TN VISA tricky questions


I am a Canadian citizen who just got a job offer from an US company. I have the following questions:

  1. When you cross the border and ask for the TN Visa, are you allowed to go back into Canada right away? I am not sure if they will approve my TN so I want to make sure I have it before I make arrangements to move to the US. So ideally I would cross the border, get my TN approved, go back to Canada, and look for apartments in the US and move in around 2 weeks. Is that possible?
  2. I don't want to quit my job in Canada until I make sure that my TN gets approved. Is that possible or once you have your TN approved you are suppossed to quit right away or even before? I would quit the day after I get my TN basically, but would like to give 2 weeks, thats why I am asking.
  3. I have a technical degree in fashion design + over 10 years of experience. Fashion Design is not in the NAFTA list but Industrial Design is. I am thinking about applying as such. Would this be an issue if the job description/job offer calls for Industrial Designer?
  4. Could my common-law partner (we are not married) come with me as a visitor for 3 months and look for jobs from the US, and once he gets a job offer then cross the border and apply for a TN?
  5. I have heard that the agents at the Quebec/US borders are very picky right now with TNs. I heard that the best post is the Toronto Airport to get your TN approved. To go to that post, would I have to actually take a flight? or can I just go to the airport, get the TN approved and then go back to Montreal?

Thank you so much for your help!

NVC Case FE Review note

Hi everyone, my family and I are under the F3 category and we just received a notice from NVC that our documents have been approved and that we are Documentarily Qualified. My only concern is this message that we received today in addition to the acceptance: ​ " [Name of petitioner] does not meet the minimum income requirement to sponsor the intending immigrants for this case. The consular officer will make a decision regarding this requirement at the time of the interview. For more information, please visit . To avoid delays, an additional Affidavit of Support Form I-864 for a joint sponsor may be submitted." ​ We already have a petitioner and a household sponsor (the household sponsor's income is above the required level), but still unsure why we received this. Has anyone else received this message? All of our documents say "Approved" on NVC. Does this mean we have to find another sponsor? Can we show the consular officer our
