    Hi ,

    I came to the USA on a L2 visa and had been on that visa for a year when I got a job and switched to H1 B . I have had my H1 B for almost a year and a half now. My question is will the 1 year time period on the L2 visa too be counted towards the H1 B 6 year limit or will it not be counted at all ?!

    Appreciate the help

    H1b Duration=(H1+H4+L1+L2)


    The time you spent on any L visa or any H visa, like H1, H4 will all be counted towards H1b visa, thus, if you spent any time on L or H1 visa will be counted and new visa will be given only for the remaining time period.
    This is my personal experience also.

    is there a time limit for H4

    If someone has worked in US for 6 years on H1, then after these years can he get an adjustment of status to H4 if his spouse is on H1?

    yes, he can do change of status(not adjustment of status) to H4.

    Calculation of six-year stay

    Is the six-year period calculated from the time of entry into the country or from the date the H1B approval notice was issued?
    For instance, my H1B approval came in December 2000 but entered the country in March 2001.
