    Answered . Yes, you are authorized to work so long as your L-2 is valid and your EAD has not expired. It is important to note that, as mentioned by other attorneys who have responded, that your status and EAD are 100% dependent on your husband's L-1 status.

    Answered . If you travel outside the U.S. and come back, you need a new visa. However, there is an automatic revalidation program through CBP where if you travel to Mexico or Canada for less than 30 days, you can be re-admitted at the border so long as you are not a citizen of a “terrorist-sponsoring” organization (and some other limitations), don’t have a visa application pending or previously denied and have an unexpired I-94 card.
