An L-1 visa holder’s husband or wife and unmarried children under the age of 21 years old may go with the employee to the United States. These family members can apply for L-2 visas to make sure that they can join the L-1 visa holder during their time in the United States. With it, they can work and go to school while being there.
Further, the L-2 visa is linked to the validity and duration of the L-1 visa. So, this only means that when the L-1 visa expires, the L-2 also ends its validity. With an L-2 Visa, your children have access to U.S. schools where they can attend classes from Pre-K to high school and even Universities. The L-2 Visa affords your spouse the ability to apply for any employment, provided he or she has secured a work permit.
