What can they do (or have to do) for her to remain in the US?My son is a citizen, she is on a J-1 au pair visa with a 2 year residency requirement. Also she said she was on a 90 extension already and must leave the first week of Sept. This has come up rather suddenly. Update: So... what I have found out is; Her visa says(has) annotation N0008806479. Bearer is not subject to section 212(E). Two year rule does not apply. P-4-06027 Her visa expired in March and she is on a 6 months extension thru the au pair service. She has a reservation(flight) to leave to South Africa (home) on the 6th of September. He has asked her to marry and wants to know whether they need to marry now and what to do in order for her to get or retain "legal" status, and what exactly that entails?? And should she stay in the US until she has legal status? (Which seems to be the general consensus) Thank you (in advance) for your help.
