A friend came to L.A. on M-1 visa last year March. She wanted to take more courses from the school so she requested a extension on her visa. The school then gave her the I-539 form. But before she could hand in the form. She was told she doesn't have to fill up the I-539 because her I-94 expires this year. However, her I-20 and visa has expired last year July. She is leaving real soon. She is leaving a few days before her I-94 expires. Her course ended like 5 months ago. She has been living here cos she thought she was allow to stay until her I-94 expires but someone just told her recently that she can't. She is really worried now. What will happen to her at the airport? Will anything happen to her?
She won't be given a hard time when she leaves ... but, she may have difficulty coming back to the US.
There is something 'wrong' with your facts. How did she get an I-94 that was valid beyond her other documents?
