Good morning Alyssa Reed:
Thank you for your attention.
My husband, my son (23) and I: We arrived from Bolivia to this country with tourist visa on 01-22-2004. We went to a lawyer and changed the tourist visa for an E1 and E2 visa, where we only qualified my husband and I, and my son who at that time was 23 years old did not approve because the lawyer in the application was wrong in age, presenting the form as minor.
Every two years we renewed the investor visa, until 2012, where for the second time the lawyer was mistaken again entrusting the form filling to his secretary and she was wrong in many respects and also in my address.
It was very late when the lawyer noticed the big problem. The lawyer tried to appeal and they did not accept. Since then my husband and I are without documentation.
However we never stop paying taxes, we are good citizens and we have no criminal record of any kind.
My son also ran out of documentation since 2004, however he has his tax Id, and has paid taxes since then, and also has no criminal history of any kind.
In 2006 my grandson arrived and he already has the DACA visa. He is 16 years old and he is under our responsibility.
Perhaps you should visit the person that you have referenced in your posting and consult in private and in person. Apparently , you are out of status since 2012. Good luck to you,
Perhaps you should send specific missives to the intended recipient, instead of broadcasting them on a public website.
The foregoing is for general information purposes and does not establish an attorney-client relationship.
This sounds like a difficult situation. The problem is that, since you have been without status for so long, it will be very difficult, if not impossible, to get another status. However, right now the administration is not necessarily targeting people without removal orders or criminal charges for removal. However, if you do end up in removal proceedings, you may have some options (with the help of a very good attorney).
