Legal options after overstaying your visit

On Behalf of | Jan 1, 2020 | immigration law

People overstay their visit in the U.S. for various reasons and at Vickerstaff Law Office, PSC, we are aware of how daunting this is when it leads to a court case. In Kentucky, people who find themselves in this position often become extremely stressed out or even hopeless regarding their case and the impact it will have on their future. However, multiple legal strategies prove useful for many people in this situation and help some continue to stay in the U.S. Taking the proper approach often means the difference between retaining residence in the U.S. and returning to one’s former country. 

Sometimes, people overstay their visas due to a simple misunderstanding. Some people become so busy and overwhelmed by daily stressors that they forget to pay attention to key dates, while others have found themselves in this position because they were unable to extend their visas for financial reasons or due to some other factor. These cases are often tough to work through, but it is critical for you to understand the legal options you have and prepare for immigration court carefully if these challenges have arisen. 

If you have family members who are living with you, approaching your case correctly is even more important. Moreover, people who have overstayed their visas should not give in to feelings of hopelessness and desperation. In many instances, these problems are worked out in court and immigrants are able to look forward to a bright future in the U.S. Visit our immigration court page to read more related to overstaying a visit and similar legal matters.
