My husband is working for an indian company. His company has sent us here in US on L1and L2. He is on L1 and i am on L2.

Harrison, NJ |

I (his wife) got EAD and i 94 till 2014. And i am working here. But now my husband is leaving US permanently as he has been assigned next project in india. But his employer company will not terminate his L1. Because they might send him back but that is not fixed. So in this situation can i work here once he leaves US? I have valid EAD n i94.

  1. It seems like he is not in fact leaving the U.S. permanently if the employer is keeping the visa so he can return. If you are in valid L2 status, then your employment authorization is also valid.

    The above is intended only as general information, and does not constitute legal advice. You must speak with an attorney to discuss your individual case.


  2. As long as he may return and his L-1A is not being terminated then your L-2 continues and you may continue working.
