Travelled out of US after H4 visa expiry


During the time of H4 visa renewal in US, we just noticed my son’s passport expired. Indian embassy gives us 3 years from expiry to renew the passport. So, I thought we are good at passport renewal timing while in US. But, to avoid staying more days in US after H4 Visa expiry, my Dependents travelled to India with an emergency passport for my son within a month of H4 visa expiry. They completed the drop box appointment. Currently the status shows as Refused with below description.
