Hi, I've been laid off whilst in the US on an L1B visa. It has been 30 days since this occurred, and my I-94 & visa stamp are still valid for a further 5 months. 1. From what I gather I am currently not accruing unlawful presence, but I am in unlawful status (status violation). Is this a correct assessment? What are the consequences of being in unlawful status? 2. Would now be a suitable time to leave the US by land for a few days, then re-enter the US by land, returning on VWP? How likely is it I will be granted entry? 3. Can I leave by air and return on a B2 visa, in order to later file a COS to a H1B (pending sponsorship from a university)? Thanks in advance for your responses.
