So this may not be the recommended sub-forum to ask for advice, but here goes. This question is a proxy for my boss's scenario. My boss, a South African immigrant, entered the US in the early 90s under a tourist visa and never left. He went through a multitude of jobs and eventually partnered in a business, at where I am employed. During his stay he married, had two children (US born), and having not asked, I assume his wife holds a greencard or is now a citizen. I also believe his recently deceased father also went through the naturalization process. Anyway, I said I would investigate his situation (not in depth though). It appears he has had little to no hardships with immigration status during his stay, as he is able to run a profitable business with little to no issue. He requested that I look into finding out how he can gain greencard status. He does have a business/company at his disposal. He is not interested in seeking any legal status in the US if it involves being deported. Does anyone have suggestions on what he can do in this situation? Can even an attorney help him at this point?
