    <BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><div class="ip-ubbcode-quote-title">quote:</div><div class="ip-ubbcode-quote-content">I entered legally on an educational visa. Before it expired, I met a man and we wished to marry.

    We have not been able to marry, visa is now expired and I am overstaying. Divorce will HOPEFULLY be finished soon, but I am concerned about him possibly getting into trouble for helping me.

    I have helped him with household things, babysitting, light business help, and so on (I do not have a GC).

    We just want to get by without getting into trouble until we can legally take care of this, because it is my understanding that if I leave the country when my overstay is more than 180 days delinquent, I would be refused re-entry for 10 years.

    I have a SS#, but my other identification has expired (except passport, which soon will expire). </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

    I don't know how much all of this can cost (immigration attorneys and processes), but I am sure it is too much for us on our own.

    He is the only reason I want to be in the US anyway. If we cannot be together, it is just as well to return to my family. I am not after the GC or citizenship or anything. </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

    Too bad someone, you actually seem like a smart person. You could probably help alot of people if you wanted to.
    I guess you have a need to hurl insults at people you never met and know nothing about. Maybe you have had some bad experiences in your life that you have chosen to not let go and it has made you a bitter person, anxious to spew hateful words, maybe because you feel that way about yourself....
    Hurting people hurt others.
    Just something to think about.
    I have no hard feelings towards you.
    Forgive those who have hurt you and stop taking it out on the world.

    these "poor people" are nothing more than visa-cheating liars and they should be shown the door....nothing was stopping the OP from abiding by the terms of the visa privilege except his/her own lack of responsibility and lack of respect for our laws....eff this $hithead (and you too)...

    so tell me needhelpfast (and you do)....why should the US of A reward anyone who has thumbed their unwashed noses at our laws? WHY? And before you mumble some krap about 'hard working well-intentioned..yaddy yaddy' ask yourself...what will you say to those who are obeying our laws and playing by the rules without deceit or hidden agendas? Why would you support some visa cheat $hitbag ahead of a more responsible person? (hint: because you are a moron)

    Wow, someone, helpful as usual, and so empathetic...

    Have you considered consulting mental health professionals for your issues?

    Seems like you have a lot of unresolved anger and you keep taking it out on these poor people who came to this forum for advise and help.

    I have the name of a good therapist I can refer you to...just a thought, think about it ok?

    You are helping no one on this forum with your comments.

    (to the OP)what hor$e$hit....you, as a visa holder, knew perfectly well you promised to return when you said....instead, all this drama about "love" and marriage,etc...but...the airlines continued to operate and you, the illegal irresponsible alien $hitbag, decided not to live up to the privilege (not a right, sorry) that you were given...so...whine or weep all you want, there is nothing stopping you from leaving MY country and facing any penalties except your own lack of responsibility and your level of being a dirtbag illegal slimeball visa cheat...get the eff out of MY country and take your stupid American whatever with you...whine whine whine....blame yourself, dirtbag.

    You are smart and thank god you are getting your self out of this situation for a while.. i know you dont want to get your friend in trouble but if you stay you will diffinitly get in some serious trouble.. that women is vicious so my take is she will call.. so tell him what your going to do and tell him to lie to her if she ask him that you and him broke up..after the divorce go through just suprise her and come back but wait till you get your work permit before she finds out you are back..

    Thank you Baby,

    I appreciate your taking the time to post. You are right, a divorce is much shorter than a 10 year wait. I do have a social security card, but no longer a permit to work, so I will need to be very careful and perhaps creative. If he gives me any money, it may cause him problems in the divorce. And if I work, it may cause me problems.

    I am still considering my options. I do have one friend I can trust who would gladly let me stay with her, although I do not like to put her at any risk. Also she lives in another state, which would help me to "disappear" but I surely do not like the idea of being completely separated from him for however long this process will take. Still, I will have to consider the risks and options. Thank you again.

    listen AO just keep out of trouble and wait for the divorce when that is finale you can get married to him.. this is the only way they over look your over stay in america.. i know it seems like the divorce proceedure is long but its better than waiting ten years to come back.. hold on it will go fast... by the time do you have social security card and a work permit.. if yes work with it.. also they look at you paying taxes so just continue with getting a job and paying taxes

    Unfortunately, it seems that bifurcation will not be possible in this state. It is done, but very, very, VERY rarely, and only under the most extraordinary circumstances. The attorney did not offer any hope at all on this count.

    Now I will have to look for other options. Thank you so much, though, for your help.

    Thank you, Davdah,

    I would laugh about the term "fishtank" except that it seems it comes from sad circumstances. I am sorry to hear about that.

    And she can perhaps easily guess. She knows my name (which reflects my nationality) and the children have picked up a few words, which are going to give her a big clue.

    I hope that you are right about the court order. I think the bifurcation might be the best option. I hope to learn more tomorrow.

    Thank you again for all of your help. It is most deeply appreciated. I wish you all of the best with your (wife?) as well.

    Thank you, Davdah,

    We are still waiting to hear whether bifuraction is possible in this situation.

    Perhaps I need to make another post. The ex knows about me, and probably can assume that I am foreign-born. Her attorney is grasping at straws and making as much trouble as he can, because my fiance's case for custody is fairly strong.

    If she knows my name, and nothing more, how easy would it be for her or her attorney to discover my overstay status?

    (Oh, and thank you for explaining "fishtank" as I have never heard that expression. And thank you for the reassurance on my fiancee's behalf. I am sure he could easily answer questions concerning our relationship, and we have known each other for some time. Thank you again.)

    Thank you, I will have him check on this for us. He was not able to speak to his attorney today, but the attorney should be back in town next week.

    I do not know if this would be possible. I have tried to find out online, but from what I have been able to find of divorce cases in this state, it seems that bifurcation is up to the judge and is only for very special circumstances? I hesitate to inform a judge of the reason we wish to do this.

    If need be, it might be safer for him if I am not around right now. I didn't realize (nor did he) that he could be in so much trouble about this, and it seems that his ex knows of me now. It may be more a matter of protecting him now.

    I do wish this could be easier.

    Thank you all so much, once again.
