Legal Answers
Q. Marriott hotel sublet the event hosting time slot paid my me to another party. Want to sue Marriott.
A: Marriott may have a choice of law in one of the agreements you signed with it. You need to find it out and have an attorney to review the documents. Based on my cases with Marriott, Maryland is always the jurisdiction it desires. As Attorney Tolley mentioend, you may be able to write a demand letter, but you need to talk with an attorney first before taking any actions. My answer does not build the client-attorney relationship.
Q. You I am on STEM opt cap gap, can I transfer H1B visa before October 1??? Provided I get H1B approval notice in may???
A: This is not an accurate question. You need to provide more facts to get an answer. In order to get an answer for you, I may ask 1) has the H1B been filed? If so, when was it filed? If not, when will it be filed? 2) Is premium processing required for the H1B petition? 3) What date was put as starting date on the H1B petition? 4) Are you currently working? 5) Do you have any immigration petitions pending? etc. I feel sorry, but I cannot give you an answer based on assumptions. I would recommend you have a consultation with an immigration attorney.
Q. Can a veterinarian on a j2 visa volunteer in an animal shelter without work permit
A: It depends, but most likely the answer is yes. Employment authorization may not be required when the work performed can be considered volunteering as defined by the USCIS. J-2 dependents cannot be unpaid volunteers in positions where others receive compensation to perform the same services. It sounds like there is no compensation or expectation of compensation. Further, services are performed for a non-profit charity and the work is "charitable" in nature. If my understanding is correct, then you may likely volunteer legally at the animal shelter. However, as a professional person, I should not simply give you my conclusion without full review of your case, because other factors should also be considered. Well, I do highly recommend you to confirm this with the school's DSO through the J1 holder.
