Have you talked to the company lawyer and NOT a NON-ATTORNEY in HR?
Did they get you an L-1B? If so, why? It isn't as good as an H-1B.See question
I have been discussing with some friends the idea to open a business. In our specific case is to have a food truck. Is this possible while we are under the mentioned visas?
Don't even think about it.
My employer name changed but the terms of my employment remain unchanged. I am now planning a trip to India and will have to appear for Visa stamping with the petition that was applied with the employer name unchanged. In this case, do I need a H1...
Let's start with you enlightening us with the answers that your employer's immigration lawyer gave you when you asked him/her this question ... he/she is in the best position to know the answer due to the fact that he/she has access to corporate papers and we don't.
Whatever you do, don't waste time talking to NON-ATTORNEYS in HR, or any other part of the company that says they are part of an 'immigration team'.See question

Do not look at the employment chart b ... you must use chart a: https://travel.state.gov/content/visas/en/law-and-policy/bulletin/2017/visa-bulletin-for-february-2017.html
I agree with your lawyer, you must wait until the 1st of February.See question
I am married to a US citizen living in Hong Kong. I had two children before I married my husband, US citizen. They are 13, 15 years old. I am going to process marriage visa soon. My question is when my son and daughter enters the US with green...
I agree with my colleagues, they need to be his adoptive, or biological children.
Otherwise, they will become citizens when you naturalize ... roughly 3 years after entry.
Consider having an attorney assist with the process, to save time.See question

You, of course can't file anything, the papers are the property of the employer.
But, yes, another employer can re-capture the remaining 2 years.See question
He is on h 1 visa i am on dependent visa, he is not willing to me to study.
Does he have an approved I-140? If so, then you might qualify for a work permit.
PS Why do you need his permission to study? Is it because you don't have the money for school? If so, try attending some adult education classes, they are usually free, or super-low-cost.See question
I am in need of employment authorization to balance out and there are no work opportunities on campus . I have siblings as citizens and my parents are permanent residents and am above 23. Can i get work authorization and/or immigration?
No, you can not get a work permit based on the status of your parents/siblings.
Talk to your DSO about an economic hardship work permit.See question
Hi all, I have applied for AOS in October 2016 based on the dates in chart B of the visa bulletin. I got the approval of my EAD and AP this week. My category is fb1 unmarried sons of USC. I am expecting (hoping) that my PD will be current in...
Do not look at chart B ... immigration has announced that they are only going to use chart a for adjustment cases.
It is difficult to say whether or not there will be an interview, there are many factors which trigger this. Talk to an attorney and have him/her look over your paperwork to see if there are any hidden 'red flags' that you didn't notice.
What are you looking at online? Most of the processing takes place AFTER the PD becomes current.
