I am on L1A and myDependent is on L2 visa and her I94 has expiry date as L2 D/S, Which date should we metion while applying EAD

Asked almost 2 years ago - New York, NY

I am on L1 . I came couple of months back and my wife joined me last week in US on a L2 visa.We want to apply for EAD now
The question is on my wife's I94 has expiry date as L2 D/S. My expiry date on I94 is September 2015.
So for applying EAD what date should i put for my dependent i.e D/S or my expiry date?
Will mentioning D/S create any issues while applying for EAD as most of the people on L2 i know have an expiry date on their I94?
