Legal Question

Asked on: 8/08/12, 9:58 am

Hello,

I recently completed by studies from one of the colleges of NY state.I'm on OPT rightnow.I'm currently living in New Jersey

One of my friend who is a US Citizen is forming a company and he wants me to be a part of it as a co-founding member.My questions are that can i use this to demonstrate that im self-employed? If so what are the restrictions? Can i get and 17 month extension(Im a STEM major) if i stay self-employed? How can i get or file H1B in this case? And how long will i have to wait before i can file H1B?

If this doesnt work-out my friend is willing to hire me as a manager so that its easy to demonstrate the employee-employer relationship.In this case what will be the restrictions on myself and on my friend and his company? Can i get and 17 month extension(Im a STEM major) if i stay self-employed? How can i get or file H1B in this case? And how long will i have to wait before i can file H1B?

Thank you for your time and answers in advance
