My spouse h1b was filed before i94 expiration and it is under processing in normal mode and yet to receive approval.
Due to attorney’s mistake , My h4 extension was filed a day after i94 expiration with NPT ( Non Pro Tunc).
i94 expired on 3-FEB-2020
H4 extension filed on 4-FEB-2020 (Received by USCIS)
I have received h4 receipt notice and went for biometrics on 26-FEB-2020. Currently the status shows “Finger print were taken” at USCIS online.
In such case (NPT filed) ,
- Is there any limit on the maximum number of days to stay in USA legally.
- Will I accrue unlawful presence if my spouse h1b extension denied? If so , will there be any Ban ?
- What are my options to maintain lawful status ?
