Extensions and Change of Status in New Jersey
Legal Guidance from a New Jersey Visa Lawyer
temporary visas carry a set time period that allow you to legally be in the United States.
Different time periods apply to all the different types of visas available.
When a foreign national arrives in the U.S. with their approved visa,
they are given a form I-94 which the USCIS inspector stamps with the date
that lets the foreign national know the when they must leave the U.S.
There are extensions available; however, they must be requested at least
45 days prior to the expiration date on your visa.
If you fail to obtain an extension and do not leave the country by the
date on your visa, you may have penalties which result, barring you from
re-entry for 3 or 10 years. Proving that you are willing to obey U.S.
immigration laws by correctly applying for an extension is important if
you want to travel to the United States as an immigrant or nonimmigrant
in the future. If you break immigration laws, you may also become subject
to removal (deportation).
