H1 extension filed in Jan 2017 and is still pending whereas USCIS is now processing Apr applications

Recommended Posts


My H1b extension was filed under normal processing with USCIS in Jan 2017 and is still pending. Case status shows - My case was received on Jan 11, 2017.

If I look into the USCIS current processing times for I-129 H1 extension for California Service center then as of May end they were looking at applications submitted as of Apr 2nd. 

Question is:  

1. If they are looking at Apr cases now then how come my application is still pending. 

2. What if I will reach my 240 days limit which is going to be Oct 7th. Can I still stay in US?

Appreciate any help on this.

This is a tricky situation. Consult a lawyer. Unfortunately, you cannot do premium as that seems to have been the only option.
