So you are really looking for a Free Nanny (hope your MIL never read this forum :-) ). Not a good reason .

1) MIL goes to India and comes back in 2 weeks and then receives a 6month visa. Possible? (Yes/No)
Very unlikely with the reason you cited.

If your wife is sick , yes. But you will need to provide Doctor's note and have a hard time explaining how your wife is sick but still going to office.
If you are in an area with lots of Indians (like Boston, Edison etc) , you might find a decent Indian Nanny at a cheaper price.

Default Visit

Visit visa is for tourism purpose. Live few days/weeks with kids, relatives, see places etc...
If she tell the IO at the airport regarding your wife's sickness or baby sitting problem, they will defenitely give 2-3 weeks of I-94. Don't say babysitter in the USA is not good, and need somebody to cook etc..
They usually say don't abuse the visit visa. They may blacklist people, if they see a pattern coming and going like this several times.
No objection to come and go several times, they object the duration of stay in USA for a given PERIOD.
If she come back soon, defenitely get a curious look by the IO.
All depends on your luck, if they are in good mood, she will get 6 months, if not, 2-3 weeks... 3 months. If she come back after 2 months, 90% chance to get a 6 month I-94.

So can anyone the following for me:
1) MIL goes to India and comes back in 2 weeks and then receives a 6month visa. Possible? (Yes/No)
2) We file for an extension of her tourist visa, with a cause that my wife is really sick now while managing her office and nursing the baby and needs some time to recover. hence we need another 6months extension. Feasible? (Yes/No)
Most of the Indians (mainly south indians like us do that.

In Immigration there is no guarantee here. You need to understand that first.
You can try your luck thats it.

BTW Where do you live?? If you are in East or West Coast (They see lots of these cases) it might be some problem if she is coming back after leaving US in 2-3 weeks. (As Immigration officers see some people returning back in 2-3 weeks or sometimes in 2 months like that).

If I were you my safe bet, Apply for extension.

Just a suggestion I'm not saying you to follow this. Take some attorney advise if possible. All the best.

When filing for an extension, please avoid "baby sitting/taking care of the baby" etc at all costs. Your MIL's visa extension will NOT be given as USCIS considers those functions as a part of nanny visa.


Good luck!
