Hi, I quit my job while in H1b status. Due to some family issues I just had to quit. My last day was June 19th. On June 17th I submitted a change of status application to change to B2 status (form I-539). Received a Receipt notice on June 19th. In the I-539 form I asked my B2 status to start on June 19th and end on November 20th (i.e. 5 months). It has been 4 months since I submitted the my for I-539 form but it is still pending. I was trying to find a new job over the last several months and I am in the final stage of the interview process with a couple of companies. However, I don't think I will be able to get new H1b paperwork submitted before November 20th (the last day of my requested B2 status). So, my question is: - Can I modify my pending I-539 form to extend my requested B2 status through December 20th (i.e. 6 months) instead of November 20th? - If my I-539 remains in pending status on November 20th (i.e. the last day of my requested B2 status) will the fact that I have a pending petition allow me to stay in the country beyond Nov 20th? - Is there anything I can do to get a decision on my I-539 asap? - Do most I-539 forms get approved or not? What are the chances that my change of status will be denied? Thank you!
