L2 travel to abroad when L1 under extension and EAD status

Asked about 1 year ago - Charlotte, NC

My spouse(L1-B) and I(L2) have visas that are expired, L1 extension was applied and file number received, L2 extension was not filed as I have I-94 valid until 2014. If I(L2) travel abroad when L1 extension is still under process, will I be able to travel back to USA?

I have filed extension for my EAD(expired on same date as Visa). Does this application hold good if I travel abroad for more than 3months?
