Getting H1-B or equivalent under CR-1

Can a beneficiary of a CR-1 application living and working in Canada get a US company to sponsor him/her on a H1-B basis for a temporary job?


I think that wouldn't be a problem since h1-b is dual intent. For less than that, a beneficiary will be able to get a non dual intent B1/B2 to visit his/her spouse in US, but I'd like to confirm about the h1-b.


If ever that is possible, then after entering US with a H1-B, the beneficiary could ask for a status adjustment since he/she has a US Citizen for spouse. The status adjustment request procedure would be as much similar as if a non-immigrant already living in US under a H1-B gets married with a US Citizen. Only that in this case, marriage happened before canadian spouse was living in US. In that case, the CR-1 process could get dropped since adjustment of status was filed.


Does that make sense? Is that possible? What do you think?

Yes it is possible
