Passport extended stay beyond visa date?

Hello everyone...

i'm caught in some difficult situation

My B1/B2 Visa expires on 1st june but in I94 i got permit for 6 months- till august. Is it ok if i leave USA on 3rd june (due to some reason i plan to stay till 3rd)..? will that affect me in future in anyway like during green card application..? Are they really concerned about this..?

Or do you guys suggest me to leave by 1st june..?

Need some honest response and i would appreciate it..

There is no problem because the visa is only used to allow you enter at the border/airport/checkpoint.

The customs officer is the one that decides for how long you can stay, so if he /she allowed you to stay until august then I dont think you have a problem at all.

Remember that in order to get out of the US they dont check your visa, only your I94 and your passport, so dont sweat it.
