At the time of H-4 application for COS (I-539) I have valid L1A status. However, my L-1A would end in Mid March 2017 (I'm on my 2nd extension , 7th year, so no more extension on L1).
What happens, if-
1. I want to resign my job, say by end of Dec. 2016? since My H-4 would not be in premium processing so consider 3-6 month for getting H-4 COS approval. So questions is can I resign before I get an approval
2. If USCIS is still adjudicating (making the decision) on my COS by mid-March can I stay legally inside US? Let me be clear on this issue, say My L1 will end on March10th 2017 and I do not have USCIS approval for H4 Until say March 31st, 2017, will this stay from March 11th Thru March 31 consider as legally eligible to stay (based on unfinalized H-4 petition)
