Hi,I came to usa on L1 in 2004 from Uk , and it was valid for 1 yr and i could renew again, i was late in opening my restaurant by 2 months, my lawyer changed my visa too E2 without telling me. I renewed my E2 every 2 yrs. I was running my restaurant up till march 26th 2012, and on that day i had a car accident. I had a broken foot and my wife has Neck, Shoulder and back injury and we had to close the restaurant. My self and my wife were undergoing through the treatments, and due to a lot of preassure of finance difficulties and trying to live without any income, my wife had a Triple Bypass surgery and she was out of the hospital today, Now we have a big problem and that is my visa Our E2 visa expires end of july 2012, I know it will not be renewed as i dont have a business. Now my wife will not be able to travel back to uk for 3 months and i cannot leave her alone by her self. How do we get an extended stay?. I owe a lot of hospital bills and IRS totalling about $150,000. I do not want to leave usa and cheat out of my debts. Is there any way i can get a visa, so i can start a business again and pay of my debts? Florida State Attorny has granted me 3 yrs to pay all the IRS debts. I need at least another 2 yrs stay to clear everything,, How do i do that? I can just leave the country and forget everything, but my upbringing does not allow that. When i die i do not want to owe any thing to any one, Please help........................
State/Country relating to question: Florida
Nothing at the moment as i am tottaly confused
You actually got more time on the E visa than on the L, so maybe it wasn't a mistake. But unfortunately, for you to change to a different type of visa, they will require proof that your business was still running to allow you to stay in E status and since you closed your business down awhile ago, you will not have that evidence and USCIS will not grant you A visa just to stay to be able to pay the IRS. If your status expires un July and your spouse cannot leave the U.S. for another 3 months after that, it is not a big deal. Why? Because you don't get any automatic penalty until 180 days of being illegal. That's 6 months. So if she leaves in 3 or 4 months after July, there is no automatic penalty for her. She should keep the medical evidence to prove why she couldn't travel so that in the future if she and you want to apply for a new status, you should be able to get it. Please let me know if you have any additional questions. I would be happy to answer them for you without additional charge. If there is a delay in getting back to you it is either because I am answering other questions or I had to log off, but I will be back with you as soon as possible. My goal is to provide you with top-notch service - please don't forget to leave me feedback if that is available for you to do so and a bonus is always appreciated.

Nothing new which i did not know.
Sorry, calling my bank to take action.................
Excuse me? What do you mean another scam? You can ask for a refund and it will be given to you, but I take offense that you think that my service to you was a scam. As I said, in my original answer, IF you have additional questions, please ask them. I am not a mind-reader. I don't kow what you know and what you do not know. And if my response to you is not good news, THAT IS NOT MY FAULT. I do not write the laws in this country and am not responsible for the broken system of Immigration laws. Nor am I responsible for any violations that you committed even though an accident happened that was not your fault. It isn't my fault either and again, I take offsense that you are blaming me for this and taking it out on me. What else can I answer for you to make you feel like you are NOT getting scammed?
iN STEAD OF HELPING,,,,, YOU ARE VERY RUDE......
YOU WILL BE REPORTED !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
No sir, you are the one that is very rude. I am the one that is trying to help. YOU were the one that stated that this was a scam and YOU were the one that stated that you would contact your bank and take appropriate action. So you insulted me, this service and threatened me and you are threatening me again by saying "YOU WILL BE REPOTED!" Sir, report me all you want. I have almost 30,000 accepts and many MANY MANY happy clients that I have helped over many years. That you THINK that this is scam is not my problem. I gave you valid information that is true and accurate. If you would like to calm down and act maturely, I would be more than happy to continue to help you, but if you are going to continue to threaten me and insult me, I will just Opt Out and not waste my valuable time anymore. Let me know how you would like to proceed. Thank you.
Guess you have nothing to say because you know that I am correct. But that's ok. My conscience is clear. I gave you an expert and professional resonse. My service was good and the proof is written down. I will continue to help the many thousands of customers that came her and deserve to be helped. I wish you good luck anyway.
