Apology if am in the wrong room

I just have a question regarding some of the people i know who's needing much of an info regarding their stat.

They are bf and gf working here in a working visa they got they're permit in an agency in florida, few months before the due date of their visas they renew it and moved to california for a different opportunity. Recently, they got a reply to their application that its denied and they have 180 days to leave the country, is there something they could to do to stay?

What was the reason for denial?

What visa were they using? H1b?

My Advice is usually based on "Worst Case Scenario" and what is written in the rules/laws/instructions. That is the way I roll... -Protect your Status - file before your I-94 expires.

WARNING: Phrases in this post may sound meaner than they were intended to be. Read the Adjudicator's Field Manual from USCIS

Yes, I think thats what they have. I just spoke with him earlier today and he said that the agency who got them the permits and jobs before got shut down because of IRS related issues. That's why now there permits weren't renewed. Is there a way they could stay? Not overstaying though. An adjustment of some sort. THanks..

Unfortunately I don't think they have any other options here in US. If they were asked to leave and they were given a grace period to leave the country-they should respect that. In general-To do an H-1b extension you need a new company that agrees to sponsor you and also the company needs to qualify as a sponsor. In these situations it's recommended to go back to your home country, search for another company and re-apply for a new H-1B from there. Staying here and ignoring the USCIS instructions and re-applying for a change of status could trigger another denial.
