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 Brown Immigration Law.
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.
