240 Days Rule for Dependents


Recommended Posts

Hi Team

I am working in IT field. I have applied for H1B extension for me and H4 extension for  my son together in the month of April 2016.

I got H1B approval in the month of June itself till Oct -2018. But still my sons dependent visa is in Progress for past 6 months.

People are telling , we can stay  only for 240 days with the receipt number. after 240 days we may need to leave out of US .

IS this rule is applicable for H4 dependents also? Since I have valid visa can my son stay with the receipt number?

Not sure about  the Processing time of his request.
