Since both K1 and L1 are dual intent visas, I was wondering if its possible for to have both applications open at the same time? My girlfriend is currently talking to her work about intra company transfer, but we are unsure if she'll be able to receive it. The company has told her that she the position is basically hers but she isn't a manager and I am not sure if she truly has specialized knowledge so we're not sure if the gov't will agree with her company's assessment.

Since the K1 takes some time, we were trying to figure out if we should apply for that now in case her L1 visa is denied and defer the extra time it would take to wait for confirmation. Would this hinder her chances of receiving L1 if the K1 application is already on file?
