Hi, I need advice from immigration lawyer
JA: What state are you in? It matters because laws vary by location.

JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

Good Afternoon

If you have overstayed you will be rejected any other visa. You are best to leave and then apply to come back If you leave on your own then you will be ok. If they discover you have overstayed they will deport you and you will be stopped from coming in for 5 years.

I hope this makes sense and is of assistance. If there is nothing further have a great new year and
