    Default Overstay After J1

    What can happen to a person if they first entered the country with a legal J1 visa, DS2019 form and SEVIS and stay in the country after the visa is terminated?

    They can be caught and deported. They can be barred from entering the country again for years.

    If the visa was sponsored by a family, can the family be legally prosecuted or hold accountable for the person overstaying?

    The visa is almost certainly not sponsored by a family. Au Pairs may be placed with a family, but the sponsor is the organization that did the placing. However, if the family continues to employ you without you having work authorization, they could potentially be in trouble.
