Default Tourist Visa Help

My mother recently got a tourist visa for 10 years. I know that when she enters USA she will get I-94 which will be valid for 6 months, and she has to go back before the I-94 expires. My question is:

1) Can she go back to India for say 2 months and come back to US to stay for another 6 months?
Ex: she comes on 1st Jan 2011 , goes back 31st June 2011 , then stay for couple of months in India and Again Come Back on 1st Sep and stay for more 6 months ?

According to my understanding tourist can stay only 6 months in USA in a calendar year, provided they don’t apply for extension, is it true?


2) What if she comes on 1st Jan 2011 stays for 6 months, applies for 6 months extension gets it.
Goes back in month of Dec. stays for 2 months and again comes on March 1st 2012, will she face any problem at port of entry? Due to her extension she took on her last visit?

Please help me understand pros and corns? What is the best way to use 10 years tourist visa to stay in USA legally to Maximum period.

Tourist visa is for tourism purpose only. You want advice to misuse the visa ?. 10 year multiple entry visa can be used number of times. But she stays more (like 6 month max) for each visit, after 2 such visit, within a small gap say 2-6 months, there is a chancce to blacklist her and may be allow for 1-2 months I-94, or deny her entry. They are smart to see the intension of people. They look for the pattern of visit.
