Q: How to get Driver's License extension when on STEM-OPT pending?

Currently on OPT-EAD (Expired in October 2018). Applied for STEM-OPT extension in September 2018. Recently moved to Madison,WI. Out-of-state driver's license expiring in December. Local DMV rejected to renew my driver's license with I-797C Notice of Action(Receipt). Need to commute daily to work. Current processing times for USCIS are around 5 months. Any advice appreciated.

A: Some of these issues are best considered before a job or internship is accepted in a less immigrant friendly state like Wisconsin. I strongly recommend an appointment with a competent and experienced immigration attorney to consider all of your options. Good luck.
