Is he getting married to a U.S. Citizen and filing for Residency? Is he more than 50% owner of the company? How much money do you have to invest? Please excuse any delay in responding as I have to log off for about 20 minutes.

Well, for you to continue on E-2, the company has to continue to be owed 50% by people in E-2 status or that could be categorized as such. When he becomes a U.S. Lawful Permanent Resident, for you to continue, he has to sell 25% of his company to someone from your country that is in E-2 status or that could easily get E-2 status and of course the other 25% has to be owned by someone in E-2 status or that could be categorized in E-2, all from your same country. If not, then you may need to look into L-1A status if you worked for his company outside of the U.S. for one year out of the last 3 years. Here is a link:
