You have been out of status since you ceased your employment. It does not appear the new H-1B grace period applies to you given your employment was terminated before the regulation went into effect. You do not appear to have triggered enough unlawful presence to trigger a bar to admission, but consular officials and CBP have broad discretion. The sooner you depart the better.

Regardless of your situation, U.S. immigration law can be confusing. Are you seeking to come to the United States for pleasure, business or to attend school? Do you want to stay here just temporarily, for a longer period of time or live here permanently? Are you a permanent resident or seeking citizenship? If you want to come to the United States, immigration lawyers can help determine your eligibility for various types of visas and guide you through the application process. If you've already arrived in the United States, an immigration attorney can determine whether you're eligible for permanent residency and if you can bring family members into the country to live with you. Immigration law firms can also work with individuals who have entered the country illegally, overstayed their visas or violated the conditions of their visas and are facing removal or deportation proceedings.
