I hv L2(EAD) with different employer than my spouse(L1B ext.) employer.I hv 8.8 yrs of exp.I m requesting my employer to change my status from L2(EAD) to H1B as my spouse's co. is applying her H1B due to her GC process of L1.My employer is saying that initiating H1B while staying on L2(EAD) is not possible.I hv left 6 months on L2(EAD).Also,my previous H1B had expired in 30th Sept 2010. But I didn't leave usa as I had already filed L2 and application was in process. From the month of Aug 2011 I started working with my current employer on L2-EAD. Now I asked my employer to File H1b since I hv passed more than 365 day after previous h1b expired.I raised query ticket to my employers Immegration team but they said due to possibility of rejection they will not file conversion to L2 EAD to H1B.Please advise to understand why and what should be other option in this case or if any other alternative they can follow. Now April is passed. Still H1b quota remained.
