Here is my case: I entered the US on L2 and been working on EAD.
My spouse’s L1 and hence my L2 are due to expire in March 2013 and so his company are in the process of filing for L1/L2 extension.
Since I previously had an approved/ unused H1-B petition, my current employer filed for a cap exempt COS for 1-129 in Nov 2012.
At that time I had asked my employer about my L2 extension and was told to proceed with filing for extension just in case my H1-B transfer petition got rejected.
My H1-B transfer was approved 2 days ago. Now am not sure what happens to the L2 extension. I know that whatever gets approved last takes precedence.
I am planning on travelling to India sometime this yr after there is a final result on my husband’s L1 extension. If it doesnt get approved will simply go back. End of story
But if the L1/L2 extension gets approved then my H1-B is void. So how long would it take to do a COS again (if my employer doesnt kill me first) and go back to H1-B again?
Or should I ask to stop the L2 extension filing? The risk here would be that if there are visa stamping issues with my H1-B(I’ve been told this happens a lot for such cases) when I travel to India then I’m out of options for the next couple of months.
Any additional facts that I should be considering? Thoughts and suggestions appreciated.
