Default L1b extension

Hello

I am working on a L1 B Blanket Visa since the past 3 years. My visa is expiring on 11/18/08 and my employer encourages me to apply for a fresh petition from India rather than apply for an extension here due to the no. of cases denied. My wife is presently employed through EAD which expires the same date.

Is there any way that she can retain her employment while we both get our VISA stamped a month before my current VISA expiry date from India ? She might not get 2 months leave without pay which is the usual processing time for a re-extension of EAD considering we both arrive in US after getting a new VISA in the first week of November 2008. Please advise.

I don't see the gain. Although a fresh L petition has better chance of approval, you still have to get a visa approved, which may get rejected.

Given your wife's situation of EAD, you are better off applying for an extension here. They will not reject an application as long it meets all the requirements.

Thanks ! I dont know if the reasons for rejection are entirely based on merits of the petition but from experience of my coworkers around here, the employer advises a fresh petition. If I wish to go for a fresh petition how soon can I travel before my VISA expiry date ? Is there any deadline stipulated ? My VISA expires on 11/18/2008. Can I travel in Sept and submit a fresh petition for approval ?

Thanks
