Have valid EAD/AP with I 485 pending.
Is your pending I-485 AOS application based on a marriage to a USC or employment-based?
Who is the principal I-485 applicant if "employment-based"?
Yes, you may legally remain in the country while your I-485 and continue working on your valid EAD, which I hope you applied for concurrently with the I-485 and AP.
