    Answered . If your spouse is here on an L-1A, you are eligible to change status to L-2 but my strong recommendation is to contact a lawyer for immigration planning since there may be factors that could affect this advice - such as what your long-term immigration goals would be and how to best achieve those (extending your own L-1A or changing to L-2). It also depends on your husband's situation.

    Answered . You have to proofread your question. It is very hard to follow with numbered visas and Junette for month. You need to seek change of status to L2 is the 1 of your husband is L1 or H4 is his 1 is H1B. Hire a lawyer and save yourself a lot of hassle.
