Green Card/Employment Authorization when TN Visa Expires

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Filed: TN Visa Country: Canada


I am a Canadian citizen who married a USC two weeks ago. I have been in the USA on a TN-Visa for several years. My TN-Visa expires on December 30, 2012. I am in the process of gathering together my green card application (which should be submitted within the next two weeks) and will apply for work authorization at the same time. I have read in several spots online that I would be able to continue my present employment even if I have not received employment authorization when my TN-Visa expires. Is this true? I've read that any time out-of-status is forgiven upon marriage to a USC.

If I cannot continue my present employment until the work authorization has been granted, is there any way to expedite the process of getting my work authorization processed? I am an attorney, so it presents a very substantial hardship to me both professionally and financially if I cannot maintain continuity of work with my clients!

I appreciate any help you can offer. Thanks!
