If you are an L1 visa, I’m guessing you are applying for GC in EB1 category. So as soon as you get it, ask your Ps to help you move over. I’m sure if you network and keep in touch, you’ll be able to pull it off

As soon as your I-140 has been approved (way ahead of the GC interview) you should be able to apply for portability. Get the application in now!

Fellow 🐠, recently laid off while on H1B. Married my partner who is a US Citizen. As I understand it, I have a 60 day grace period from date of termination to apply for new jobs and begin visa transfer through employer. However, going to begin AoS for marriage based GC. Do I still have to worry about the 60 day grace period? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

L1 question: if you max out L1B, can you work abroad for one year (same company) and then apply for a new L1 to come back? Or is this a once in a lifetime visa? Asking for someone I know in this situation that is getting conflicting responses from her legal team.

Hi! I am on L1 visa and applied for i-131/765/485 early in the year as a dependent. Can I stay in the U.S. lawfully if I quit my job and lose L1 status before the approval of EAD/GC given I have a pending change of status application? I will soon talk to an immigration lawyer, just wondering if anyone has heard a similar case before.

Old acquaintance has asked me for a letter to USICS to confirm that I found her a helpful and engaging mentor many years ago; she has applied for an O-1 visa to the US and says her lawyer has advised her to collect letters from various people to reject embassy’s claim that she falsified the truth on her application. I’m a bit unclear on the visa process and needs, and also a bit wary of someone who got in touch after 10 years, and who did not reciprocate earlier. Is this how it’s done now ?

Got an intracompany transfer offer for US and Australia - where should I head? Longterm goal: live in the US and work in tech (esp. Google). US offer: L1B visa, not transferable to other companies. Greencard uncertain. TC n/a but probably 🥜 Australia: work visa transferable, Sydney or Melbourne. Work in AU, switch to Google -> relocate to US. TC probably 🥜 too
