H1B Extension filed after Amendment Denied

Recommended Posts

My Amendment (for current client and location) is declined on 17th April and H1B visa is expired on 30th April (for previous client and location). The H1B extension request (for current client and location as amendment cum extension category) was filed on 27th April before visa expires but after the Amendment denial. Employer is throughout same.  I am  yet to wait to for Extension Acknowledgment receipt. But our Immigration team advising me to go back as the Extension was filed after Amendment denial so my visa is out of status. However I think its not as my visa was valid till 30th April even for old location and client. I-94 was also valid till 30th April. 

1. Is my stay after 30th April in US valid?

2. Was my extension filed in out of status?

3. Can above scenarios and circumstances lead to Extension denial ?

4. Should I wait for Extension Acknowledge receipt before leave?

I am sorry this are my personal opinions. You said your I94 is valid till April 30. After that if you donot have any H1B approved or in processing state you must leave the country. Even your if your application is applied after your H1B is denied I guess you are out of status. I feel leaving will be good instead of acquring illegal stay...
