My H1B amendment had curtailed my original H1B extension date( which was July 2018) to July 2016. However due to some confusion the discrepancy was not realized. As soon my employer and myself found it my employer filed extension with 'Nunc Pro Tunc' in Feb, 2017 . The application is in RFE status now. I want to know if I am still accruing 'illegal stay' or the clock has stopped for now? If by any chance my NPT extension is denied then will the duration of day of filling of extension with NPT till denial would be added to my illegal stay duration?
