1. I Was Deported Last Year – Can I Still Come in Under H-1B Visa If I Have a Sponsor?
2 years ago while under H-1B, I had an argument with my employer over his shady practices, left the company, and reported him to the labor department. He got mad and reported me to Immigration and I never knew that I was supposed to attend the hearing, so I was ordered deported. I didn’t know that I was deported until I tried to apply for a travel visa to come back. My skill is in great demand, and I can find another company quickly that can file for H-1B for me again. I only used up 2 years of time under the H-1B. Do I have to apply under the H-1B lottery again? If not, what is the procedure?
2. Will My Son’s Cerebral Palsy Prevent Our Family From Immigrating If I Get Clearance Through a National Interest Waiver?
I work at a university and the research that I am doing is very cutting edge. I have multiple publications to my name, and people know me in the field. I want to apply for U. S. immigration under a national interest waiver (NIW), but am worried that we will have a problem in immigrating because of our son’s cerebral palsy. How much of a worry is it?
3. Under H-1B, Can I Purchase A Motel, Hire A Manager, and Have Him or Her Run the Establishment?
I am in the U. S. pursuant to H-1B visa status and working full time for my employer. I am thinking to invest in a motel in New Jersey where I will own the motel 100% for my investment of about $250,000, and I will hire a manager who will run it for me. Can I do this under my H-1B status?
