H4 Visa Expired

Recommended Posts

Hi Team , 

My H1B visa and my wife's and son's H4 Visa's got expired on Dec 31st , 2019 and we have applied for extension by Oct 2019 . 

In between , on Nov 19th 2019 , biometrics were taken for my wife and son and have the receipt for the same . 

My H1B process took a long time and finally was approved by July 29th 2020  . 

But when i checked my wife's and Son's visa status , its still not approved and is in the below status . 

Wife's extension status : "Case Was Updated To Show Fingerprints Were Taken"

Son's extension status : "Case Was Received" . 


Our 240 days period is going to end on August 25 . So my questions are 

>> Can my wife and son stay beyond 240 days after visa expiry (Which was dec 31st 2019) even if the status of extension is not updated to approved ? If they cant stay , how i can check why this delay is happening ?  (Note : My H1B is now in approved status) 

>> Why my sons and wifes status are showing different ?
