My husband’s OPT is expiring on the 15th of August 2020. Due to COVID-19 we cannot leave the country so we are thinking of changing our status to B2 (our grace period is till the 15th October).I have some questions:
- Our kids are on Medicaid but are not applying for status change since they are Americans. Do we need to report about their Medicaid under “Public Benefits”?
- What date can I put under “New Status and effective date of change”?(Part2. 3.b)Can I put any dates after the 15th of August? or the 15th of October?
- I believe I can request extension for 6 months. Am I right?
Thank you very much.
