If your husband jumps the border wall, he stands a better chance of getting a work authorization.

Yes, but only after the I-140. Then you can request a EAD for him. Talk with your company lawyer and they can give you an estimate of how long it should take (bear in mind that it will take 1-2 years for this stage)

They either need work authorization or to be on a work type visa if I remember correctly

Yes, with some conditions. Assuming Trump does not close the entire EAD program by the time approval is done and it is filed in the right visa category (otherwise forget it), etc.

What a ridiculous situation with work visas. Travesty.

Did I need to get an H1B visa stamping if I’m in the US? I was on OPT and got my H1B while on it so ive been in the US since 2014, never left. It’s time to renew my H1B and the questionnaire is asking for my current visa info such as the visa number. I don’t have a visa stamp for my H1B because I was in the US. I do have one for my F1 that is obviously expired. I only have the I-747A for my H1B. Did I not get an H1B stamping when I needed to for 2+ years…?

Alright moms. 4th kid in daycare and this one just won’t nap. We send a portable white noise machine and she has a lovey. But she apparently has serious FOMO. I’ve asked them to move her to the furthest corner. Then moved her to the younger baby room. But I’m out of ideas. 11 months old (10 mo adjusted). I had chalked it up to just starting at daycare but we are almost 2 months in. She’s a hot mess in the evenings. What magic do you have for me. All of my others fell in a routine by now!
