your journey here working on the "side" imo.


My Advice is usually based on "Worst Case Scenario" and what is written in the rules/laws/instructions. That is the way I roll... -Protect your Status - file before your I-94 expires.

WARNING: Phrases in this post may sound meaner than they were intended to be. Read the Adjudicator's Field Manual from USCIS
