Visitor visa with i94 ending in a month and waiting for i159. what would happen if they overstay?

Recommended Posts

My parents visited the USA on a B2 visa and their i94 is going to end in a month. I applied i-159 (extension of stay) 20 days back at Texas Service Center, the current estimation time for processing is shown as 6-8 months. I read in various forums that people can stay until the i-159 is pending but what to get a clear picture of what would be consequences at the various results of the decision.
What would happen if
(a) The decision is pending, they overstay for 2-3 months and leave the USA?
(b) They overstay and received a denial for the i-159.?

Also, what would happen to their B2 visa for the above two scenarios?

I know this could be a common question asked here, Sorry, if it looks repeated. Thank in Advance

they will find out....a denial will become especially bad,.....why is it they 'have to' stay longer than 6 months....(I can guess.....child care, not some silly excuse about sight seeing)

As UICIS says to be truth with them, I mentioned the real reason which is child care.

Can you tell what will happen to their visa in these two cases?

It's not a good idea to stay beyond 6 months. It will jeopardize future entry and visa.

child care is not allowed by B2 visitors....period...NO exceptions...why? because child care is considered work...and no B2 visa holders are allowed to work....under any circumstances...
