Charlotte, NC asked in Immigration Law for North Carolina

Q: I am a nanny and flying out with my boss for work, my visa is expired, passport still valid, can I still fly domestic

I am a nanny and my boss asked me to fly out with them in June to help take care of the kids. But my visa and I94 has expired and my Passport is still valid. We are flying domestic and wanted to know if I can still fly using my passport or will I get flagged at TSA for using my passport. I am in the process of obtaining a T visa but it won't be ready by the time we fly out.

A: When did you file for a T-visa? If you filed before your other visa expired, you should be "in status" while your application is being considered. Which visa was it, by the way? It would be helpful to know how you were admitted to the US, since you claim that you are a victim of trafficking. It also sounds to me like you are handling this on your own. I would strongly advise you against filing for a T-visa without an attorney. Talk to an attorney ASAP.
