Should i apply for EAD now or Wait till Primary Visa Holder's Visa is extended?

Asked over 1 year ago - Minneapolis, MN

L1 visa expiry date - July 2013
L2 visa expiry date - July 2013
L1 I94 expiry date - May 2016
L2 I94 expiry date - Feb 2016
I am not sure if I apply for EAD now , its validity would be tied to my husband's visa expiry date or the I94 expiry date? Please advise.

    He/she has access to the paperwork, we don't.
