Hi All,

I have a valid I94 till 2014 but my L1B has already expired in Mar' this year. The issue is - I came on my Company Blanket Petition and they said that they can not apply my L1B extension because:
a) The I94 is valid till 2014
b) The L1B Blanket petition of my company is put on hold by the US embassy for an indefinite time, so they can not apply any extension for me.

So, Am I legally allowed to stay in US and work till 2014 or should I leave US ?
Also, How does it will impact in my future US VISA stampings. Will I be blacklisted for future stampings ?

You are allow to remain in the US as long as your I-94 remains valid.

But for the L1 Company Blanket petition the company HR was mentioning that they instead will apply for a new L1 Individual petition, when I will have to come back to India.

That sounds good. Still, it is a good idea to get your own lawyer, don't rely on the HR .. they aren't thinking 100% about you.

Your I-94 controls. Visas are only used to enter the US. If you leave the US , you need a new visa
