On my i-94 it says Indefinite for expiration date. I came as a asylee under my parents. What does this indefinite verbiage mean. Does it mean my i-94 never expires?
Correct it does not expire at all, it is indefinite.
The above is intended only as general information, and does not constitute legal advice. You must speak with an attorney to discuss your individual case.
You should be happy: simply means that the asylee/refugee status under which you were admitted into the US is "indefinite" - it never expires. You have been "admitted" into the US "indefinitely" as an asylee/refugee. The USA is your new home. Welcome to the USA! (And now do us good..)

Your FORM I-94 as issued indicates that you were granted asylum and you will be an " asylee" for an indefinite period. However, you should consider applying for the resident status after 1 year. Good luck to you.
