    but it seems like one of the easiest. My marriage is basically over, and I'm an illegal alien in this country. I can't decide if I want to hop back across the border and disappear, starting over with nothing and no work experience, stay here and ride out the legal process, or just quit life. Whatever I choose I will never get to see my son grow up. fml

    How come you won't be able to see your son grow up? Both parents have rights and getting legal status in the country will help you a lot in the future and eliminate any worries. Please don't give up - you have something to fight for.

    I'll never be able to get legal status here. I haven't worked in 4 years, I've just been a stay at home dad. I used to have a temporary resident permit but it expired and my application for extension was denied. I just stayed.

    Well, I can't really advise you on the legal side of things...but you admit that quitting life isn't your first option so there must be things that make you want to stay and fight, yes? You are unable to work in the country you are in now because of a denied permit? Is going back to your country of birth an option? Maybe get a job and help provide for your son. Even if he can't live with you, you can still be involved in his life. There's still hope.

    Once I go back, I'll never be re-allowed entry to this country. So once I leave, I'd likely never see him unless my wife brought him, and that would never happen.
