Extend I-94 of dependent (L2 visa) as per I 94 expiry of L1 visa holder.

Asked about 1 year ago - Cincinnati, OH

My visa status is L1B visa. My visa expiry date is Sep 26 2013. My I94 expiry date is Nov 16 2013. My spouse is on L2 visa Spouse’s visa expiry date is Sep 26 2013. Spouse’s I94 expiry date is Sep 26 2013.
As per my understanding, L1B visa extension can be applied maximum of 6 months before I94 expiry. In my case extension can be applied only after May 16 2013. As my spouse i94 expires on Sep 26 2013 (same as visa expiry date).
Is there way to get spouse I-94 extended

Thank you for reading the question. Your response will be appreciated.

    Answered . YOu may apply for an extension for your spouse. She may be extended for th the amount of time your status is authorized (she must have a valid passport). Or you can wait to you submit your extension and extend her at that time or she can travel outside the uS and have a new date grated when she returns.
