We have filed for my h1b extension along with my wife’s h4 extension in September 2020. My extension was approved in December 2020 but there is no progress in my wife’s H4 extension progress we haven’t even received appointment for biometrics till date. California service center processing time for h4 extension is 17- 22 months so I do understand it will take time due to the current situation.
I94 expired in September 2020. Extension was filed before expiration.
My question is does she have to leave the country after 180 days (feb 2021) if we don’t get the approval status?
Will her stay be considered illegal after feb 2021(180days)?
This is something I heard from someone and I haven’t found any information related such anywhere. I was just aware that she is not suppose to leave the country while the extension process is still in progress.
