Working current job while on a K1?

Long story, short:

Last night, I was talking to my fiancée and she told me that her boss came to her and asked her how our engagement was going (great) and when she thought she would be leaving (his guess is as good as ours at this point.) But then, he offered her a promotion to stay at his firm in Colombia (proud of her for being so respected but irritated with him at the same time for trying to throw a monkey wrench into our plans.) While in theory, I'd be OK with going there to live (for a while), I would be unable to work in anything even remotely paying what I am accustomed to and, honestly, even a substantial increase in her pay without me working just couldn't cover both of our expenses.

Bottom line is I got to thinking that since he's so willing to try to get her to stay, and her job is 95% in front of a computer, could she telecommute from here? Technically, the job is in Colombia, not the U.S. The only things she couldn't do are the "go-fer" parts of her current job but surely if he wants her to stay so badly, he can accept her working offsite and find a new person to run the errands...

These are just my thoughts at the moment as it came to mind after we spoke and she certainly hasn't mentioned it to her boss yet but I'm trying to think of all options and cover all bases.

Any thoughts? Experiences with similar situations?

Hey there,

I cannot speak from my own experience, but a friend of mine - tele-commuted from Boston to Silicon Valley for 4 years with no problem. I don't know what exactly your fiance's job is but it definitely is possible. My friend was even so lucky to travel to Cali once a month - paid for by his company of course. The only thing you might look into is the tax situation...

Thanks..

I know from a technical standpoint it's 100% possible, at least if her boss accepts it. I'm more concerned with visa restrictions, tax implications, etc.

Just trying to think of ways to counter anything else he may throw out there. I don't want him going the other way if she doesn't accept the promotion and replacing her before we're ready and not knowing when this wonderful K1 process will be over makes it even more difficult.

From your timeline, I'd expect to see you guys getting an NOA2 any day now, and probably a late September or early October interview date. You can never predict very accurately, but you're running about 7 weeks behind us so far and that margin will probably tend to stay pretty similar on down the road...
