Hello, my name is Judith. Thank you for this opportunity to answer your questions. I have 34 years experience as a licensed immigration attorney.
You have been out of status since the date your I-94 expired.
However you would not begin to acquire unlawful presence until the date of denial.
Even though you are accruing unlawful presence and USCIS does not toll (stop) that from running, the denial letter will either tell you that you need to depart immediately or some give 30 days.
So you need to begin your preparations for departure while waiting for your hard copy of the denial.
I see this is the first time you are using JA and I am eager to make this a positive experience for you. Please ask follow-up questions if my answer is not clear.
Of course, I am sure you understand your positive rating is very important to me as we are not on salary and that is how we receive compensation, you choosing a smiley face, but more importantly, I want you to come back to the site for all your answers from over a 100 categories of experts!
In the future, you may begin your questions with “FOR JUDITH” and I will be your personal immigration expert.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
