The transferring employee may be accompanied or followed by his or her spouse and unmarried children who are under 21 years of age. Such family members may seek admission in L-2 nonimmigrant classification and, if approved, generally will be granted the same period of stay as the employee. If these family members are already in the United States and seeking change of status to or extension of stay in L-2 classification, they may apply collectively, with a fee, on Form I-539. Spouses of L-1 workers may apply for work authorization by filing Form I-765 with a fee. If approved, there is no specific restriction as to where the L-2 spouse may work.
