If your J visa is valid for employment you can use it. Once you apply for the I-485, together with the I-765 and you will get a work permit in 90 days. Is that your question?

Thanks for your reply. Really it is not my question exactly. My wife has valid visa until 2014 and also has work permission until that time so there is no any problem regards her j-2 visa. I want to know that if she wants to apply for I-485 can she still continue her work with her work permission obtained based on j-2 visa or she should apply for another work permission.
Well, when she applies for her I-485, usually at the same time one also apply for the work permit called the EAD. It however takes 90 days to obtain it. The J-2 can still be used to work until the EAD is issued from her I-485. Then she could switch. Under what basis is she applying for the I-485? As a derivative dependent through you?
Thanks for your reply. If I understand correct, she can continue based on EAD work permission obtained from j-2 visa. As you mentioned she is applying for I-485 as a derivative dependent. To apply for I-485, I should send my application to TSC and for wife to Chicago, Am I correct?
