L1 to B1 change of status, when B1 is valid

Jan 29th 2016
Hi, I am on L1B visa, and I have also a valid B1 visa.
1) If I resign, will my status be switched automatically from L1 to B1, or do I have to fill form I-539 for status change?
2) My wife doesn't have a valid B1. Does her and mine COS procedure differ?

L1 visa stamping without degree certificates

Dec 22nd 2015

My company is going to sponsor L1A or L1B visa for me.

I am in India and my company in the US is sponsoring L1 visa for me. Do my employer need to submit my personal documents to USCIS?

After the petition is approved, what documents do I need to take to the consulate office for visa stamping? Do I need copies or originals of my degree certificates? What if I don't have a degree? What if my degree is from an autonomous institute which is not UGC approved?

What are the chances of my L1-A visa being approved

Dec 16th 2015
We run a family business in India and would like to start a branch in the US. I would like to apply for this L1-A visa so I could travel to the States and open the new office.

I don't really have a particular designation since My family owns the business. I guess I could be the C.E.O or in any senior position.

I started working for the company right after high school and so I don't have a college degree.

And I'm just 23 years old.

What are the chances of Visa approval considering my age...

L1 employment termination while on AoS as a dependent?

Dec 9th 2015

I'm on L1B visa and my wife on L2 with EAD. Her employer sponsored the green card. She is the primary beneficiary of I-140 and I came as a dependent on I-485. My question is: assuming that we have already filed I-140 and I-485s and received the tracking number, can I leave my employer (I'm on L1) without affecting our adjustment of status process? What the employer can/should do when L1 employee leaves? I'm not going to accept new employments. Thanks in advance for your help.

L1b visa stamped but travel delayed by a few months

Nov 9th 2015
I have got a L1b visa issued in Nov 2015 and valid till September 2018. My concern is that my travel plans have been delayed and it will take another 3 to 4 months before i travel. Can this be a cause of concern that I would not travel for 3 to 4 months or more after I got the visa stamped. Can this come up as a question I might have to answer, let's say at the port of entry.

Just to give some background, i had a prior B1/B2 visa on which i traveled to US and which was later revoked under...
