    TN VISA

    No. You cannot "mix" statuses. The instant you are granted TN, you must stop working your H1-B job. You would need to get a TN for the original job if you wanted to continue (which employer would probably refuse to attempt).

    Tn expired

    So, like I said, even though your I-94 is valid, and even though you don't need a visa... you do need to be working, which apparently right now you are NOT.

    AOS Passport expired (TN to GC)

    We have no idea! I doubt it for the TN. For the AP, possibly, but you tried this already. All the rest is poor planning in my opinion. Spouse could have switched to another status to study, and probably gotten OPT for clinical.

    TN VISA

    1. You are of course eligible to apply for the job. The question is whether it is a civil engineering job, or a management consulting job. You would likely qualify for either. 2. This should not affect your current TN. Remember to secure the second TN and keep the first until you are ready to...

    Is it too early for TN renewal?

    It is up to the border POE, but 2 weeks should be enough for most officers. Like I said, you can try, and they may then tell you when to come back.

    Is it too early for TN renewal?

    The border is unlikely to accept it, but there is no harm in trying -- UNLESS you have had problems last time with border accepting your quals. -- in which case you might just want to wait to avoid that battle until later.

    TD Visa- Education

    Amberleaf, of course he should expect a better answer here, and he got 4 of them. Not all immigration matters are up to opinion.

    Tn expired

    Your I-94 is good until Feb 2021, and you can continue to work until then. Your TN visa (which is issued at a consulate, is only use for entry into US, and since you have an approved I-129 TN until 2021, your old consular visa is automatically valid for re-entry. You have nothing to do, and...

    TD Visa- Education

    Obviously, the officers questioned had no idea, and 1 and 4 pulled the answers out of their ass. Study on TN, TD, H1, H4, etc is considered "incidental" to one's primary status, so is permitted, at any level of education.

    Tn expired

    It is not a problem, but please explain how your I-94 is 'valid' but your TN 'expired'. Typically if your I-94 and TN expire at same time, or the I-94 becomes invalid before TN expiry. Your situation seems unusual.

    With a pending H1B, would it be possible to start work with TN in August and change to H1B status in October?

    So your true start date is October 1, unless your firm decides to have you work outside US, which they can do now. Yes, you can get TN, and then switch to H1-B when approved. You would need to exit US and re-enter to switch, but since you would be on TN, there would be no rush to do this.

    Math, not computer science is ok to get TN visa

    As Hualoutang says, focus on the petition QUALITY not the venue. A poor petition will be rejected anywhere. A good, complete one will be accepted anywhere.

    AOS Passport expired (TN to GC)

    All steps after 6 or 7 require that you are on EAD/AP and no longer on TN. As I said, AC21 does not apply when you are on TN. The entire process outlines still applies, the steps you mention just aren't available to you -because your team didn't ensure you had valid TN for a long enough period.

    H1B to TN

    Applying for H1-B, which is a still a non-immigrant status, does nothing to harm current or future TNs. It does not "show" anything with regards to immigration intent.

    AOS Passport expired (TN to GC)

    Since I-140 is not work authorization, and I-485 submission prevents getting a (new) TN, you would need an H1-B. Thus AC21 has absolutely no application to getting or extending TN.
