Hi All,

 

My I140 was denied few years back, my employer appealed it .  So based on the appealed I140 I was getting 1 year h1b extension all these years. In Aug 2012 my appeal also got denied. I was in my 8th year of h1b when the appeal got denied.  But my i797 was valid till june 2013. So based on my attorney I stayed in USA till june 2013.

 

Now I am hearing that I should have left USA when my I140 appeal got denied in Aug 2012 , even though I had valid i797 and i94 till june 2013. ( this i797 was my 8th year) -  Is this statement true , what will be the conscious in case if it true and I stayed till june 2013.

 

please appreciate your replies , pls someone who know the answer for sure and have any real time experience , please share your comments.

 

IT WILL BE GREAT HELP IF SOME MURTHY ATTORNEY CAN PROVIDE COMMENTS ON IT. please
