Default please help

hi,
we are a couple, both living in U.S. illegaly.
having a 2year old child born in U.S. (citizen already).

i overstayed after my tourist visa expired (by 3years already).
my partner is holding a tourist visa for 10 years, but he overstayed the period he was admited to stay in country (by 5years).

Would any immigration lawyer be able to help us legalize?
would it help if we could get our employer to sponsor us?

we are seeking help and some answers.
so please HELP.

thank you Tanya

If yo're not here legally, no, I do not beleive that there is anyway to regularize your situation as it is not possible (so I understand) to adjust from a tourist visa to any legal immigrant visa. Therefore having an employer sponsor you wouldn't help.

The fact that your child is a USC is irrelevant and if, or rather when found you will (all) be subject to deportation procedures.

My first thought is - get in touch with one a.s.a.p.! IF this is going to happen (legalizing), you're going to need a good immigration lawyer. I agree with the other posters... I'm afraid it doesn't look good... you need an experienced immigration attorney's advice.
