H1B Extension yet to be approved

nan is an unknown quantity at this point


My H1B (6 years) expired on 15th Sept 2001. My extension was filed on 13th July 2001. The INS asked for further information in early Nov. It was sent and when I contacted the INS (Nebraska centre), they said that they have received the info and it would take them another 120 days to process the extension.

Meanwhile I filed my 1-485 in November 2001. Will the delay in the H1B extension have any impact on the processing of the 1-485 particularly the EAD and Advance Parole?

I am automatically in the 240 day extension (H1 B) period. If the extension is not approved by May 2002 ( when the 240 day period ends), will I have to leave the US? If the EAD and AP comes through in the meanwhile, can I stay on based on the EAD and AP without the extension approval?

Any help will be appreciated.
