Hello everybody, Can anyone answer my questions: -Can I get a work permit for a part
time job? -Which one do I need? -Can my boyfriend and I get married in the USA? (He
already has a visa and a work permit) and what do we need to do to get married there?
-Can I get a visa when I'm not married?

Thank you all! Jacobien

It depends on the type of work permit. Check them out:

Most will permit part-time work.

It depends on your educational qualifications, and the type of job offer that you can
get from a U.S. employer.

Assuming you are both free to marry, yes, you can marry in the U.S. You can enter in
WT (visa waiver-tourist) status, or B-2 status, with the intention of marrying a
temporary status holder (for example, H-1B), and then get married, and then apply to
change your status to the dependent status (for example, H-4). H-4 status does not
permit employment at all.

Each state has different regulations about marriage, so you have to check with the
state, or the local agency that handles such matters.

Single people get visas all the time. I am not sure why you are asking this.

If you mean, "Can I get temporary status as a dependent of someone who holds
temporary status in the U.S., for example H-1B, without being married," the
answer is no.

Oops, this is wrong. If you enter in WT, you cannot change status within the U.S. You
would have to marry, leave the U.S. again, get a visa stamp, and re-enter the U.S. in
the new status.
