Concurrently filed for F2A category on 9/13/2013. Received package acceptance e-notification on 9/19/2013. The acceptance I797 will be in mail within 7-10 business days.
Thank you for your help.
You'll be OK. You'll be "pending adjustment of status", which, according to USCIS is "no status", but you will not be accruing any "unlawful presence" and will be "in a period of stay authorized by the AG". A lot of mumbo jumbo to mean you'll be OK and will be able to obtain and renew your employment authorization card for as long as your I-485 AOS is pending (and of course, for as long as you keep your LPR spouse happy..)
