Immigration Issues/I-539 rules


I have filed I-539 for my mother who is currently staying with me in US for last 5 months. We have already filed one month back for her I-94 extension for another 6 months. Her I-94 is going to expire  on 18th May'08 (visa is valid for 10 years).

1) Can she continue staying in US even her case status is showing as pending on 18th May & until she hears response from UCICS?
2) What is the approx time does it take for it hear from them for I-539? I have already checked the processing time & it is not very clear.
3) When does she have to leave if her I-94 extension is denied?

Vineet Parolia,
1) YES she can.
2) I do not know, you need to check the processing time report. It is pretty self explanatory. It gives the date that they are currently processing.
3) Immediately.
