I'm on L1A Non Immigrant Visa . My dependent Son was given B2 Visa in the port of entry ( entry date sep 13th 2012) valid till March 12th 2013 . Now that my son vaildity has expired and my passports are with Canadian Consulate for Visitor Visa to enter the country which I planned and is in process .
1) Planning to go out of the country ( USA) and enter again once I get my passports from Canadian Consulate ( Visitor pass) to enter canada . What are the implications of my son ( Son is a minor - DOB Nov 28 2011 and Canadian by Birth) over staying for these 2-3 weeks .
2) While entering into USA from Cananda , What are the chances that My son would likely get rejected given that he has over stayed for few weeks ( Son is a minor - DOB Nov 28 2011 and Canadian by Birth)
Short Term overstay
It is always best to maintain status. If a short overstay has already happened, try to explain at the port of entry and provide any available documentation to support your explanation. There is always a chance that CBP/ICE may not allow entry to a nonimmigrant who had overstayed in the past visits, no matter who short the overstay had been.
It is not clear from your question whether your son was given a period of authorized stay until March 12, 2013, or a visa with that eligibility period. (They are not the same). You may wish to consult an immigration attorney. As others pointed out, individuals can be rejected, particularly if they have overstayed. However, it would be helpful for you to consult with an attorney to discuss how to minimize the chances of this happening..
