I am on L1B status and want to change to another company within US. Please let me know possible options.

I did that. Just apply for a job that is willing to sponsor you for H1B. Then while you're still employed in your current L1B employer, your new potential employer can help you try H1B lottery. If you get it, then you're transferred to H1B and hired by the new firm. If you don't get it, then sometimes the new employer has the option to post you to EU or Canada for a year and try H1B lottery the year after. Luckily I got it during the first time.


You wont be able to do it on L1. Find an employer who is willing to sponsor H1b and file for next lottery. If you want to change the job now , might want to look into day1 cpt. Though it has it’s risks. Another option is applying for O1 visa as there is no lottery

I just told my husband that if he didn’t clean out the garage this summer I was going to hire someone to do it and all of his (stuff) would be thrown out. This is after two years of me asking him to do it. Why are people like this? Just clean your stuff up and be tidy! I cannot deal.
