Hong kong visitor, extension of stay

Good day sir, ma'am!

I hold a Philippine passport & I have been given 14 days from the day i arrived Hong Kong from the Philippines. During my stay as a visitor, I have applied for a dependent visa since my wife (a Hong Kong permanent resident) will give birth here in Hong Kong & I plan to work here related to the course that I am currently taking in the Philippines. 

While I am waiting for the approval letter from the Hong Kong immigration, I have also applied for extension of stay due to my wife's situation. Although, the immigration has given me only 2 days to make a leave for departing Hong Kong. It was quite depressing the thought of leaving my wife, she couldn't go back Philippines since she is already on her 6th month of pregnancy. So i'm planning if i could stay in Macau for the meantime & go back to Hong Kong. Is it possible that the immigration will extend my stay in Hong Kong after my trip from Macau? Will the immigration look for any significant documents? Or is there any other ways for me to stay in Hong Kong for at least a month more? Please to reply to this. Thank you very much!

Sorry, this is the wrong place to ask. We are travelers, not immigration lawyers. Looks like your first mistake was not arranging this BEFORE you left the Philippines.

I would suggest contacting your embassy and asking them for help, and also asking them for a referral to a lawyer.

Your embassy cannot help, they have no jurisdiction and would not give out advice

An immigration lawyer is good advice but also go to HK immigration Tower in Wanchai and see what they say.
