Gotcha!

Sorry for the confusion. Mostly looking for anyone in or previously in Lagos, Nigeria in case he is sent back. Someone to recommend a place to work or apprentice. (He will basically be stepping off a plane at 18 with nothing)

If he ever runs into issues with paying for his school I will be happy to help with what little I can! I strongly support education specially supporting someone who wants it!

Long overdue update: he is settled in a new school and will not lose his F1 status. 🎉. Thanks everyone!

He will return if I fail. Trying to find a soft landing - any type of work. Since he’s been out of country since 14 and only 18 now. Unfortunately his mother passed while abroad. Sharp young man with a big heart.

If you are looking for AD school/Portfolio schools, Try VCU Brandcenter instead in upcoming fall semester. Applications are being accepted now. VCU Brandcenter gives F1 visa but it is for Masters Degree which means he needs to have undergraduate degree to apply. He can apply to the undergraduate program at VCU (they also have advertising program) if he hasn’t finished UG and transfer over credits. Also look into O1 visa. He can self sponsor for that visa or your agency can do it too- not sure what level of education degree you need for that.

How much of his education is left? Is his stay dependent on scholarship? Can we just raise funds so he can finish school? Gofundme? Too many unknowns. He can seek Asylum too as someone mentioned above.

I am almost 2 years into my H1B. They haven’t started my I140 but when I joined told me that I would be eligible in a year of which I am coming up on in this Oct.

The pros of the new one is TC more than 18k with sign-on of 15k (not sure clauses for this) and better wrk-life bal). My question is, how long into H1B is it advisable to have an I140 applied for. Would 3-4 years into my H1B be too late?
