I-94 date extension for L2 VISA.

Chicago, IL |


I am working on L1 VISA. Please find my details below
(VISA expiry date -- 12 MAR 2014) (I-94 till -- 15 SEP 2015)

My Wife’s L2 VISA Details
(VISA expiry date -- 12 MAR 2014) (I-94 till -- 12 MAR 2014)

1. Can i get my wife's I-94 extended to reflect my I-94 date without filing a L1 extension?
2. If my wife apply for EAD, will she get EAD expiry date as 12 MAR 2014 or 15 SEP 2015 (equivalent to L1's I-94).

Your answers will be very helpful.
