Would it be ok if I submit them with numbers redacted?

    I think OPs Intent is if the lawyer shares it with the new company - say you had added 10% 15% to the salary to the HR to negotiate better

      Isnt it unlawful in CA if the employer/ HR gets their hands on the payslips

    • Amazon yup!
      It's certainly unlawful for you to lie about your pay. I guess you did? It's fraud. I know, perhaps no big deal to commit fraud where you are from. I was raised differently though.

      There is no attorney-client privilege between you and your employer's lawyer.

      The lawyer works for your employer, because that's who pays them.

      But I wouldn't worry too much about an employer knowing about your past paychecks.

      @yup. Don't make assumptions about people's raising environment based on a statement..OPs question is genuine

      @marijuana: I had asked my company's lawyer. They cannot share your paychecks with the employer without your permission. Atleast that's what fragomen told me

    If the immigration lawyer will use it for getting you visa, you might be charged for purgery. This is a crime with jail time.

      Backing? That's sure case to get rejected. It's easier to simply not submit anything.

      I agree it could get rejected if the lawyer submits those, but that is a far cry from perjury or jail time.

      Yeah, it's just deportation
      Jul 8
    • Amazon yup!
      Maybe. USCIS might just RFE for the unredacted versions. You might also be able to submit the originals directly to USCIS so the lawyers never see them.

      Not deportation either. Rejection does not necessarily lead to having to leave (60 day grace period, etc etc), and as Amazon says, RFE is also a likely possibility.

    Don’t worry about hurting your lawyers’ feelings. They make a good salary too.

    AFAIK it's fairly standard practice to submit payslips (as an indicator of being employed during previous periods) to the government, in support of an application to change/extend status or change employer.

    Blacking out the numbers will just be weird, your employer's lawyer will likely ask for unredacted versions to submit to the government.

    Never lie to immigration, they can rescind your status anytime if they figured the fraud

    Why would you do that? Are you trying to hide your salary?
