My husband is on L-1 and I am working in L2S status. Our I-94s are valid until next year, but his employer is laying him off next week. Do I have to stop working immediately? Or is there any type of grace period?


After being terminated, the principal L-1 worker is normally eligible for a 60-day grace period, or until the I-94 expires, whichever date is sooner. This period is considered valid status. If the L-1 spouse is in valid status and the L2S souse is otherwise maintaining status, she generally should be able to continue working during that grace period. (30.Jun.2022)
