First of all Thanks to each one of you Attorneys. Appreciate your sincere help. :)
Thanks for providing me the confident one liner straight answer. Yes, I-94 controls US stay not Visa. I also tested it by applying my Wife's EAD, which she got without issues in Jul '2012.
Thanks to USCIS and to you all Wonderful Attorneys.
Just a related Important Urgent Question:
With God's grace we are expecting a baby this year and due to work it will be very difficuilt for me to take care of her health everytime., So i need my parents support.
Can I sponser my Parents' Visitor Visa with a Valid I-94 (till 2014) but an expired L1B Visa (Mar'2012). Please need your assistance as I had to take some strong decision thereafter.
No, you, nor anyone else can 'sponsor' someone's tourist visa ... they have to be self-sufficient.
I can tell you that mentioning your pregnant wife, if not done correctly, can hurt their application.
And, yes, you are correct, an expired visa stamp is not important ... as long as the I-94 is current.
But, again you can not 'sponsor' someone for a tourist visa.
Your parents have to each qualify for obtaining a B1/B2 visa on their own. They have to show "substantial ties" (connections) to the country of nationality and Intent to return after a temporary visit to the US.
Wanting to visit their daughter who just gave birth is OK, but they cannot state wanting to "babysit" the child or otherwise help to care for and raise the child. US governmental agencies do not like that, as it is considered working without authorization and competing with US workers.
