My stem OPT extension documents was recieved 2 days late to USCIS. It is a possibility that it might get rejected. I have around 23 months left on my student F-1 visa. What are my options to stay in US? I was thinking of getting into an online course and get another OPT. How do I explore that and what are the other possibilities to stay in US? How long can I stay in US?
TIA :) I need urgent help on this one.

    Is the mailing date or delivery date is 2 days later than the deadline?

      From mailing date perspective mailing date counts for deadline not delivery date

      I think this is accurate.

      Good point. I don't know about USCIS specific, but for most govt matters, as long as outgoing mail was postmarked on or before deadline, it should be acceptable

      That’s what I also thought. OP, can you call USCIS and confirm?

    Did you not use an overnight shipment?

    You’re in trouble my friend! Contact a lawyer ASAP. Blind is not the right place for this. Did you wait till last week to file extension? Did the company you work for ask or send a reminder about this? You’re out of status then I believe

    What do you mean by “they were sent two days late”? Did your current EAD expire and you continued working? If so, most likely your extension will be denied.

    You don’t have many options. You could go back to school, but you don’t get another OPT unless you finish a higher level degree. CPT is an option, but not a good one. This isn’t legal advice and it is clear that you need legal advice. Hire a lawyer.
