My mother-in-law came to US on B2 visa, her I 94 expires on May 2, 2015. I want to extend her stay because my wife is pregnant and baby is due in June and she needs her mother with her. Please advise if it is easy to get an extension?Is it ok for her to stay waiting for a decision even if the I-94 expires? Can it affect her future visits?
No problem file I-539 with supporting evidence of your wife pregnancy.

Your mother-in-law will need to file FORM I-539 prior to expiration of the FORM I -94 with an explanation for the need to remain in the U.S. for an additional period of time.
I agree with my colleagues. File I-539 with supporting evidence. It is best to consult an immigration attorney to review your request for extension of stay.
