    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Get a job offer and apply to the government for permission to work.
    D. The employer must take the necessary precautions and required steps to apply for the foreign national to work in this country.
    E. Meet with an immigration attorney to discuss all available options.
    Explanation
    A foreign national who is not a U.S. permanent resident or a citizen must first be authorized for employment by the immigration authorities in order to work legally in this country. Generally this requires applying in advance for some type of employer-sponsored work visa or an employment authorization document. This process can be rather technical and complicated, depending on the individual's specific circumstances, his/her qualifications and the type of the job being sought.

  • 2. 

    What if a foreign national's status is expiring or has expired?

    • A.

    • D.

      Talk to an immigration attorney to figure out available options.

    Correct Answer
    D. Talk to an immigration attorney to figure out available options.
    Explanation
    Leaving the country immediately or staying indefinitely and hoping no one would find out generally may not be the best options, especially for someone whose status has already expired. Turning themselves into immigration authorities before consulting with an immigration attorney is also not a recommended approach. The best strategy is to be proactive and talk to an attorney as soon as possible to find out the available options.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    Information about immigration law on the internet is reliable and trustworthy. 

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    While it's wise to do your own research and gain as much understanding about immigration law as possible, it's not wise to believe everything that you read on the internet. Immigration laws and policies change frequently, and it's possible that the information you have just read is not the most up-to-date. For that reason, it's best to consult with an immigration attorney to help dispel any myths and provide the most accurate information.

    Explanation
    If you are facing severe financial issues and truly cannot afford to hire an attorney, there are other resources available to low-income individuals such as Legal Aid or local community groups that could assist at a reduced fee or for free. Don't give up hope and make sure to research your available options.

  • 6.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Unlicensed individuals who assist with immigration filings often end up creating additional complications for the foreign nationals because mistakes are easily made. Just because someone is nice and offers to help you doesn't mean that it's in your best interest to accept the help. Use your best judgment and contact an immigration attorney when necessary.
