You must visit the Shanghai PSB office (Public Security Bureau) and ask them what you need to do to get a visa extension.  I do not understand what do you mean by "convert", do you wish to change the type of visa you have now?.  If you wish to work, and your employer is allowed to hire foreigner, then you can get a work permit and a residence permit at same PSB office, but make sure you do have the "Registration of Temporry AResidence Permit fom with you when you go there.

I doubt seriously you will be granted a one year extension on your F visa on a first request.  Most extensions are for 30 days only, and mybe they would consider granting a second extension afterwards, but that's it without leaving the country.

Good luck to you

You will likely need a new one. Call a visa agent.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
