View Full Version : visitor visa extension filed

04-27-2004, 10:16 AM
my mother arrived in US in November 2003,and she has stay until May 18 2004 on I-94.
I have filed for her extension(with original I-94)of 4 months.last week i got the reciept from INS.Reciept says that it takes 60 to 90 days for this kind of case.
so what do i do if i dont get answer on my application before May 18(which is expiry date on I-94).
can my mother stay with me till we get the answer for application(rejected or accepted)
and also that i have submitted original I-94. if she decides to leave before May 18 ,can she submitt copy of I-94 at time of departure?

She can stay until you hear back from USCIS(formerly INS).

You should not have submitted original I-94. Only copy.

thanks for prompt reply,
i have also read in this forum about visa cancellation thing if overstayed,
she is here on return ticket of Kuwait Airways which has flights only on saturdays or perhaps wednesdays
so there may be gap of couple of days between we hear from INS and she leaves.in that case will she be candidate for visa cancellation?
and if she decides to go before original authorized stay can i submitt photocopy of I-94 at port of departure?

Please advise me on above questions.
thank you again immihelp for wonderful services.
