    What are the chances that USCIS issued an incorrect date on the receipt notice? Does it happen?
    >>> I don't know. Evenif that was the case, how are you goin to prove that and convince USCIS?

    USCIS receipt date and WAC number do no match, hence am tending to think likewise.
    >>> As per my knowledge they don't have to match.

    If the date on the receipt notice is before your I-94 expiry date, then you are good. If not, then it is a problem. This is why one should not wait until the last minute to file the extension. USCIS gives you 6 months in advance to file the extension and still you wait until the very last minute.


    If the extension was filed before the I-94 expiry date, then ask the employer to submit proof like FedEx receipt notice etc. That might or might not work. IN a situationlike this, it is advisable to upgrade the case to premium and get the result within 15 days. If not, it might take 3-4 moinths and later if the extension gets denied, then the time spend in U.S after your I-94 expiry date will be considered as illegal stay and 3-4 months is a long period of illegal stay which will cause issues later.

    H1 Extension - Late Filing

    HI, Need Help Urgently...

    I am an IT professional working in a reputed Indian company. My H1 visa was due for an extension this year and my employer filed my h1 extension in time, however the receipt date given by USCIS was 6 days after my I-94 expiry date. Now I received a RFE from USCIS requesting evidence to prove valid non-immigrant status at the time of filing. My I-94 expired on 18-Jun and USCIS receipt date is 24-Jun.

    My WAC number has the computer work day as 179 which means the receipt date was created on 17-Jun (a day before my I-94 expired). I am confused now whether the filing was done in time or not (my employer says they filed on time)?

    Can someone please help me understand the documentary evidence that I need to provide to support my in-time filing and what are my options going forward?

    Thanks in advance.
