  1. Generally, if you resign from your L-1B employment, you are no longer in a lawful non-immigrant status. You will start incurring unlawful presence which may have adverse consequences. Also, a change of status request cannot be approved if you are not maintaining your current non-immigrant status. Please hire a qualified immigration lawyer.


  2. 1) No. I-94 states period of authorized stay. Once terminated, you status ends.
    2) No.
    3 & 4) Once status expires, you should ideally leave or talk to a competent immigration attorney to consider if a nunc pro tunc employer petition can be filed in your behalf.
