L1B to H4 to L1A


Recommended Posts

Hi there,

I need guidance on my current visa issue. I am on L1B from my company, IN January I decided to move as depended on H4 and then later apply for EAD once Change of status take place. I continued to work on L1B and waited for my H4. In mean while my company also filed COS from L1B to L1A, this went in to RFE. I am yet to receive the RFE details. 1 day back I came to know my H4 is approved. Now I have below questions.

1) what is my current status H4 or L1B? COS from L1b to H4 got approved 1 day back but my L1B is only stamped visa on my passport which will expire in july

2) Should I continue to work on L1B ? whether COS to H4 will have any effect on L1B

3) what if my L1A gets approved in next 5 days as it was filed in premium


Please respond quickly based on this I have to take important decision and leave job. 

Thanks in advance.

Your status is H4. The last approval matters.

You have to stop working until the EAD is approved.

Depending on how long you've been in the US already, a change back to L1 may not be possible. Discuss this with a good immigration lawyer.
