No it doesn't help. You would be better off investing in PRC. Once you disobey MOM they never forget. My nephew is in the same position. He and the baby are living with me, she is stuck in the Philippines. She was here originally on a 1 years LTVP and went it expired, was given 14 days to exit the country. She has been there now since Dec 2008. We have had letters from the North East Governer, 2 MP's, 2 Minister's and the former headmaster of Raffles (who was one of the Minister's teacher) and all to no avail. If you screw with MOM you might as well forget it. If you do a search of these threads, you will find another on here who has been trying for over 8 years to get his wife back here.

I'd say it's time for you to immigrate to China.
