  • B2 (I-539) Application to extend stay in US

    Hi Shah,

    We are trying to extend the stay of my-in-laws who are here on B2.

    Please clarify the following:

    1) When should we apply? USCIS recommends at least 45 days before your stay expires?
    Can we apply 2 -3 months prior to I-94 expiry?
    2) If the current duration is 6 months. Can we ask for another 6 months? Do we face any problems in future?

    3)Can we attach current return tickets and new itinerary (tickets yet to purchase), Is it OK to keep both tickets while applying or current
    tickets itself is sufficient?

    Please clarify.

    You should apply 90 days before expiring but you can apply anytime before expiring. The risk is that if the case is denied then it goes back to original date of the I 94. If the denial is issued after the expiry then they accrue unlawful presence as from that date.
    Also the multiple entry is usually cancelled if denied. But if approved then no problem.

    You can actually call us at 5107425887 and we can di a full consultation. Good luck
