im not sure at the moment, this is for my girlfriend and shes not here. she is from germany and was on a freelance visa that she paid for, got hired as a full time employee for a big company who payed to sign over the visa and then fired her less than two weeks later. can she get it back?
Expert:  Guillermo J. Senmartin, Esq. replied 1 year ago.

Well, let's not speculate. Let's wait until she gets back and you can tell me what type of status she had when she got fired. Also, ask her about any employment contract she may have signed. Do not worry, your question does not time out, so take your time. I have to log out for a bit anyway and should be back in an hour or two.
