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.

Asked about 1 year ago - 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.
