      Perhaps looking at a B1/B2 visitor visa, depending on what country she is from. Go to USCIS.GOV. They also have a 1800 number that you could talk to someone. Sometimes though it can be hard to get a rep on the phone, but it's worth a try.

        B1/B2 is limited to a max of 6month stay. Technically she can leave the country within 6 months and reenter and get the extra 6months, but the granted maximum length of the stay is up to the CBP officer at POE.

          You can be granted sixth months and file an extension to ask for another six months -- no need to leave (unless it is later denied).

            I'm under the impression extension is harder to justify and granted in most cases. I'm inclined to say its a dime a dozen with leaving and re-entering, but doubt the reality is that simple.
