Petitioner working remotely

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

I don't know if this really is the right place to ask this, but what the hey. My Canadian husband may soon be accepting a job here in Canada which will allow him to work remotely. What we were both wondering is whether he can keep this job after my husband obtains his green card and we move to the States. Obviously, he will still be working for a Canadian company and being paid in Canadian dollars, but we will be residing in the U.S. He will be looking for work in the States after we move there, but he was hoping to keep the remote job until then. Does anyone actually know if this allowed?

Thanks in advance,

- Sam

Sam,

What's the problem if he is physically in the U.S after getting GC? So, he maintains his GC status. Regarding income, it is IRS matter. He will have to file taxes in the U.S and declare Candian income as his foreign income. He may need to file taxes over there as well (check it out). IMO, ask his employer to send the paystubs to his U.S address, after he moves to the U.S.

Sam,

What's your stage in the GC process?

If you are not yet in NVC stage and your (sponsor) income alone does not meet poverty guidelines, please read below:

You can declare your husband's (beneficiary) income in your AOS, because you have proof that his income will still continue even after the migration to the U.S.

Are you guys still going DCF route? IF SO -

there isn't any issue on this, at all.

It's a benefit of a 'green card holder', and thankfully, his visa, at POE, will get an I-551 stamp, that validates his visa to be used as a temporary green card, for one year.

To avoid any other hassles, make sure he -

--is paid electronically or via direct deposit to his canadian bank account and

--he applies for SSN 2 weeks after coming into the USA, at SSA office.

You guys can figure out the tax , should be straightforward...

Just remember - he's a 'beneficiary', not a 'petitioner'. You, the USC Spouse, are the petitioner.


Sometimes my language usage seems confusing - please feel free to 'read it twice', just in case !

Darnell,

Initially I also confused with the subject line "Petitioner remotely working". Isn't it "Beneficiary remotely working"?

Yeah,

Sorry, I was obviously tired when I posted the message. I mean beneficiary, not petitioner.

Is there any moderator that can change the title?
