A: Good Afternoon:

This depends on your individual circumstances and on your immigration history.

In general, the period of authorized stay in the United States on a tourist visa is 6 months, but always verify the actual stamp on your passport because it is there where you will be able to see your exact period of authorized stay.

As usual, I recommend that you speak to an attorney if you have concerns about your current situation.

Hope this helps!
