    Answered . As long as your husband is working in valid L2 status which will continue during the pendancy of his employer petitioned case, his employer can petition for his green card. This is a very complicated question and I suggest you contact competent immigration counsel to understand the process, risks and timeframe of such a case. Good luck!

    Your employer needs to retain an experienced immigration lawyer, whether myself or one of my colleagues, to review all the facts, advise them, and handle the case.
