hi, my husband is on L1A blanket visa. when visa was issued in 2015 his passport was stamped till july 2020. but we suddenly heard in may2018 that we have to apply for extension as that stamping may have been a mistake by immigration, since visa is issued for 3 yrs and extended for 2 yrs. so my husband's company filed for an extension, premium processing in 2nd week of july and in the 3rd week we received a rfe. meanwhile we are awaiting i-485 case status adjustment (filed in september 2016, biometrics done in may2017, case trasfered in march2018 to nbc). we have also applied for ead extension  and i130 advance parole (all at the same time as L1A extension). any idea when l1a renewal/ead/ i130/ i-485 can be expected ?

I am on L1A [spent 2+ years] valid till July 2019.
My organization has filed I-140 and I-485 concurrently and I-140 is approved. 
I have also received EAD with advanced parole valid till 08/08/2019. 
My L1A expires on December 2018 though.


1. Should I renew my L1A even though my I-140 is approved and have EAD with advance parole in hand?

2. Can I travel to India with advance parole and come back without issues?

3. Is it advisable to change jobs using AC21 [similar or higher role] when I am on L1A but with the EAD in hand?

4. How long should I be on the current job after GC approval [if approved]?
