  • What are my options?

    I am a recent US law school graduate, and I have already gotten my F1 OPT approved by USCIS. My mother is a PR through marriage. Will it be a bad idea for her file an I-130 for me to become a PR also when Im under OPT? And if she does, can I still look for employment under H1B sponsorship at the same time?

    I guess I want to know how many ways to get PR a person can file. Please advise!

      I don't see a problem with your mother petitioning for you now... and H1B is a dual intent (immigration) visa/status, so I don't see a problem there either. This is just an opinion, as I don't know that much about H visas.

            JAG, I am sure you know this but you need to be a US citizen in order to take the Bar. Please take this in consideration while planning your future here. Good luck to you!

              Actually, Polish Girl, the Supreme Court decided that while states may place restrictions on who can practice law in their state, the restrictions cannot be unreasonable and must be rationally related to teh practice of law. And the number one unrationally restriction for practicing in a state is requiring US Citizenship (the second is requiring state residency). Therefore I can sit for the bar and even practice law (once i pass the bar and get sworn in).

              But thank you for you input.
