  • My USC child is autistic (disability). I am non-USC F1. Can I be here to help him?

    HI! Both of my children were born here. I am here for my school with F-1 VISA. Just last week, my son who is USC has been diagnosed with autism which is more like a brian developmental problem. He needs special education services. My question is how can I stay here to get him be in the programs that he deserves. I am worried since I don't know if I camn get a job and be here. If I can't be here, he can't be here too. He needs special education here.+--+

        You should consult an immigration attorney and see what options you've got. In most instances, you'll still need to have some kind of a basis to adjust your status after you're finished with your studies. Even though the condition may be severe enough to grant you a stay or even a removal of chancelation in the case that you'd be without a status, I would not suggest to you to go that route.

        Depending from which country you are most other industrial countries have equal to and occasionally better health care systems. Also, how old is the child and how severe is the Autism itself, there are different grades and accordingly may or may not fullfill the "hardship" clause. The only thing I'd think of with my limited knowledge of F-1 visa conditions would be to adjust to H-1 as a work visa. Good luck!

          What is the status of your husband?
          Is your major in demand in US.?
          Your child can claim disability/medical help from Social Security consult an SSA attorney.

            My husband left this country after finishing his PhD in math. I am doing my PhD in consumer marketing. We have not yet done any legal issue but we are considering getting a divorce.

            I just need to stay in the US to help my child. Innitially, I never want to stay here. Anyway, I will try to be here for his sake. The US education system has more services to disable children that we do in my country, Thailand.

            Regarding the lawyer, are there all specialised in different things? I mean I need to consult immigration lawyer, and special ed lawer, and SSA lawyer, and even a divorce lawyer? They all never be cheap?

              You can also tlk to your Student Affairs guys or International Student Advisor, if they can offer you a job or change your visa. try this first, As far as Attorneies are concern it is good to have a free consulatation first which many offers, If you are in CA, they do have some good attorney in that area. check this wensite: www.aila.org
              all the best
