Immigration Issues/Change of Visa
I am International student with F1 visa. My Social Security Card does not have the notation, "Not valid for employment". I have been working for 1 year. Now I have found an Sponser and I want to change my visa.
I want to know what is my legal situation and what are my alternatives?
Technically you violated your status by working on your F-1 without a work permit. If Immigration finds out about it you will not be able to change status to another non-immigrant work visa. In any event, there are no more H-1s to be applied for until 4/1/07, for work to begin 10/1/07. What type of visa did you want to change to and what is your educational background?
