If you are in US with that expired I94 then you are illegally present from Oct 2014 and if you were working that is unauthorized employment. You need to exit and enter with a valid H1B visa and I797 to get new I94. Before exiting US talk to a good attorney immediately.

Does my employer needs to file another extension ?? And get the new 797??

Need to go to home country or near by country would do??

Your I797 validity has no value when your I94 has expired. You are looking at serious trouble. Talk to your employer's attorney today and act accordingly.

Employers attorney told that I just need to go to my home country and can get my visa done with the current i797 which is good till nov2016.

Is that true??

With an I94 that is expired in Oct 2014? Might be. Talk to an independent attorney.

Hi Ketan,

 

I am also in similar boat as you are in. My PP and I 94 expired in Nov'2014. I have contacted local CBP offices and Airport CBP offices and none of them worked out. I am planning to go to cross Mexico border next week end.

 

Let me know if you have made any decisions on your case. 

 

Thank you

Kris

Before you attempt to cross border talk to your employer's attorney.

I am planning to go to India next week for my stomping again because if your I-94 is expired then you may have valid visa stamp on your old passport but your I-94 overrides your visa in the system. So it may not work if you plan to go to maxico. I talked to murthy attorney and I got a response that what I am doing is the correct way to do it if you have stayed less than 180 days after your I-94 expired..so I got my visa appoinent setup and planning to fly next week.

I had the same response from my employer attorney but for second opinion I choose Murthy and I got the same response..

Let me know what decided and how that works in your case.. I will update this post with my outcome of the visa interview..

That's very good, and so it worked out in your case.

In my case I appeared for interview and he just looked at my both passport and i 797 and then just cancelled my visa on old passport and give it back to me and kept my new passport with him and told me that I will have answeres in a few days. So typically when they keep the passport with them then they normally gives the visa , correct ???

So now just waiting for answers to come back..

Let me know what you think on this??

Thanks

Ketan

Looks a straight forward case. Just wait to get your passport with stamped visa.

Hi Ketan,

 

I went to Mexico border yesterday and i have corrected by I-94 as per my I-797 validity.

 

Good luck with your case.

 

Thank you

Hey Kris,

So did you drove to Mexico and re-entered via roadway or you traveled by flight ?. My lawyer says it needs to be an entry via airport. Please reply.

 

Thanks ,

Hello,

My I 94 is expiring in May 2015 and my H1B is valid till Nov 2015. When I last entered USA my passport was expiring in May 2015 and which was the reason I got I 94 until May. I have renewed my passport but CBP says I can't extend my I 94 by personally going to CBP office since my passport was expiring, it wasn't any error on their part.

After going through forums I see that the best option is to go outside USA and re-enter. My question here is :

 

1. Can I go to Canada and enter back to USA through land and get a new I 94 ?

2. I know going to mexico I can get new I 94 but even in that is it possible if I drive and re-enter by land ?

3. How many days after my I 94 is expired I can stay in USA ?

 

 

Thanks.

Hi ,

 

My I94 expires in December 2015 and my H1B visa is valid till June 2017. Is it good enough to exit the country anytime before my I94 expires and then re-enter ? I now have a new passport. Thank you!
