If you are a spouse or unmarried child (under the age of 21) of an employment-based nonimmigrant, you may extend your authorized period of stay when your spouse or parent’s employer petitions to extend their stay. We recommend that you apply to extend your authorized period of stay at least 45 days before your authorized period of stay expires.
