My husband filed L1b to H1b on 11th May with COS and it got approved on 28th in USCIS site. We recieved approval notice today(5th OCT) with I-94 , start Date as 1st of OCT.I filed my L2 to H4 visa(COS) independently, which is still in “initial review” with USCIS.Currently I am working on L2 EAD. I have few questions on the same.
1.When we spoke to attorney regarding quitting on L1 and L2 EAD , we are asked to quit our jobs immediately which is not realistic as we have to serve atleast 2 weeks notice period.Is there any grace period to move to H1 and H4 as we recieved the approval notice today in PDF format from our attorney, still not recieved a hard copy of the same?In some blogs I have seen, they say USCIS considers 2/3 weeks of grace period.
2.As my H4 is not approved yet, what is my status now?If someone(non-profit organization) agrees to sponsor my H1b in cap-exempt, can they do it before any decision made on my current H4 petition, or we need to wait till the decision being made?
Appreciate your help on this.
