I on L1 visa which is expiring on Dec 1. My wife is on L2 and currently pregnant and due on Dec 19. My company has filed for an extension in August for me and thinks that there will be no decision until early next year. If my visa extension gets denied before December 1, does it mean that we cannot deliver our child in US? What is the norms for losing health coverage - do I lose it immediately?

I don't think they allow travel after 35 weeks of pregnancy

Congrats to you and your wife. Isn't premium processing an option to get an expedited response? Even if you had to pay for it out of pocket, I'd say it's worth the hassle of knowing sooner. That way, you will know by end of August and at least have time to make plans before December. If your wife did have to travel back to your home country, doing so sooner is the better option.

Congratulations to you and your wife. If your visa extension is denied on Dec1, your wife may not be able to travel outside the US with so close to due date. Health coverage is usually till the end of the month, so should be fine with the assumption of Dec1 denial and hence lay-off.

If delayed applying for cobra health insurance is an option. Congrats OP and hope it is a smooth process. Enjoy the phase, don’t stress it.

I just started my job a month ago. It was my 2nd choice role at this company.

I basically skipped onboarding and jumped right into working, boss skipped a huge working session I "led" but had no clue how to lead and I was put on the spot. Applying to a dream job but if I don't get it might keep browsing. Is leaving worth the consequences?
