1. Now i am in L2 visa and got an offer from a IT company as a full time employee. and my husband holds a L1 and working with a IT company, now my husband is thinning to apply for a H1B in 6months, so in this case do you think i can request my employer to process H1B for me ? and will it be a good idea to ask after joining to avoid the confusion to HR team ?
2. If my husband want to process his L1 to H1B how long it will take ? (he is working on L1 since one year) and also once started the process of H1B until what time he can still work on L1, the reason i am asking is applying the for H1 is just because of job security. he wanted to work on L1 as long as it is going good. and wanted to get ready with a H1B plan in case he loose his job which is on L1 Please suggest.
1. If you or he wants to apply for an H-1b the time is NOW. This is because of the H-1b quota. The numbers are going fast and in 6 months the visas COULD be gone. Confusing HR team should have nothing to do with your decision. Hire a competent attorney to make them less confused.
Please note, the H-1change of status can not occur until Oct 1. Regular processing for H-1b can be 2-4 months. If you do premium processing it will be 15 days, but you will not change status until Oct 1.

1. In six months there will be no H-1b visas left. If you and the job qualify for H-1b, your employer needs to file NOW.
2. Estimated processing times for the petition are as posted on the USCIS website. However, H-1B status can not begin before October 1.
