As an exception, these are the last set of questions I am allowed to answer on this thread. Kindly remember to give me a positive rating before leaving this site today. I do not get a salary here, so your positive rating is the only way I am rewarded for doing my job. If that does not happen, it is as if I never worked, which I am sure you agree would not be an ideal outcome. So please do not forget to give me 3 or more stars, or any smiling faces, in order to help me get credit for doing my job. Thank you!
QUESTION 19: So now if I need to give a try to extend my I-94 dates, what are tge procedures?
ANSWER: If the I-94 dates are wrong, then to get a new, correct I-94, you need to go to the secondary inspection site at the port of entry. Take with you the supporting evidence showing how much time you've been int he US on L1, how many days you've been abroad while still having a valid L1. I would also take an explanation of the days counted toward each, to show the number of days left to be recouped. Again, you will not be issued an L1 I-94 for more than 2 years from the date of entry, as I've explained already.
If the I-94 is determined to have been issued correctly, your employer needs to file an entire L1 petition for extension to the USCIS about 6 months prior to expiration of the current status. For filing locations, go here: http://www.uscis.gov/i-129-addresses
QUESTION 20: And whom or which department do I need to contact?
ANSWER: Secondary inspection site at the port of entry.
QUESTION 21: My wife currently has a L2 dependent visa. Her company is trying to apply for a L1B visa, so if her L1b visa gets approved will her L2 dependent visa get cancelled? Or will it still be existing?
ANSWER: The visa is not canceled. But if she asks for a change of status, she gets a new I-94 for L1. If she asks for consular processing, she will not be able to get into L1 status without leaving the US, getting a valid L1 visa stamp, and then returning.
QUESTION 22: Suppose if her L1b visa gets rejected, will it have any impact on her L2 dependent visa and are there any chances of her L2 getting cancelled when they reject her L1b visa?
QUESTION 23: Also, if she travels now to US on L2 visa, and if she gets her petition approved for L1b blanket when in visa, can she work without getting it stamped? Or is a stamping must?
ANSWER: If she is in the US when it is approved, and she is not issued an I-94, then she has to apply for a change of status from L2 to L1.
QUESTION 24: For the 3rd qsn, if she gets an L1b individual petition approved, can she work on that or a stamping is must?
ANSWER: Same as above. If she is in the US when it is approved, and she is not issued an I-94, then she has to apply for a change of status from L2 to L1.
I know these issues can be confusing. If you want to discuss this or anything else by phone, I can send you an offer for that. There will be an additional fee, if you want to do that. Please let me know and I will send you the offer.
I hope I have answered your questions. Kindly rate my customer service with a positive rating. I do not get a salary here and this is the only way I am compensated for my efforts. So please do not forget to do that before you log off. You can do that by giving me 3 or more stars, or any of the smiling faces. And you can continue to ask questions even after you have given a rating. Again, giving me a positive rating is the ONLY way I get credit for helping you.
REMINDER: You are not rating the state of the law or the outcome of your situation, which I cannot control. You are rating my customer service. Believe me that I always want to give you good news. But if the outcome is not what you wanted, blame the government and the law, not me. I am only a messenger.
A BONUS is appreciated, if you feel I've earned it.
