AOS - Business Owner in Home Country

Hi all!

 

My fiance and me, we are currently in the process of our K1 application (waiting for NOA2).

With the whole Covid-19 around, we had to adjust some of our plans and came to a question.

 

Is it possible for me (living in Germany) to own a business in Germany, when I travel to the US with my K1 Visa, get married and then apply for the Adjustment of status?

It's just a small shop (hair dresser) and I plan to eventually sell it at one point. 

Since I know I am not allowed to work in the US, while I await for my AOS, I am really unsure about this. I myself would of course stop working there when I move and have someone else take care of the managing tasks.

 

Another question I have is, if it is at all possible for me to have property in Germany, while awaiting the AOS. I would for instance rent out my house and therefore have income of that.

 

I googled for days but cannot find a real answer.

Maybe anyone here has some experience?

 

Thank you!

Sabina

Not an issue.......Nothing prohibits income.....only work is prohibited.....and nothing prohibits owning property anywhere....

You are allowed to have investments, this will not be a problem 

YMMV
