Question about pending AOS case

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My husband is not currently authorized to work.

I know this is forgiven when adjusting status through a US citizen.

 

My question is this:

My husbands place of previous employment wants him to come back to work. His family is involved in the business.  Well they are asking him to fill out an application and on that application it asks if he is legally allowed to work in the US.

Obviously the Answer is no. But I'm wondering if he answers yes and they don't bother to check it, will this reflect negatively on our pending adjustment of status case? I know working unauthorized is frowned upon but, is lying about being legally allowed to work in the US even worse?

Could that be taken the same as claiming you are a US citizen (he's never done that before by the way)

several issues 

1st     you know he is not allowed to work

2nd    he knows he is not able to work legally

3rd     the company (family business) knows this and they can be fined 

4th     do you intend to pay taxes on unreported illegal income?

5th     why are you willing to mess all this up at this point/  you signed to be responsible for him so you proved adequate income for the visa

 

others will chime in with what this can lead to with immigration

i just can't understand why you risk illegally doing anything when you go thru so much to get a visa

if you wanted him to be able to work fast,   you should have gone the CR1 route

yeah, was just about to write the same. they've come this far, why not wait a few more months for the EAD and work legally!? they could even expedite EAD processing under financial hardships.

begs the question 

why would any employer risk this ?

they need to have a copy of ID,  SS card,  green card for their files 

and to pay into SS,   medicare and federal and state taxes

there are not only fines for hiring illegals but for not paying into IRS for benefits 

and believe me,   any one hurt on the job is going to report the employer when they find out they can

Can we even qualify?

They only recently accepted our case on June 12th, isn't that too soon?

If you have the NOA1 you can ask to expedite the EAD.   I'm guessing you would use Financial Hardship.
