Hi everyone,I'm starting from scratch here any advice would be very much appreciated! Our situation is that my husband has his own Ltd company (UK) and works as a consultant. His current contract require that he visits he US to set up a new operation for a European Company that has a US subsidiary. He has been doing this under his current visitor visa which allows for meetings. As he is not paid by a US company so far so good. We need to formalise this though so that he isn't restricted by the 6 month rule and also to make allowances should in the future his company be paid by the US subsidiary. We do not want to emigrate...he has specialist knowledge and would be in the 'lead senior' role in the US but he doesn't have any formal degree qualifications.......where should we start?

What 6 month rule?

He can attend meetings, he can not work.

Where he is paid is not relevant.

Your original post was full of incorrect assumptions.

I can not see a route, a good lawyer might.

From the original post, it seems he is already violating his visa terms. It sounds like your husband was in US on tourist on pretext of business meeting and doing some work for which he was getting paid in UK by the US company, which would be illegal.

I dont think there is any such option unless the company in US is willing to put him on their payroll and bring him here as their employee.
