I have my i94/visa expired and my employer has applied for L1 A/i94 extension. I am planing to apply for GC even before knowing the result of L1 A Extension. Can I do that? Also, i140 asks for i94 details. how does it affect my gc application and process?
Can you provide me more details on whether this scenario will lead to questions/audit etc?Thank you all for your clarifications. The extension was timely applied and my stay is still legal, but instead of filing L1 A Extension L1 B was filed before my i94 expiry. Then an RFE came for L1B extension and this error was found. An L1 A extension was filed with addendum after expiry keeping the RFE on hold so that the legality is still maintained. As far as my stay is concerned I am still legal and waiting for my L1 A extension to be approved. 1) Can I apply for GC now so that I don't loose valuable time? 2) What are the options that I have considering the above situation? Thanks for your time.
Did you TIMELY file for extension? If so, and it is approved, there should not be a problem with applying for a green card

Agree with Neil, it really is dependent on whether your L1 extension was timely filed, ie before your I-94 card expired.

It depends on whether the extension was timely filed.
