Default More Time To Sell My Stuff

Folks:


My extended H1B is scheduled to expire in a few weeks. Unfortunately, I
still have lots of my stuff to sell - computer equipment especially.
Should I ask the INS for some more time (probably a few months) to sell my
things before making a gracefully departure ?
If so, how can this be done ?


Thanks,
John.

I believe you have 2 weeks past the end date of your H1B visa to leave the
country... and then, you would get a ban of 1 year only if you would
overstay for more than 3 months I believe ... or is it 6 months... In any
case, you have some time pass the end date of your visa...

Contacting a lawyer would help if you still unsure on what to do... And
then, ebay is here to sell quickly computer stuffs...

Yes. You should certainly keep your record squeaky clean in the current
immigration environment. Don't plan to stay in the U.S. beyond the end of
your I-94, and don't stay more than a few days after going off the payroll,
if there is time left on the I-94.

File an I-539 asking for change from H-1B to B-2, and ask for perhaps 2
months of B-2 status. Write a letter explaining why. Wrapping up your
affairs before returning home is a valid reason for B-2 status. Keep a full
file copy, proof of receipt by USCIS, and the I-797 receipt notice for the
I-539 in your records indefinitely.
