Need your help desperately as My case is very rare…
Am in L1A visa that is valid till Sep 2014 but I was given i94 until Oct 2013 based on old Passport validity date when I entered in 2012 but now I got new passport and asked my employer on how to extend it, options given by employer are.
Try visiting local Deferred Petition center asking them to correct --> went to extend i94 as correct and that Officer said it can not be corrected as its was correct at that time (as per old passport) and no mistakes as such to correct and ASKED me to file i129 thru USCIS
Leave US and re entry (may be Canada // Mexico)
Since option 1 is not working and filling i129 is like a risky option as it can lead to rejection nowadays with any L1 filling (my case it should not be as i have visa until Sep 2014 but still I was advised by employer to avoid filling).
Having said this if I use option 2 to leave US and reentry to get a new i94, will it work fine ?
Kindly advise and appreciate your help.
