My wife I, want to do a Legal Guardianship for our grandaughter Miho Suzuki. We will become her Legal Guardian. We are hoping that a Legal Guardianship will allow Miho to be included in my Health Plan which is Health Net. We already know that it will not change the fact that she is out of status. We just want her to be included in my Health Net.

Miho Suzuki has Japanese citizenship and is currently out of status.

Miho's mother, Agnes Suzuki came to the US on a Visitors Visa on July 11, 2009. On January 11, 2010 she will be out of status. She plans to overstay and remain in the US permanently.

My grandaughter's entry into the US was different from her mother's even though they came here together. Miho came here on a Visa Waiver instead of a Visitor Visa. Miho is already out of status.

Agnes is married to a Japanese citizen who is still living in Japan. Agnes is originally from the Philippines and only moved to Japan because she married a Japanese citizen.

I am Agnes's Step-Father. I am married to Agnes's mother.
Agnes's mother is originally from the Philippines. She will become a US citizen in about 2 years because of having married me.

We originally wanted to legally adopt Miho Suzuki but an Adoption Lawyer told us that it would be complicated, expensive and time consuming due to our particular situation.

Again, My wife I, want to do a Legal Guardianship for our grandaughter Miho Suzuki. We will become her Legal Guardian. We are hoping that a Legal Guardianship will allow Miho to be included in my Health Plan which is Health Net. We already know that it will not change the fact that she is out of status. We just want her to be included in my Health Net.

Can anyone tell us if doing a Legal Guardianship is a good idea or a bad idea?

If it is a good idea, Can anyone tell us who we should contact to have a Legal Guardianship done?

Also, We would welcome any suggestions to help Agnes and Miho stay here permanently.

People here have experience with legal employment-based immigration. You may want to post your question in our lawyer's forum and hope that you get a response. Otherwise I'd advise that you consult an attorney that practises immigration law.

#1 - I-94 will never be issued more than than 180 days for visitors visa.
#2 - Planning to overstay is willful violation.

This is an employment based immigration forum, get yourself a paid consultation from some attorney. Don't come back
