Hello, I am James. I will be helping you today. I do not get a salary here. But just like you, I want to get credit for doing my job. You are the only person who can help me get credit before leaving this site today. So please do not forget to do that by giving me a positive rating with 3 or more stars or any of the smiling faces.
Also, if you want me to be your personal immigration Expert, just write “FOR JAMES" at the beginning of any future, new questions, and I will be happy to help you as your personal Expert.
During this process, please remember that I do not work for the government. My job is to be honest with you about your situation, and sometimes that means I have to deliver bad news. When you are giving a rating, please do not rate the state of the law or the outcome of your situation. I cannot control those things. I am just a messenger.
I know a negative outcome might create negative feelings for you, but those feelings should be directed to the US laws, not me. Thank you for your understanding.
ANSWER: According to the law, you accrued sufficient unlawful presence to warrant a 3-year ban from returning to the US. (Reference: INA § 212 (a)(9)(B))
So you will likely have a difficult time getting back. The only option available will be to apply at the US consulate abroad, with approval of a nonimmigrant visa waiver (Hranka Waiver), seeking to waiver the inadmissibility for the accrual of unlawful presence, as well as the unauthorized employment.
The problem here is that you might face a situation where it is difficult to claim that you do continue to maintain nonimmigrant intent, as your overstay can sometimes tend to indicate a desire to remain in the US permanently. So you will have to prepare a strong waiver case explaining that you did not intend to remain permanently in the US, so that you can continue to show you have temporary nonimmigrant intent, which is a requirement of theTN.
I urge you to leave the US immediately, so that you are not dragging this out for longer. The longer you remain unlawfully, the more difficult it will be to come back.
You definitely should contact an attorney who can assist you with this.
I know these issues can be confusing. If you want to talk on the phone for a fee, I can send you an offer for that.
I hope I have answered your questions. Kindly rate my customer service with a positive rating so I get credit for doing my job. This is very important. You can do that by giving me 3 or more stars, or any of the smiling faces. And you can keep asking questions even after you have given a rating.
REMINDER: You are not rating the state of the law or the outcome of your situation, which I cannot control. You are rating my customer service. Believe me that I always want to give you good news. But if the outcome is not what you wanted, blame the government and the law, not me. I am only a messenger.
