Hi All,

I have a query for Expats liivng and working in the US.
I am a freelance Engineer and my client Ford want´s to send me to the US Detroit to work. I currently work for them in Germany. I am struggling to understand which Visa I should apply for and how to kick off the process. An added complication is wife and children, the wife also wants to work and studied in Arizona for her degree. Any tips or help would be graefully appreciated.

who would need to sponsor me? can I sponsor myself?

Many Thanks

Ford has to apply for the visa, and they might have to adjust your status with them (i.e. make you a regular employee) in order to do that.

Start with doing your own research - uscis.gov is the official site for US immigration.

Self sponsorship is possible but only under very specific circumstances. If Ford takes you on as employee and brings you in with H1B your wife can go to school but NOT work as H4B. She can apply for a student visa and be able to work a limited number of hours on campus as of the second year of enrollment.
