My H1B extension was denied on Sept 12th, employer received denial notice on sept 18th and I departed US on Sept 25th. My I94 had expired on March 27th.
I am now applying for H4 Visa and need help with following question on DS160 form
Have you ever been unlawfully present , overstayed the amount of time granted by an immigration official or otherwise violated the terms of a U.S visa?
Should I answer it as Yes or No? Would the period between Sept 12th to Sept 25th accounted as unlawful presence and should be mentioned ? Because I did not violate any visa rules or terms as the question says.
