Legally working in the US prior to getting Green Card
8:18 am April 19, 2024

I have no intention of breaking the law so I would like the legal answer if it is known.

All going well, I should have my visa approved in the next week or so and I am planning to move to the US in mid September. (yes it is within the 6 months of the medical)

I talked to my boss about me moving to the US and he has asked if I would be interested in continuing working for him but remotely in the US. I would like to help them out if possible, but obviously I cannot get a green card until I have got married and completed AOS which I plan on doing ASAP.

Does my lack of green card stop me from legally working US based jobs only or does it stop me from working ANY jobs when I live in the USA?

If I cannot work ANY jobs then so be it, but I would like to help my boss out if I can, and if i can't, I'll probably help him out where I can for free to keep myself busy rather than be <DELETED> sitting around and playing video games all day (as fun as that does sound, it's not very productive)

Auckland Medical Citymed Review

Just had my K2 medical yesterday at Auckland Citymed at 1:30pm.
Great experience. For a nervous time, they treat you with respect and are very professional and quick.

Timeline (give or take a few minutes), appointment was at 1:30pm, I got to Citymed about 1:10pm

I caught a flight from Wellington to Auckland, landing around 12pm.
Went straight out the front of the airport to catch the Skydrive bus which got me to Skycity about 12:50pm.
Walked from Skycity to Citymed in about 10-15 minutes at a casual stroll pace. It's all downhill.
Reception checked my paperwork and the nurse called me in to put me through the paces of taking vitals and measurements.
Doctor called me in and did a bunch of questions about my medical history, things like hospital stays, medications, family history, pysch issues, drug/alcohol dependencies, STD history etc Then a bit of a check for breathing, heart rate and reflexes. Nothing major or invasive.
Back to the nurse for a couple vaccination updates and blood draws then off to radiology out the back of Citymed for a chest x-ray and I was done.
15-20 minute walk back to Skycity for the bus back which got me to the airport around 4pm.
(Don't forget to hand over your paperwork to the front counter at Citymed when you leave)

So I think that my timeline was pretty much as good as it could get at 4 hours from airport doors to airport doors.
But I would definitely allow more time than 4 hours for bad traffic or flight delays or longer wait times at Citymed.

All in all I 100% rate the Citymed experience. I thought it was going to be a bit clinical and stiff, but they were super nice.

Mother's middle name misspelled in I-485 form
1:27 am January 30, 2024

I submitted my I-485 (through marriage) application in November and I just realised I spelled my Mum's middle name wrong in the form (there are 2 L's in the name and I only put 1) and doesn't match what it says on my birth certificate. Is this gonna matter or get DENIED? I already got (and responded to) an RFE but that was about the I-864. Not sure if I should redo the I-485 and upload it online (there's already like a million things on there for my RFE).

Adjustment of Status

Hi - it's amazing how quickly time passes and how easily we forget. This place was my lifeline for over a year, and now I feel like I have to relearn everything.

We got a temporary green card for my husband due to the fact we were shy of two years married when we moved to the U.S. & Come June 2024, my husband's green card will expire, so I am starting to look into the Adjustment of Status process. I feel like I'm on ground 0 again. Can someone point me in the direction of a thread outlining the process (yes, I've tried to search but not seeing anything I'm looking for). If someone could point me in the right direction of where to start, what's needed, timelines, etc.
