Unhappy Visitor visa ext denied. I94 still valid. Leave or stay?

Hi,

My mother in law came to visit us last year (June 08) and we applied a visitor visa extension for her in oct 08. Since the approval/denial did not come on time, she left the country in dec '08. She came back to USA after staying a month in India, in Jan '09. Recently (april '09) we recieved a letter from USCIS that the visitor visa extension application has been denied. She has valid I-94 till June '09.

My question is:

1. Should she leave the country immediately?
2. Is her visa automatically expired since the extension is denied?

Thanks
DK

Thumbs up

No, She does not need to leave the country nor does her visa expire. You had applied for extension of the date stamped on the I-94, not her visa. The letter you received denying the extension no longer applies.

I assume she has a 10yr multiple entry visa. Since she exited the country prior to her previous I-94 expiring, the extension application was basically abandoned. When she reentered the country in Jan, she got a fresh I-94 which is current and valid.

This is my opinion and may not be correct. Consult a lawyer if you require legal advice.
