L2 Visa to F1 Visa question
Hello, I am currently 19 years old under an L2 Visa. I have filed for I485 by October of this year, however my visa expires April of 2021 and my I94 on April of 2022. I will be going to college and have a few questions regarding this:

1) If my parents have to abandon an I485 petition due to moving to another country, can I request a change of status to F1 Visa? Would I be likely to have it accepted?
2) If an I140 or I485 was denied, could I change status from L2 Visa to F1 Visa since I will already have completed almost 2 years of college?
3) What would happen if my I485 was denied after my I94 Expiry in April of 2022 and I was in college? Is there a way to remain for 1 more month, simply to complete 2 years of college, and then go to my country and request to change to an F1 Visa simply to at least finish college?
