So sorry to hear this OP. I think its going to be F2. I would recommend you consult a good lawyer to look for the best options. Do you work for any big4 firm?

You have 60 days from the last day on h-1b, start looking for a job. Ideal situation going forward is get an offer letter with in a month, your new employer law firm will need 3-4 weeks. So look at the timing and apply for f2 if h-1b change of employer can’t be filed before the 60 day timeline. Good luck.

Sorry to hear, OP. Which company?

You have a 60 day grace period to be rehired or transfer your visa to a new employer. In the meantime, you still have the option to file a change of status to an F2.

I'd retain an immigration attorney in your area to better situate yourself and make sure you get the timing right on the I-539.

I'd job hunt (easier said than done) as much as possible and around day 45ish I'd get the COS ready to file.

Thanks for the info. Do i need a lawyer or can I apply for the F2 status myself?

Get an immigration lawyer and alleviate alot of the headache/anxiety.

Hi Fam, I have a L1A visa interview scheduled end of January but with PP10052 extended till Mar 31, should I get an alternate interview date after Mar 31?

Or can I attend the interview, hopefully get my visa and enter US after PP10052 expiry?

I can wait till Apr 1 or after to enter the US but don’t want to lose my interview date as will be hard to get another one for quite a while as embassies are backlogged. What do you suggest? TIA

Is it crazy to consider a move in-house at the moment, given the market? Heading into my 4th year and now that I’ve received an interview request, I’m semi-panicking, thinking it may be safer to tough it out in big law for a little longer instead. FWIW, the opportunity is in-house at a well-funded startup and a decent sized legal team. If the state of the market wasn’t a consideration, there would be no question for me, but here we are…
