Some practical advice on Schengen visa

Jump to last reply

So I've been in Spain for about two months at this point and was initially only planning to stay the allotted 90 days but have to deal with a rather serious situation that's going to require I stay here a total of five months rather than three. I realize this will put me in violation and I'm wondering what the best approach is given that. It's an option to leave and then re-enter before my initial 90 days is up but I imagine that doesn't reset the 90 day counter, it just prolongs it by the length of time I'm out of the Schengen area. What is the risk when leaving Spain after five months? How likely is it I will get fined etc?

Thanks for the time
