No updates for me.. The inquiry case date has been updated to June 3rd, 2017 in USCIS website today. I don't understand what exactly is happening.

I know !! i m just waiting for it to cross my received date and then probably raise a service request and call them for updates.. !! these people are getting pathetic.. No responses lately and moreover there is no transparency in system. you just need to wait that some day may b they will pick your case....

Tried filing the inquiry form, says its still within the reasonable time frame. It is clearly not as we're already on June 3 processing date. I don't think that table is credible anymore, its going up by one day everyday but I don't think they are working that fast (if at all)

Try calling them ! its so frustrating.. Why to even maintain a table on site which does not even count.
These people are getting on nerves seriously..:(

NewsFlash! F, J, and M Nonimmigrants to be Subject to New Unlawful Presence Rules
11 May 2018
The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) released a policy memorandum today that will dramatically expand the manners in which those in F, J, and M status may begin accruing unlawful presence (ULP).

Nonimmigrants entering in F, J, or M status usually are admitted for “duration of status,” typically marked as “D/S” in the I-94. Those admitted for D/S generally only start accruing ULP upon a formal finding by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) of a status violation or, after being ordered excluded, deported, or removed by an immigration judge or the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA).

Under the new memo, which is scheduled to go into effect on August 9, 2018, anyone in F, J, or M status granted D/S will begin accruing ULP under ANY of the following circumstances:

The day after the individual no longer pursues the course of study or the authorized activity, or the day after engaging in an unauthorized activity
The day after completing the course of study or program, including any authorized practical training plus any authorized grace period
The day after being ordered excluded, deported, or removed
For a better understanding of the differences between being out of status and accruing unlawful presence, please see the MurthyDotCom NewsBrief, “Differences Between: Lawful Status, Period of Authorized Stay, & Unlawful Presence (03.Jun.2013).

Today Murthy law firm released the flash news as below, if I-94 expired with I-539 pending still we can stay legally in USA, or do we have to get a B2 visa to bridge the status gap?

My daughter is applying for change of status from h4 to f1. She will be 21 years old next year by March 2019. The School Advisor told us the I 539 processing takes longer. Told us to go back home, we prefer applying it here since there's a possibility of denial bec she has no strong family ties back home, she lives here almost half of her life. My question is, what happen if the I 539 still pending and H4 visa is already expired, age over 21 years old?
