H1B 6 years expiring in June mid, Daughter born in US doesn't have US passport

#1
I came to US on H1B & my wife on H4 during the year 2014. My 6 years of stay completes by June mid 2020. My daughter was born in January this year, I applied for her passport in March 15th. There has been no updates to the application. Couple of times I called the US passport service, they told me their passport centers are closed & not sure when they would re-open because of the COVID-19.

I am not sure what to do here. I cannot legally stay post June mid as I complete 6 years in US & no way of extension. But cannot leave by 4 months daughter here is US as well. Could you please guide me what should be next course of action.

Also my PERM has been filed by my new employer on April 1st 2020. There has been no traction on that case.

Both of you can apply for Change of Status to B2 status if you want to stay longer.

Normally, it's possible to apply for expedited service for the passport, or make an appointment at a Passport Agency to apply in person if you need it very soon. I don't know how things are now during the pandemic.

But what country are you guys going to? I presume that it is the country of your nationality, and your daughter has that nationality too, and she would use that country's passport to enter, and she doesn't need a US passport.

[ Dharm] All US passport services are stopped due to COVID-19. They told me I cannot do anything until the centers open again.

[ Dharm] We are Indian citizens & India does not have dual citizenship. Currently i just have her birth certificate.
