Hello, my name is ***** ***** I will be the immigration attorney helping you today.

I just answered you in the other post but I am not sure if you received it. I will answer you here again.

Since you submitted your extension request BEFORE your visa expired on December 3rd, you are fine to wait here in the US while the extension is processed. You are considered to be in a "temporary legal status" while the request for extension is pending. You are not doing anything illegal and it is okay for you to stay here and wait past December 3rd. Whenever you get the decision you will have to decide to go or stay. If it is a denial of your extension then you need to leave immediately.

If you would like to have an update on your application you can look on and check with the receipt number . You can also call USCIS (immigration) at(###) ###-####5283 They may be able to help but sometimes they do not have news until you are approved or denied. You can try but if not you just have to wait.

Good luck to you and I hope this answer has helped you!
