I have H1B extension approved for 3 years and i filed H4 Standalone extension in AUG-2018 and waiting for the receipt notice. But the dependent I94 is expiring by 10-OCT. Can they still stay in US after I94 expires and with out receipt notice?
Was your check cashed? If so, look at the copy your bank can provide ... it should have a receipt number.
Go to www.uscis.gov and look up the receipt. Print that page and they will be fine.
