Can I Recapture L-1A Visa Time, so I May Still Have Time to file EB-1 Application

Dr. William:

My L-1A visa will reach the 7th-year limit, and the EB-1/EB-2 visa numbers retrogressed for my country. Can I recapture 
the L-1A visa time for my one year working outside USA? so I may still have time to file EB-1 Green Card application?


Answer: 

If you are close to reaching the end of the 7th year, you should work with your employer to ask USCIS to recapture 
your time working outside the U.S. - to apply for extension of your L-1A time recapture your time abroad.

Also, your employer should immediately file I-140 application alone to fix the priority date. When the EB-1 visa number becomes available, you should quickly file I-485 along with EAD and AP applications. You should also watch closely the EB-1 visa number progression in the Visa Bulletins.
