I am a woman from Peru who came to USA on a ten year touris visa. After the first year here I got pregnant from a american man who said he would marry me. While waiting for him my time had expired for me in USA. My son is a American citizen that is 5 years old. My boyfriend has another woman. What do I need to do to be able to remain in USA with my son? What do I need to do to be able to get a job to support my son?
Because you do not have a legal status i the US, you need to discuss your situation with an experienced immigration attorney. The U.S. Government does not give you a status simply because you have a U.S. citizen son (since he is not 21). But there may be other options depending on when your B-2 status expired.
You should consult with an experienced immigration attorney who will interview you in depth to see what options you may have. You have presumably been out of status for more than five years. Simply having a five year old American son does not grant you any status, nor does having been lied to by the child's U.S. citizen father.
