Is there a mediator that can both, help to avoid international lawsuits and insure such debts are paid?

Will U.S. customs turn away a visa-holder due to length of stay?

I purchased plane tickets for a Guatemalan friend to visit the U.S. from April to September (she has a tourist visa). Her lawyer has since advised her that if her return flight is more than 20 days after her arrival, customs may turn her away based on what sounds like a suspicion that she's here to work.
