Customer Question
I have a friend...

I have a friend visiting me here in Newport Beach from Honduras We had a doctors appointment for her last week, and discovered she has very uncontrolled diabetes and needs medication and proper care. Her Visa will expire after March 15 or 16. She is due to fly back tomorrow night, but she will have to leave without receiving the medical care she needs. Is it possible to get an extension on her Visa, and is a month possible. How do I go about it?

Lawyer's Assistant: What is your official status? Do you have any pending applications or petitions with USCIS?

No

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

No

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

I don't think so.

So did she enter the US on a visitor visa, B1/B2?

Customer reply replied 3 months ago
She is here on a visitor visa, B1/B2 She arrived on January 14 and was planning to leave March 15 at 1:00AM
Immigration Lawyer: Expert James, Lawyer replied 3 months ago

OK, I know you said her visa expires, but once she is in the US, her visa is not important. What is important is her I-94.

Do you know when her I-94 expires? If she does not know this information or was not given an I-94, then she needs to go here to get it: https://i94.cbp.dhs.gov/I94/#/home. Go there and let me know when that expires. Then I can better assist you.

I will check about the I-94. Her visa is good til July.
Immigration Lawyer: Expert James, Lawyer replied 3 months ago

OK, no problem. Please let me know when you have that information.

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.
