Yes, she should have received an I-94 card. The card, among other purposes, indicates that a person entered the USA with inspection. She may have received hte equivalent of an I-94 by a stamp in her passport.


If you are a US citizen, and she has a visa and an entry stamp on her passport, she should be okay.

There is a good chance her petition will be denied without an i94. It also depends of she has an entry stamp or any other evidence of admission. You need to consult with a lawyer before the interview.
