I am in H1B status and have an approved I-140. I own home and installed a shed in my backyard. My neighbor is threatening to sue, claiming that the shed violates local zoning laws, is encroaching on her property, etc. I believe my neighbor is completely mistaken, but, if she sues and somehow wins, is there any chance this could harm my current status or future green card case?


A civil lawsuit generally would have no impact on a person’s H1B status or green card application.  (24.May.2023)
