    T_and_A reacted to Oksana & Max in A job in the US without a college degree   
    Let's put it this way. You can find a job in the US without a degree, on another hand having a good paying degree job without a degree is challenging. I've been in this position before I got my degree. I also speak 4 languages fluently, but degree did it all. I found a first good paying job after I got my bachelors, after completing my master's I got a raise for having a Master's degree, currently I am half way done with my PhD and terminal degree in the US are big boost. I am not saying that you should go thru all the levels I did, but you should consider getting at least bachelor's if you are looking for a good paying job.
    Sorry if I offended you and I don't undermine you skills and knowledge, but degree, will give you a better chance.

    T_and_A got a reaction from VanessaTony in Removing the conditions for Temporary Resident Visa   
    That is not true. You only get a one year extension if you file removal of conditions within 90 days before your 2-yr greencard expires and it was received by USCIS and you get the NOA1.
    I would say, divorce him right away, then file removal of conditions with a waiver, not joint with him, within 90 days prior to GC expiration. If your divorce isn't final yet, you will get an RFE for the divorce decree and that will give you time to get one thing done, which is finalize the divorce and move away from him as much as possible. Doing it jointly, with your ex's help is fraud. You can do it on your own without an attorney, alot of helpful guides here in VJ and VJ users, just have to do your reading and research then will save you alot.
    If you are currently petitioning or co-signed to bring some of his family here(maybe more information on this? Is he a filipino naturalized US citizen? Who is he petitioning? What relation to him? parent, siblings? As far as I know LPR, cannot petition for family members except immediate relative, like husband/wife or children under certain age.) If their paperwork is processing, the best you could do is inform them that you will be divorcing and that you would like to withdraw the AOS petition, but not sure if you will be out of the binding contract with them once the family gets approved.

    T_and_A got a reaction from Ricky+Vanessa in Job Opening in our company   
    I thought i could share some of the job openings in our company right now... I work in IT department for clinical research company.
    I know it has been tough out there looking for jobs. Hoping there might be a good match here in VJ, I could somehow extend help to.
    Maybe people here who has jobs will follow the lead of posting some of the job oppurtunities within their respective companies, then we can all help our fellow VJ'ers.
    I can refer you to HR. You may PM me if you think you can do the job.
