State/Country relating to question: Maryland
Hello. My name is XXXXX XXXXX X will be happy to answer your question.The motel owner cannot keep your friend's daughter from leaving the hoter or ask her for the return plane ticket or her passport and if the employer does that, your friend's daughter needs to report it to the local police/sheriff, as this is violation of her civil rights.The only thing that the hotel owner/employer can do is to report the fact that your friend's daughter left to the USCIS, but USCIS is not likely to do anything about it.
after she quit the job how long she can stay in country she have a return ticket on 18th sep can she leave country in august ?
Thank you for your follow up.She can leave the US any time prior to expiration of her J1 visa.
sorry i didnt get what u mean her sponsor told her if she not leave on 06/12/12 then she can put her in jail
Thank you for your follow up.The sponsor/employer cannot put your friend's daughter in jail, simply because she leaves.The only way your friend's daughter can be put in jail if your friend's daughter has committed some type of criminal act, but not for deciding to stay in the US or leaving the employer.
I have successfully handled all types of immigration cases.
thankyou very much so she can stay in country unteel sep 18 what about they terminete her j1 status then she can stay or not /
Thank you for your follow up.You friend's daughter can stay legally in the US, until the expiration of her J1 visa.
but what about she quit job then they will report in sewis so they going to terminete her visa then do u think visa steel valid unteel sep18 or she have to leave immidetlly
Even if she leaves her current job, her J1 visa will not get terminated and many visitors who come to the US on J1 visa change many employers and this does not effect the status of the J1 visa.Your friend's daughter's sponsor/employer is simply trying to scare her into working for his motel and he has no right to prevent her from leaving the job
thank u very much sir thankyou no additional charge
Thank you for using JustAnswer.com and good luck!
