i came to the us with my 1st child in 2011 while pregnant with my second child. before my 6months stay expired, i applied for an extension and got another 4 months and after that another 4months so in total i got 8 months extension for after baby care. prior to my coming here, my husband would always beat me up and abuse me so much that i lost two pregnancies and had a very hard time while pregnant with the first child.with the second child, i spent most of the pregnancy here in the US and away from him and his family so i was ok. now i am scared of going back to my country and in the process, overstayed 5months in the US.he doesnt want a divorce and is threatening to report my overstay to immigrations and US embassy.please what are the options for me and my 2kids?
