I-539 extension stay to Green card i-485?

Recommended Posts


I am a US citizen and currently going through divorce proceedings in US..My mother has visitor visa valid for next 10 years but due to my current situation, i filed for her i-539 extension of stay for couple of months. Her authorized stay in US was over on june 4th... I haven’t recieved any response from USCIS on her extension. 

My two questions: 

1. Will there be any problem during her re entry in US if she leaves in September and comes back to US in 6 months? 

2.  Can i apply for her Green card petition while her extension of stay (i-539) is still pending and she is currently overstayed ? Will there be any chances of rejection?


i am trying to see which one will be the best option for her? 


Thanks in advance!

Thanks for the response! Does she need to withdraw I-539 extension of stay application prior to filling for green card? 

since she has been here for about 8 months already on visitor visa,would there be any chances of rejection because she stayed longer than authorized stay?
