I do not know why you are not responding, but you are not charged per question, per response, nor per answer. So after I give you my answer, you can continue to ask me questions without additional charge until you are satisfied. I apologize if it is a site issue that you posted and the post did not go through.
Unfortunately, I have bad news for you. I just ask that you not shoot the messenger. Shooting the messenger is either leaving a negative rating (usually reserved for rude or unprofessional experts) or not leaving a positive rating at all.
If you both jumped ship, there's really nothing you can do to "fix" your status except applying for Asylum or similar protection. The crewman visa is one of the worst visas to have. If you came on a ship that you worked on and stayed, not even marrying a U.S. Citizen will help you. You would have to apply from outside for any status that you might be eligible for and if you left the U.S. and you have been inside for more than a year, it is a 10 year bar which you would need a very hard waiver to overcome. I am truly sorry for the bad news. Just please understand that I am telling you the truth and trying to keep you out of trouble so that you do not fall into the hands of people that just want to take your money and tell you what you want to hear. So please be careful.
My goal is to provide you with excellent service – if you feel you have received anything less, please reply back as I am happy to address follow-up questions and there is no additional charge. Also, should you need to chat on the phone, private email or need help reviewing documentation, I am happy to do so for a small additional cost. Let me know if you are interested in these – I am happy to give you more details! If you have no further questions (at this time) please leave a positive rating for my service. I would sincerely ***** ***** You can do that by clicking on the 3rd, 4th or 5th stars or smiley faces if you see them. If you do not see any stars or smiley faces, you may have to scroll up to the top of the page or click on my name and they should come out. Also, your session does NOT close when leaving a positive rating, so you can continue to ask additional questions without additional charge. Thank you for your understanding.
