Should i submit Form i-765 for spouse who is on L1 visa

Recommended Posts

Hi, I am seeking suggestions and guidance in the following scenario.

I am on H1B visa and my i140 got approved(EB1 category) last week. My spouse is on L1 Visa. 

My employer is asking me to submit i485, G-325A, i765 for my spouse as well. I am particularly concerned about form i765 for my spouse who is right now on L1 visa. My questions:

a) Should I submit Form i765 for my spouse?

b) Will approval on i765 cause an issue with his existing L1 status?

c) Does my spouse needs to be on H4 before i can submit form i765 for him?

d) What could we expect if we apply only form i485 and G-325A for my spouse AND do not apply form i765 for my spouse.

 

Thanks for your time reading my queries, please suggest and share your thoughts.

A. yes

B. NO

C. NO

d. Apply for his EAD. The moment you get the GC his L2 is toast. If he gets the GC a little later and not at the same time, the EAD will let him keep work continuity.

Applying for an EAD doesn't change her L1.

She would only lose the L1 if she starts using the EAD.
