A: What you are planning is called visa fraud. I will explain:

1. When you applied for a visitor's B-2 visa its content specifically mentioned to state purposes of the trip truthfully. When you submitted the information at the end of that federal visa application there was a proviso for penalties for submission of false or frivolous information. That is already a reason to cancel your visa,

2. Also, you committed perjury by submitting a false document (insurance), which is a visa fraud. Another reason for a visa cancellation.

3. When you come to the U.S. you plan to engage in unlawful employment. Which is a visa violation and will also impact your future ability to come to the United States in the future,

4. There are various ways the U.S. Government uses to discover such violations, including social media, telephone and e-mail communications and posting like yours when they scrutinize a subject.

But, there is a completely legitimate way for you to stay and work in the U.S. You may consult with us and we will provide you a legally accurate guidance how to initiate that lawful process.

A: I agree. A visitor visa is meant for those who visit family or wish to see the U.S. it is not meant for work, so your son must seek a scholarship and/or support himself.

Once he reaches the age of twenty one, he may choose to petition you, but he must prove that he can financially support you. That can require a joint sponsor, where he is unable to do so!

Avoid doing something that will permanently disqualify you from lawful permanent resident status, even from your son! Seek legal advice from a competent and experienced immigration attorney before there are any other complications.
