My wife has L2 and she is outside US right now. I have applied for Adjustment of Status.

Asked over 1 year ago - Houston, TX

So my wife has L2 and she is outside US right now. I have applied for Adjustment of Status and I have not received my Advance Parole or my EAD documents yet. My question is, while I am waiting for these documents, can my wife travel on L2?

Secondly, once I receive these documents would my wife still be able to travel on L2?

    Answered . Your wife can travel to the United States while your application for adjustment of status is pending assuming you are still in valid L-1 status. Your wife would still be able to travel after you receive those documents. However, she will not be able to travel with the L-2 visa if you are not in compliance with the terms if your L-1 visa (such as not working for the employer) or once you adjusted status.

    Answered . Yes & yes. As long as the AOS is pending you still retain the underlying nonimmigrant visa status unless you change same by traveling abroad and entering on the advance parole or filing an affirmative COS.
