L2 Dependent visa got denied. How much is the grace period they can stay?

Dear Team,

My L2 dependents extension got denied. Their I-94 is expired and don’t have any valid visa. We haven’t received the denial letter yet. How much days they can stay in US from the day they denied the application?
Application applied : Mar 18 2021
Application denied date : Sep 30th 2021

Please advise.

Thank you.

The unlawful presence accrual starts from the date of denial of the application. If you stay in the US for more than 180 days, you will be barred from entering the US for 3 years. If you stay more than 365 days you can be barred for 10 years.

If the primary L1 is in status, you can re-apply extension using NPT. Talk to a lawyer to find out your options.
