***BE ADVISED: United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) DOES NOT recognize common-law marriages for purposes of Employment Authorization and visas. Therefore, common-law spouses who have elected to accompany the member to post on a B-2 visitor visa are not able to have an EAD processed for them through CAF support units. Common-law spouses can make alternative visa arrangements themselves and may be allowed to work, but they will need to investigate that on their own.

As a dependent or spouse of a CAF member posted to the U.S. on an OUTCAN posting, you are eligible to seek work. However, there are some crucial steps that you will need to take before you may begin working, and you will not be able to start the process until you have arrived in the U.S.
Get all the information you need to go through this process in the links below.
 
Please note: If you have a specific profession in the medical, education, or legal fields, you may have other requirements for the state where you will be located, in order to work in that field. You should look into those state requirements for licensing and certifications prior to moving.
