Visa Category changed from L1 B to L1 Individual
Hello sir,
I am currently in US on L1 Visa without my family. Below were the expiry dates

Blanket L1B Visa expired - 31st May 2020. My company applied for my extension and it is approved.
The new I797 says that my visa is L1B and but my attorney says its L1 Individual now since it is extended in US.

My dependents were issued Blanket L2 initially for the same period as mine (expired on 05/31/2020). They are in India now.

Now I want wanted to extend my family visa and I was checking if they qualify for drop box option.
The US visa document website says spouses of L1B are eligible for drop box.

But as per my attorney, my family should not be eligible for dropbox since the visa category is changed now from L1 blanket to L1 Individual and family will not be applicable for Blanket L2 now as earlier

I have filled the DS 160 and have taken the drop box appointment considering my family visa type will still be L2 (Blanket).

Would my family still be eligible for dropbox appointment..?
Or If I change the details in CGI Federal portal will my fee receipt still be applicable since I have paid for my spouse and 2 kids.?
