An extension of status, also known as an extension of stay, allows an individual to lawfully stay in the U.S. longer than intended. To do so, you have to file a Form I-539.
To make sure you have the proper evidence and documents to submit an extension request, schedule a consultation with our experienced immigration lawyer.
Once a person enters the United States with a non-immigration visa, that person must follow the guidelines for the type of visa he or she may have; however, sometimes situations change which would otherwise force someone to violate their visa status. Often, this happens due to unforeseen circumstances such as a health crisis or natural disasters. Sometimes a violation of a non-immigrant visa may prohibit the person from seeking an employment visa or “green card” in the future. It is important to work with an attorney who knows how to protect your future.
To ensure you are lawfully staying in the United States, an immigration attorney can help you file for a change of status. Call Vestal Immigration Law today.
