This isn't exactly an immigration
question, but I don't know who else to turn to for help. My boyfriend of a year and 3 months is a US citizen, but took a job in Mexico back in February. He worked and the job was put on hold, so he was going to come home. The ministry over there was supposed to pay him for the work he completed and as of today still hasn't paid him. He tried to come home, but they informed him that he owes taxes on the money he made while working there. He owed $5,000 and now they have tacked on another 2 months @ $2500. He has contacted his bank, but they will not help him because he is in Mexico. He has very little money left and is having to stay in a hotel. I have helped him as much as I can and he has no one else to help. Is there someone he could talk to regarding his situation? He needs help......he has just enough money to pay for his hotel and meals while there. Any help that you could provide would be great. He just wants to get back home.
JA: Have you filed any paperwork with the USCIS (U.S. Citizenship
and Immigration Services) yet?
Customer: Don't think is falls under the immigration category.
JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?
Customer: He contacted a lawyer there in Mexico to try to help him get the money owed to him, but he was wanting to charge him an outrageous fee and my boyfriend doesn't have the money to pay him right now. He has money in his US bank account, but can't get to it while in Mexico.
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: No. I think I summarized it the best that I can.
