F1 and J1 Overstays: Unlawful Presence?

F1 and J1 Overstays don`t get unlawful presence for a 10-year ban if they had “Duration of Status” and never saw an immigration judge.

Hi friends! Attorney Marina Shepelsky here.

I want to talk to you about unlawful presence. There`s this little trick that if somebody is an F1, J1, or M visa overstay, they don`t accrue unlawful presence for the purposes of not being able to come back to US BAN and can file for things like Work Visas and so on.

If you have a situation like that, you`re F1 or J1 overstay, you need to talk to a lawyer. We are here for you. Give us a call!
