L1-B location transfer

All of this L visa stuff is a lot more opaque to me than when I went through a K1 with my ex because I'm not really involved with it, so I apologize for another stupid question. I found out yesterday there is an outside chance that my fiance, who is here on an L1-B, may be transferred to another location within the same company. It would be basically the same job, same job description, same duties, etc., just in another location in California. I know it's the company that takes care of such things, and I don't need to be involved in any of it, but I just worry anyway that something is going to go wrong. 😕 

 

I know that the advice is going to be, what are you waiting for, why don't you just marry and file for AOS and then you don't need to worry about the visa aspects of it, but I have some financial reasons for delaying. The plan is to marry next year, but if the transfer happens, it will likely be in around six months, and any wedding would likely be after then. Personally, I don't want him to be transferred at all because I like it up here, and the location he'd be moving to isn't somewhere I particularly want to move to. Maybe I want the answer to be, no, with an L1 you're stuck in the same location but I have a sneaking suspicion it's not!

Bump to mention that apparently in this scenario, if an amended petition is filed, this can happen. The personal stuff is another matter to deal with separately. 🙄

An L is company specific not location dependent.

 

Obviously someone on it has more limited bargaining power.

Yeah, unfortunately we're stuck with him having to go whether he wants to or not, unless he wants to quit, I guess, in which case he's just going back to the UK without a job. I floated the idea of getting married ASAP (which is not something I want to do) and filing AOS so he could potentially just come back up here and quit his job once it's approved, but that was a non-starter for us both. So it's either I quit my job and move with him, or we do a commuter relationship within California again. Neither is ideal but we'll figure it out eventually.
