Hi All,

My i140 was denied few years back, my employer appealed it. so based on the appealed I140 I was getting 1 year 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 and i94 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 approved based on this appealed i140) - is this true information , what will be the conscious in case if it true and I stayed till june 2013

Please appreciate your proper replies, pls someone who know the answer for sure and have faced same exp , pls share your thoughts.

in this case, want to know the period from aug 2012 to june 2013 will be considered as over stay or invalid stay

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