I am marrying my Fiancé next year but am wondering if I will lose my current work permit when we apply for the Green Card?

Asked over 1 year ago - Atlanta, GA

I am a L-1 visa holder and have my work permit thru my job. If we apply for a Green Card - will I lose that permit and have to wait up to 90 days for the I-765 ?

    Answered . The alternative, of course, is to get married, but not apply for adjustment of status thus keeping the L1 visa and not waiting 90 days for the EAD. If you prefer it this way. No one is forcing you to seek adjustment of status.
