Lawyer's Assistant: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?

When my company filed for extension they have only filed for me and did not submit the I539

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

Hi Jen
Immigration Lawyer: Jen Marie, Esq., Immigration Attorney replied 11 months ago

No unfortunately not. Your wife and son will need their I-539 filed in order to remain with you in the US. If they do not file it then they are out of status as soon as your current status expires.
