    Default Overstay, Illegally Employed and Filing Adjustment of Status

    i have overstayed my visa by 10 years. i recently married a USC and I'm about to file for AOS. my question is:
    on form I-130 and I-485, there's a question about employment,
    should i disclose the fact that i have been working illegally or just
    put down N/A as the answer?

    one would assume that the USCIS is not dumb and they must assume that
    in the 10 years that I'm here in the US i must have worked illegally.

    so on the one hand, i can admit to have broken the law and on the other
    hand, by not disclosing the information and signing the forms where i certify
    under penalty of perjury under the US law that the info is true and correct is
    also braking the law.

    I'm lost here,

    please advice.

    It would probably be in your best interest to fill out the forms with the correct information.

    NEVER lie on your immigration forms. NEVER. That's the fastest way to a permanent ticket out of here.

    You must disclose your employment.

    I think it would be sensible for you to work with an immigration lawyer.
