Iím helping a good friend file her N-400 and need some help. In the form there is a question about her work history. She has been working for the same company for 15 years. She came to the US as a student and started working with the company while she had a work permit. Later the work permit expired and she remained working without a permit. She married a US citizen and received her permanent green card 5 years ago. The marriage didnít work and she is divorced now. Is she going to be questioned why the date that she started working is before she became a legal resident? If so is this going to be a problem? Would you recommend seeking a lawyer due to this issue?
Iíve read that if work illegally and marry a US citizen, you are forgiven.
Please advice =)
