We filed a case with USCIS where the H-4 dependents of the H-1 visa holder were out of status since 2000. They believed that they were in legal status as long as the H-1 visa holder maintained status in the US. We filed a request for an extension of their H-4 status accompanied by a brief in support of the application. USCIS granted the extension of stay and issued approval notices with the I-94's attached.
H-4 status approved
