Can Immigrants On H1B Visas File For Bankruptcy?

Yes, anyone in the US can file for bankruptcy, regardless of their green card status, visa status, and even if they’re here illegally.

In addition, a bankruptcy filing shouldn’t have any impact on your H1B visa, or any efforts you may choose to make to become a legal permanent resident or citizen.

The exception to this would be if the bankruptcy court finds evidence of fraud in your filing.

While bankruptcy matters won’t impact your immigration or visa status, criminal activities like fraud will.

You should be very careful in how you proceed and make sure that all of your materials are well in order before filing.
