I am in L1-A. My employer has started GC process for me under EB1c. My family is in my country. Though I can get it clarified thru my corporate attorney, I thought of taking addition opinion here.
"Here" is not good for additional opinions. "Here" is good for general information. As you have correctly admitted, you are seeking second opinion. That one should be sought through a private consultation with an immigration attorney of your choice. It might not be free but will get you your answer.
Two options. Bring your family here on L-2 status before your I-485 is approved and then they can adjust here with you Or concurrently file an I-824 with your I-485 for them to follow-to-join you. In that case their cases won't be started until your green card is approved. I would recommend option 1.
