Im not a us citizen. i was going to get married here in the US, and i overstayed my i-94 for over a year
the woman who i was about to marry cheated on me.
as a "condolence prize" she offered to marry me so i could stay here.
but i am a straight person and i refused her offer.
the only reason i stayed here was because of her. now, having no intentions of marrying her.
what are my options? should i just walk out the airport and kiss US goodbye for the next 10 years?
if it helps, i was not working all this time, and was living out of my savings ,Please help.
(im on a B-2 Visa)
I agree with my colleague. Having overstayed the length of time you did, you are barred from returning for 10 years unless you qualify for a waiver. Based on the limited info provided here you may not qualify for a waiver. It's best to speak with an immigration attorney in order to consider all your options. Good luck!
Good for you for refusing to commit visa fraud.
Unfortunately, you don't really have options after overstaying. If you stay, you will be constantly worried that immigration might find you and will not be allowed to work or have a driver's license. If you leave, you'll be barred to return for 10 years, unless you become eligible for a waiver down the road.
