Recently I got promoted to Manager, Because of which my employer initiated converting my visa status from H1B to L1A.
As per my employer, My H1B visa cannot be extended (Even thought I served only one year in US with H1B visa) because of my designation.
Now my Employer submitted H1B to L1A visa conversion documents to USCIS under premium process a week back.
My I94 is going to expire within a week, on 20th May, 2013 (On which date My H1B Visa going to expiry). With H1B visa, I stayed (Worked) in United states only for 4 months.
Whether its legal to stay in United states even after my I94 expires, while I waiting for response for USCIS for my H1B to L1A visa application?
Recommend that you speak with employer's attorney who applied for change of status from H1B to L1A.
If you change of status application is approved, you will be deemed in status however, if the COS application is not, you will become out of status . Consulting employer's counsel and follow his advice.
