QUESTION: Can my employer help me to be legal in the country? I got hired because of a relationship that had with my previous ex-boss. Thanks for your time.
ATTORNEY ROMAN’S ADVICE: Your employer can help you be legal in this country if you have entered the country with a visa and if you have remained within the US lawfully.
There was special law that expired in April 2001 called 245(i) which allowed people to adjust status even if they entered without visa, but that is not currently permitted under the law unless an immigration law is passed sometime soon.
I hope this answered your question.
