EB Visa Benefits
EB types of visas allow you to apply for permanent residence in the United States even if you’re already living in a US territory. This is possible by filing an I-485 form and applying for an “adjustment of status”.
If you’re married and/or have children under the age of 21, they too are eligible to apply for a green card as derivative applicants.
Special Considerations For L-1 Visas
The initial period of time that the L-1 visa allows you to stay in the US ranges from 1 to 3 years, depending on the reason you were transferred to the United States. It is possible to apply for an extension of stay, but keep in mind that the maximum period of time this visa allows you to reside in the country is 7 years.
Your unmarried children under the age of 21 and spouse can accompany you during your stay in the United States through the L-2 nonimmigrant classification permit.

“I few years ago, I was devastated cause my H1B transfer was denied. According to USCIS, I was overqualified to work in such a tiny company and the company where I was working at the time was closing. I contacted Alice Antonovsky. After our meeting, she advised me to issue an EB-1. Since I was overqualified, I may be a person of extraordinary ability. She immediately started working on my EB-1 and a few months later filed my adjustment of status. Amazingly, my visa was approved. I’m glad i put my trust on Alice.”
