    HI Mr Ron Gotcher,

    I am on L2 and my spouse on L1 from 2009.
    I have a EAD valid till March 2012.
    In 2010 september we travelled to India and came back with new L1 petition and L2 for the same employer of my spouse.
    Is my old EAD still valid?

    Thanks and Regards,
    rsla

    As long as you remain in lawful L2 status, your EAD remains valid until it expires or is explicitly revoked by the CIS.

    My wife has an L2-EAD. We've recently applied for AOS.

    If I were to, after 6 months, change jobs (AC21), would my wife's EAD continue to be valid through it's validity date, since she is still entitled to an EAD as an AOS Applicant, or would she need a new one because here basis of eligibility has changed?

    She can and should continue to use the same EAD. When it is close to expiring (90 to 120 days out), apply for an extension and cite the new basis for eligibility.
