Can i convert my l2 EAD to l1 ?

My husband is on l1b visa working for employerA and now his l1-h1 COS is approved from employer-B which is effective from oct1st.I am on l2 EAD working for a company.I would like to continue to work.

I have few questions

  1. Can my employer file for change of status from l2 EAD to L1 now while my husband’s l1-h1COS is approved?I have worked for the same employer overseas for 1 year in last 3 years.
  2. How much time does it take to change the status?
  3. With my husband’s l1-h1 COS approval and my l2-l1 conversion in progress, can we travel outside US and re-enter on l2 EAD and my husband on l1 status before oct1st.
  1. Yes, they can. Also the job should be L-1 eligible i.e. requiring use of skills/technology/applications/knowledge which is proprietary to employer and not commonly known outside the emloyer

  2. 2-3 months

  3. Your COS will be denied, and will have to reapply for COS. As his COS is already approved, he can still return on L-1 and be on H-1 from Oct 1.
