Ask an Immigration Lawyer. Get an Answer ASAP.
Hello, welcome to JustAnswer, my name isXXXXX you for this opportunity to answer your questions.
I am not clear on what you are asking.
I don't see how that would be different than the relationships your current employer has with other clubs. The only difference here is that the contract with th company would be with a university rather than with a club. But it appears that the basic arrangement would not be any different.
I am happy to answer follow-up questions for you at no additional cost.
If you want to request me in the future start your question "FOR JUDITH" and I will answer quickly.
1. I could a apply for a h2b extension on my current visa through a lawyer while also filing for my EB-3 visa with the University. The H2B extension would buy me time for my EB-3 to be processed.
2. Apply as soon as I'm at the university through a lawyer for an EB-3 visa but file a request for work authorization while the EB-3 is being processed.
It will take 6 years for a visa number to become available under the EB3 employment category.
You cannot get a work authorization until it is current.
You may be denied an H2B visa extension because you must have an intent to return to your country when the visa status expires. If you ahve an EB3 labor cert filed, that is a presumption of an intent to immigrate and not return to your country.
If you don't qualify for a O or P visa, you are not going to get to where you want to be.
I cannot pull a rabbit out of the hat here. No magic tricks to help you out. Lawyers are not magicians and we don't always have a solution.
Quite possibly you might qualify for an O.
If you are willing to pay for a good lawyer you have a good shot at it. I have a reference for a lawyer who is top notch.
