JA: Hi. How can we help?
Customer: I have a valid L1A (blanket file by IBM) in 2014. I travelled on it for 2 years and then came back to India, resigned from IBM and joined my new employer Zensar.
My question is :
- Can I renew my L1A with new employer (my Visa is still valid until Feb-2017 and is eligible for 2 renewals after that)
- Can I go for H1B
Is there any benefit of having the valid L1A after leaving the employer who filed it once I am out of the US?I am still doing a manager role and have a big team associated with me in the new employer too.
JA: What is your official status? Do you have any pending applications or petitions with USCIS?
Customer: not really I have a different question...L1A valid but resigned from employer who filed. So wanted to know if this visa will help me in any form
JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?
Customer: nope Does it even remotely see a bright chance to talk to a lawyer and find out or is it obvious case of losing it
JA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?
Customer: no other hidden conditions...I have a L1A valid till Feb-2017 but I quit that employer who filed it. Now how best can I make use of my visa or is it just a gone case I did travel for 2 years on that visa and came back 2 months ago
