Hello! My name is***** and I am a licensed attorney with more than 13 years of experience. I am here to assist you with your questions. Please understand that if I ask you for additional information, you are NOT charged again and our communications are NOT timed. So please see this as a relaxed conversation between friends. I am here to help.

Is the new employment related to your field of study? Did you inform your DSO and update your OPT address?

I do not know why you are not responding, but you are not charged per question, per response, nor per answer. So after I give you my answer, you can continue to ask me questions without additional charge until you are satisfied. I apologize if it is a site issue that you posted and the post did not go through.

I want to help, but I really need you to respond. Do you know if your old employer spent any money on you to train you or to file anything for you like perhaps they filed an H-1B petition for you?

Immigration Lawyer: Guillermo J. Senmartin, Esq., Immigration Lawyer replied 2 years ago

The new employment would have to be in your field of study. You will need to inform your DSO about the chance. As to the money that your old employer says that you owe them, send them a certified letter asking them to provide the contract that you signed that makes you liable to them for $10,000. If they cannot provide said contract, ask them why they believe that you owe them $10,000. I don't think they will have a good explanation and if there is no good explanation or contract, tell them that you will see them in court. I doubt they will spend thousands of dollars in attorney fees to try to sue you for something on such a weak case.

My goal is to provide you with excellent service – if you feel you have received anything less, please reply back as I am happy to address follow-up questions and there is no additional charge. Also, should you need to chat on the phone, private email or need help reviewing documentation, I am happy to do so for a small additional cost. Let me know if you are interested in these – I am happy to give you more details! When we are done, if you would be so kind as to leave a positive rating for my service, I would sincerely ***** ***** You can even ask additional questions without additional charge even after leaving a positive rating. Thank you for your understanding.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
