My Husband just crossed the border at Nogales. It was early Tuesday morning, and he said that exiting the car at aduana, it took 45 minutes to get to the front of the line. He says he’s never seen so many US vehicles exiting; trailers pulling cars, boats, cars and boats on the same trailer , US plate after US plate. He went to the global exit lane and said it took an hour just to get to that lane. Seems to be a mass exit. Are people afraid to keep their cars in Mexico because of a border closing?
I discovered to my horror that I was 4 days late for renewing my temporary resident Visa. I rushed to immigration in Chapala and was told that all I could do was either return to the US A and start all over again or go through a very lengthy paper process in Mexico. The woman at immigration suggested I go back to the States as it would be easier. I really cannot go back to the States for a number of personal reasons, including that someone I care about very much really needs my help right now. I have read through all of the information on this topic and cannot locate an answer to the following questions: Has anyone been through this situation recently and, if so, how did you resolve it? Is working with a lawyer to get one's Visa back on track expensive? If so how expensive? If one goes for the return to the United States option, how long would it take at a local consulate to file for a resolution of this problem? What is the punishment if a person is caught with an expired Visa? Does this lead to deportation, incarceration, a fine, and or the inability to leave Mexico and then return at some point in the future? Before I see a lawyer for help, I want to be as informed as possible Thanks for any information you can provide.
