State/Country relating to question: California
Thank you for allowing me to assist you. If there is a delay in my reply, I am helping others but WILL reply to you asap. Thanks for your patience.
the I-94 expired but have you applied for another visa or have an extension of the original already approved?
we tried to file for an extension (I-539) which was denied (with very starge reasons) ...
ok, so I-94 expired and no visa left?
exactly ... we are trying to find a flight home (to Italy) or hope that we can have him stay here for the holidays with a flight to Canada ,,,
i understand...when did the I-94 expire?
how often have you visited the u.s.?
how long have you stayed each visit?
how long do you wait to return in between visits?
the I-94 expired 08/28 ...Last visit was for 6 months ending in Feb/2010 - on a tourist visa which was granted to him without problems ...So between the visits were 5 1/2 months ...
ok, well it appears they feel he has visited too much and has stayed too long. in a year and a half he has been here for a year, which looks like you intend to live here. If the extension was denied he needs to wait for about a year before trying again. Each denial gets another denial and another, until they stop looking at the application and just keep denying it. the more you apply the more desperate it looks to them and that you must plan to live here because there is no desperation to go someplace if it is just a "visit." also, he has to go back to his country to get a visitor visa. if it was an employment visa then he could go to a nearby country but not for a visitor visa, that has to be issued by the u.s. Embassy in the home country. I hope this clarifies the issue for you. Please click "accept" so that I may receive credit for answering your question.
