Good day to all
My hubby is in the usa and does seasonal work,hence he only has a h2a visa.last year he was invovled in a work related accident and is still in the usa recieving medical treatment.we are busy with an immigration lawyer trying to sort out his visa as it has expired and he is now illegal in the country.he is a qualified mechanic and since the accident has nt been able to work and most likely will never be able to work as his shoulder was damaged and two operations later no improvement.this leaves him and his family in a crises,no work no income.he cant return to South Africa until medical treatment is finished and he has put in his claim against workmans comp.
During all of this we have decided that we would like to move to the usa.doing all the research over the last few months have learnt it is easier said than done.He is qualified but cant work so cant look for a sponsorship.I have no qualifications except as a nail technician so i dont think there is a chance of me finding sponsorship for work. We then thought maybe we start our own business which will allow us to emply usa citizens but i dont have the funds they want one to invest.
can anyone give me advice on how we can go about getting to the usa.we are desperate.hubby will get no work in south africa and we just feel that in usa we have a fair chance.south africa is a cruel and discriminating country with no future.
at this point in time i feel to just move and become illegal immigrants...lol
