    Hi

    H1b is expiring on Feb 02,2016 (this was extended based on pending labor AC-21). my I140 is approved in September 2015, in November my employer applied H1B Extension in Regular Processing, so far no decision made on my H1 extension, if USCIS don't make any decision before feb02,2016, am i allowed to stay until the decision made or 240 days?

    Thanks
    Sri

    You receive an automatic extension of work authorization for 240 days beyond your expiration date and indefinite permission to remain while it is pending.
