We have an employee from Canada working in the US for our church on an R1 visa. His wife has financial skills we would like to use potentially. Not sure if it is relevant but we have had him here for 10 months.Do you have any suggestions?Are any of these options allowed:1. Our church in Canada pays her with Canadian dollars for work done here. Our leadership is on their board but they are a separate legal entity.2. We get some type of spouse permit/visa that allows her to work?3. She volunteers for us in this capacity until we find someone to take the job or she becomes eligible to work some other way (ie her husband on R1 gets his green card or maybe I485).Any insight and direction will be helpful. Thanks,

I'm a Canadian currently working in US under TN visa. I got my approval for H1B visa. The effective date on my visa was 10/01/2016. I haven't crossed the border to get my H1B stamp. Do I still have time to do this or have I missed the deadline?The second question is that can I easily transfer H1B from one employer to another?Thank you.

I'm only going down to New York City to do a 3-day training.

I'm only going down to New York City to do a 3-day training. If applying for a TD-1 (a) can I apply for and get it a week before traveling to avoid the stress on the day of departure, and (b) should the Visa Application letter from the employer/contractor petition US Customs & BP to grant me a TN-1 for 5 days? one year? three years? The letter could state, truthfully, that we are likely to have 2-3 such training events in that agency for the next 3 years.JA: What is your official status? Do you have any pending applications or petitions with USCIS?Customer: No, I will be applying for a TN Non-immigrant visa at a Port of Entry. I am a Canadian citizen with a NAFTA profession with a PhD degree and license to practice & requirement from employer for the position as Psychologist.JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: No, but I've been through the whole "TN Visa Expert" thing. I just need answers to my first questions...JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Do $ signs start ticking as soon as I am connected?
