View Full Version : My friend's wife;s I 94 is expired a year ago but his I 797 is valid

One of my friend's wife's I 94 was expired a year ago. He was under the assumption that his lawyer filed for her extension when his H1B got extended, but he was not careful enough to verify that. My friend's H1B is good until Sep 2017.
Shall my friend file I-539? He inquired and it seems that her wife's H4 extension approval will be denied (and she may be barred from entering US if she leaves USA). She is US currently. Technically she is out of status.
Does anyone has similar case?
Any advise would be very helpful.

Thank you
