Facing a weird situation with H1-B and LLC

Recommended Posts

I am on H1-B and I opened a single member LLC to do a (small amount) side consulting job without the knowledge that opening an LLC is not allowed for a H1-B visa holder. I recently came to know about this rule and am really worried if this is going to hurt my green card application. What can I do to fix this benign mistake?
Thanks a lot in advance for any help.

As long as if an employer is sponsoring your H1B you are fine. you can close that LLC. You cannot be a owner and sponsor yourselves. If you still need that LLC have one of your friend who is GC or Citizen as a partner. you will be fine.

First thing is to stop this immediately. Other than that, your only hope is that they overlook it. If you didn't have much business they may.
