  • Working while in F-1 status-when USCIS approval is and is not required
  • VISA Options after studying-DACA, H1B Petitions, “Cap Gap” relief and beyond
  • Avoid costly and often unfixable mistakes in maintaining Immigration Status
  • Develop strategies for maintaining status in the United States during and after study
  • Understand your options to remain in the United States after studying

  • How to find a support system?
  • How to retire in the United States?

Due to popular demand, we will begin the process of creating eBooks for each topic that will be distributed on a complimentary basis to anyone who contacts us and needs help.

JobsUntil we finalize the eBooks, we will be compiling some essential articles, resources and websites that will help you with each of these topics.  Let's begin with finding employment before relocating to the USA.  It doesn't have to be an overwhelming experience.
