I seriously doubt that your H-1B approval would come after October 1, 2013, but if it does, then yes, you would need to leave to Mexico and come back on the L-1A. There really is no grace period. You should leave immediately to have no issues to come back.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
