How "Nunc Pro Tunc" can save late immigration filings

Although a filing for an extension of stay (EOS) generally must be submitted before the expiration of an individual's previously authorized period of stay, an immigration officer at USCIS does have complete discretion to approve a late extension filing under federal regulations, specifically under 8 C.F.R. § 214.1 if the reasons for the delay warrant the discretion.
