One of my friend is working for employer A with L1B visa. His visa and I94 is expiring in Jan 2014. He will be filing last extension for 3 Months. His 5 yrs of tenure will finish in April 2014 and also his employer stated GC process now
What options are available to continue work in US ?
is it possible If his I-140 is approved by Apr 2014 and if his company files H1B (L1 to H1 COS) shell he continue after April 2014
Options depend on facts. One of your friends, the one that asks this question should schedule a consultation with an immigraiton attorney. L1B does not lead to a green card. The fact that PERM is filed makes no difference in terms of staying in this country, which is not possible on L1B status beyond the tenure. The employer of your friend, yes, that one, should have hired an immigration attorney long ago. This way, your friend, would not have eded in the predicament he or she is now.
