I've stayed for about 2.6 years on my L1B visa in US. My employer is applying for my l1b extension. If the extension gets approved and then 6 months my employer files for a L1B to L1A conversion what are the total number of years I can stay in the US- do the max number of years I can stay in US be a total of 7 years (including my l1b stay and upcoming l1a stay) or will the number of years get reset and i can stay for 7 more years (in addition to my existing l1b stay)?
Will the answer be different if a fresh L1A application is made rather than a conversion from L1B to L1A?
Your question is unclear. If you are asking about the maximum amount of time allowed in each category, 5 years on L-1B, 7 years on L-1A. Time in L-1A counts against time in L-1B and vice versa.
Your employer needs to retain an experienced immigration lawyer to review all the facts, advise them, and handle the case. Your employer can find one through http://www.ailalawyer.com.
