Hello, 

My parents came to visit me in Florida in March 2020 and are stuck here since. We applied for COS / Extension in June and received a receipt of notice. 

However now  on 5th sept 2020 they have passed their 6 months in the USA although they have applied for an extension. Now they are planning to travel to Canada to meet my sister.. However we are not sure if they can travel before they have received their approval for extension. If they leave the USA without an approval, will their stay here be counted as unlawful presence?

The extension of status should continue to be processed despite the departure and they are in a period of authorized stay due to the timely-filed extension request, so no ULP. However, the re-entry will be considered a new entry request, and therefore, your parents are at the mercy of the CBP officer who will see their prior entry and will most likely ask about the extension request.

Due to the complicated nature of your question, it is best if you schedule a call with one of our H1B attorneys.
