L1B maxing out, I-140 is not filed yet, from RoW, Re-enter US after 1 year or Canada PR?
Hi community, my L1B expires in 1.5 years. My company has started the GC process, but it's in very early stage (waiting for PWD from DOL). In case if S386 is passed and signed into law, I won't be able to receive my GC and would have to leave the country as we can't extend L1B beyond 5 years. I'm not sure whether my company will apply for a fresh L1 after 1 year.
Does it make sense to re-enter U.S after 1 year (to reset L1/H1 clock) for a CS master, get OPT and then H1, and then eventually GC? Or doest it make sense to move to Canada right away? I'd love to live in the US for the rest of my life (have two US born kids too), but STEM->OPT->H1>GC path is very unreliable (couple of my friends didn't win the H1 lottery), but Canada PR is a sure thing on the other hand. What's your view on this? YOE 6+, TC 176K
