  • L1 to H1 visa problem.


    I came to USA in june 2007 on L1 visa thru company A, it is valid till 01/2009.
    This year I filed for H1 thru another company B, and it approved and i got a new I94 along with it valid from 10/2008 to 09/2011.

    1) Can i continue on my L1 visa (Company A) till I get some project thru company B or I need to move immediately to my H1 visa?

    2) My wife joined me on July 2008, she came on L2 (dependent Visa). What is the process to change her status to H4 (if I have move to H1 immediately).

    Please let me know the solution.

    Thanks in advance.

    Illegal to continue on L1. Read 100s of posts on the forum on the same topic.

    Both you and your wife are out of status if you are not working on H1b and your wife is illegal if her COS to H4 was not filed. Read Leapfrog posts.

    I am not a lawyer and you need to consult with one to validate any info posted on the forum and discuss your case specifics. H1b Question? Read the FAQ first.
