H1 to L2 Conversion Question

Recommended Posts

I am on H1 with 6 years maxout on 6/15/2020. My employer filed I140 petition on 3/20/2020 in normal processing(the intention was to be in premium processing but it was suspended).
My wife has a L1 which is valid until Apr2021.
what are my options now?
1.Can i file for L2 and stay in the US with receipt notice? How long/until when should i be able to work on H1 in this case?
2.If USICS allows premium processing’s on I140, it may take up 2 months for me to get back on H1.What happens if i get my H1 in Aug 2020 and my L2 is still not approved yet? what happens to the stay between 6/15/2020 to Aug 2020?

Apply for L2 and EAD and you can work on EAD once approved. Why do you want to work on H1 with all the restrictions? 

Once I140 is approved and you can switch to H1 anytime if there is any issue with L2 EAD.
