Once a petition for a green card is filed, the applicant can stay here legally until a decision is made. Because the process takes longer than a few months and she is supposed to leave in August, that date is essentially waived and she can stay here - awaiting a response.

There are many other issue that can come up however. I recommend speaking to an attorney before you start the process.

My office provides free initial consultations.
