Extending Your Stay
Do you currently hold a visitor visa or
non-immigration visa? You may want to extend your visa status. This will be necessary in order
to legally remain within the United States without worry of deportation
or other consequences. Most requests for extensions will be granted with
justification, as long the requester is in good standing within the States.
This means that the applicant must be free of arrests or multiple re-entries
into the U.S. Applications for extensions or
status changes should be made at least 45 days prior to the expiration date of your current visa.
It is important that you complete the entire extension process in a timely
manner because it is illegal to remain within the U.S. after a visa expires.
There are really no alternatives to avoiding the visa process. You must
either apply for an extension or remove yourself from North America and
apply for another I-94 form recording your movements upon reentry. If
you request an extension in a timely manner and are approved for an extension
of your visa, then you may be able to stay within the country for up to
six months; however, it is important to remember that each situation is
unique and your particular circumstances will determine the length of
extension and eligibility. Any questions you may have regarding your particular
extension needs should be discussed with a Cleveland immigration attorney from
Robert Brown LLC.
If you are planning on extending your stay in the United States, then it
is important that you remember there are specific rules and regulations
that you will need to follow to ensure your extension is approved. It
is imperative that you
do not request an extension of your visa within the first three months of your
visit to the country. If you do, then you may risk that the United States
Citizenship and Immigration Services will conclude that you been planning
on extending your visa before your entrance into the U.S. This is against
the law and may result in serious consequences.
