I-94 expired on passport but valid on I-797

Recommended Posts

My I-94 on passport is expired. My last entry in US was in Nov 2010 and the Visa officer at the port of entry gave me I-94 only till July 2011 as my passport was gonna expire. Then I got my new passport but I never went to extend my I-94. I thought the I-94 on my I-797 is valid till 2013 so I am fine.

However my lawyer tells me I am out of status for last 8 months. Any idea what should I be doning now? Am I really in trouble?

Thanks for your responses.

please consult a lawyer.

your lawyer is correct, dates on I-94 are important and dictates your legal status of stay. you can try and correct your situation by doing a nunc pro tunc request. waiting further does not help your case, consult an immigration lawyer.

Thanks for the replies. I took my chance and flew out of the country and when I can back, I got new I-94 at the port of entry and my status is all good now.

Please note that it was a risky option but I used the logic that it was not easy for CBP to know which I94 is the last issued one when they collect it at the airport while leaving the country. So when you come back with a valid I-797, it's highly unlikely that they will dig that deep.
