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?
