F1 OutofStatus - now ? how to get back in status ?

Recommended Posts

Hi All, I have a close relative who is in his undergraduate work in a US university since Fall of 2016. Due to unforeseen cirmstances,  He hasn't been able to enroll in full time credit status since Fall of 2017- and has been out of status since Fall 2017. He doesn't want to leave US as he is afraid that he may not be able to comeback.  His F1 visa stamp on the passport expires in June 2021.

What are the other legal avenues for him to be back to  F1 visa status -which doesn't ? What advise I should give ? Should we hire an attorney ? would there be any legal avenues ?

There are no avenues for him to go back to F1 status without leaving the US. F1 reinstatement is generally possible only if the person was out of status for less than 5 months, unless there are exceptional circumstances.
