Alert: Check your I-94 Documentation!Posted on Tuesday, July 11, 2017
Serious errors are appearing in our clients' I-94 admission records, and we urge all our clients to ensure theirs are accurate. In one case, an individual was admitted in the wrong classification; in another, the I-94 "admit until" date was that of the visa, not the petition. These errors have serious effects, as they effectively terminate legal status months or years early. The individual may then unknowingly begin accruing unlawful presence, perhaps ultimately triggering a three- or ten-year bar.
We advise all our clients who have traveled recently or who are planning travel to go on line and check their I-94s (Direct link) to be sure the information on the form is accurate. If you have questions about what the form should say or what to do if you find an error, please contact us.
