Immigration Law Questions? Ask an Immigration Lawyer.
Hello my name is ***** ***** I am delighted to answer your questions today. I have 35 years experience as an immigration lawyer.
What visa status do you enter with when you come in from off shore?
As long as you are paid in the US there should be no issue with the extension.
USCIS will know of your arrival and departure dates so it may be wise to explain the nature of your off-shore work requirement but that you are on US payroll, supervised and controlled by US manager and paid per the LCA and petition requirements.
Otherwise they may issue an RFE. Be on the offensive,not defensive.
