My in-laws I-94 expires on May 28th 2012. I applied for visitor visa extension on April 15th 2012 and the case status is in "Initial Review" stage as of May 20th 2012. I did receive the receipt notice.
1. If i don't get a decision letter by May28th, can they legally stay until we get the decision. If so how long can they stay? Is this information officially shown in uscis website? I can't find it nowhere.
2. If the extension decision comes back as "Rejected", they will be leaving ASAP obviously and we are prepared for that. But my big doubt is in that case will it mean they have illegally over stayed until we got the decision letter.
Again i could not find any official documentation that clearly states about their legal status while the extension decision is in processing. And we are really confused what to do at this stage.
Any help or advise is greatly appreciated,
