Fiancee went back to Brazil in January but I-94 says she's in the US

My fiancee left the USA for Brazil in January, but her I-94 says she's still in the USA. How do we correct it?

Long version:

I proposed to my fiancee when she came to visit the US last winter. She went back to Brazil at the end of January, and we've been preparing her K-1 Visa application since and are now just about ready to send it in.

She checked her I-94 from the Customs & Border Protection website and there is no departure listed for January 2016. She has arrivals and departures for every other visit, but the most recent entry is Arrival, December 2015. We suspect it is due to her return flight being rescheduled, but her boarding pass for that return trip even "DOCS OK" stamped across the front.

What are potential causes for this? What's the best way to fix it, and how long will it take?

Thank you!

None. It really don't matter.

As long as the date will be on there when she arrive on the K-1 visa that is what will be needed.

We have dates on ours too where it didn't show we left but it showed we entered the next time we vent for a visit.

If I were in your situation I would sent documents to the CBP showing that she actually left the US when she did. I do not think rescheduling the flight was the issue. I guess someone may have forgotten to check her out of the country. I would show passport stamps entering the other country, a certification from the airline stating she actually boarded the flight leaving the US, and a certificate of migratory movements issued by the country she entered when she left the US.

I would not rely solely on the passport stamps of entry to the country she entered because it is known that people has tried to scam the government saying the left the country but their names are not found in any flight manifesto. Immigration officers in other countries enable this fraud by providing the stamps. However, the government has access to the flight manifestos an can easily confirm her departure based on the passport stamps if you provide the information of the departing flight.

In other words, contact CBP and let them know about the record missing in her I-94.
