Judith, JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about
I am currently on L1B visa which ends in July 2017 (it will be 5 years since I came to US, I will still have about 10 months to recapture the time that I spend outside US). I am engaged to J1 visa holder (2 years rule does not apply) - my fiancée is going back to home country in June. I am planning to get married in August 2016. I understand that after the marriage she can apply for L2 visa based on my petition. Since my visa will be valid only till July 2017 is there anything that I should be concerned about? I mean is there higher probability of being denied L2 because of the fresh marriage and applying short time after returning from US on J1. Is there higher risk of L2 denial because there will be only 10 months left on my L1? Additionally my company filed PERM for me - which is now pending, how it can influence the L2 visa issuance for my future wife? … read more
