Hi, L1 holder in CA here. My wife (L2+ EAD valid) is a nurse and got a nursing license in TX (a lot easier to convalidate everything) and is in the process of moving the license to CA but may take 3-6 months. She got a very good offer for 3 months in Texas and she is planning to go there for the 3 months there. Do you see any red flags or immigration issues?

EAD based on L-2 is NOT employer specific. Spouse can work anywhere in the USofA. May look a little weird for green card purposes if spouse is residing in a different state from you but that can be explained. That is assuming your goal is a green card for you and spouse, and also assuming spouses are not residing together at time of AOS adjudication. Doesn’t sound like it will be for you.

Marriage is not the focal point of any EB case but USCIS can/will question you about it (to a degree). Simply to make sure applicants are not helping each other out just for the green card.

Run this by your immigration attorney anyway. Follow their advice.

Cool thanks. Actually in her offer they are considering she is traveling to TX for that offer and it includes lodging paid (pre tax), we are planning to keep our apartment in CA where she is included in the lease agreement. Not even sure if that would even be considered as change of residence. I see it very similar as If for work pwc send me to TX for a project and they pay me the hotel there, my residence will still be CA, not sure if that would be the same, but yeah seems like either way could be explained and should not be an issue for 3 months.
