L2 Visa Expires - 13/Sept/2012

Current EAD expires - 13/Sept/2012

My spouse status:
L1 visa Expires - 13/Sept/2012
I-94 expires - 01/May /2013

I applied for EAD renewal but got RFE today to submit valid L1 & L2 visa extension.My husband company is not ready to extend his visa now ,since he has valid i-94.Please let me know if I can renew my EAD based on my I-94 which is valid till 01/Apr/2013.

What should i reply for RFE ? What are the documents i need to attach?Will i get my EAD approved based on my spouse or my I94?So can you tell me what will happen in my case?

    Answered . Whether you can renew your EAD depends on whether you can prove you will be in valid L-2 status. In order to prove that you will be in valid L-2 status, you must prove that your spouse will be in valid L-1 status.

    You should retain an experienced immigration lawyer, whether myself or one of my colleagues, to review all the facts, advise you, and handle the case.
