This blog is the result and reflection of my situation in the USA as a H4 non-immigrant. H4 visas are given to families of H-1Bs. H1B is a non-immigrant visa which allows U.S. employers to temporarily employ foreign workers in specialty occupations. In short, I came to the USA because my husband got a job here, but I am not allowed to work. Dealing with that restriction is a challenge harder than expected.
