EAD validity after leaving USA?

Asked over 1 year ago - Louisville, KY

Hello Sir/Madam , My husband is on dependent Visa L2 on my L1 B and working on EAD. Our visa is getting expired in 2 May , 2013 but I-94 is good for next 3 years. Due to some emergency , he needs to go back to our native country and will re-enter USA before 2 May,13 . While re-enter he might get lesser I 94. After coming back , will EAD remain valid or do we need to re- apply/renew?
