Immigration Issues/Filing L2 when H1 is pending

Question
Hi , I'm on L1 currently in US. My wife has filed for H1 and waiting for the same. In this H1 pending status, can she file for L2 also ? Pls advise

Answer
Gops,
She can but issues would rise based on the timing and sequence of the approvals. I would suggest that when you file for the L-2 you disclose the H filing. Since the H is effective from Oct onwards you will have time to get this right.

Sincerely,
