Extension of Status
For various reasons, someone might arrive in the United States with temporary status and need to request an extension of their permission to remain here. Types of statuses that can be extended vary, but include some common visa types like tourist/visitor visas, student visas, and professional visas. Although extension of status might seem like a straightforward request, processing times with USCIS and limitations on certain categories can make the process much more complicated and stressful than expected. An experienced immigration attorney can help you navigate an extension request with confidence.
