Recapture of time on L1B and Green card on L1B

Asked over 1 year ago - Wheeling, IL

My employer filed for my H1B'2014 (RP/RQ/CSC), but i haven’t heard anything yet. I’m currently on L1. My initial L1 petition was approved in March’2009, but i first came to US in Aug’2009 and been here since then. Now my current L1 petition will expire on March’14. H1B was my only hope to continue my stay in US but as i'm losing hope on H1B this year, hence i’m looking for plan B, i have few questions, - a. Can my employer file green card on L1B (individual) visa? and then they can file my H1B again next year? b. Can i recapture the time i spend outside US on L1 (basically time from March 2009 thru July 2009)? Thanks in advance!
