1. No it will not impact your 485. One can just sit idle on AOS status while 485 is pending. Think of family based GC cases or kids for example. They dont have EAD. They just have AP (if they applied for) while they wait for 485 approval.
2. Once she starts using her 485 based EAD for work, she will automatically be on AOS status working on EAD. While on break, she will be on AOS status as well.
3. You can just re enter using AP, but you no longer be on h1b.

Thank you spideey666.

So when we go out of US, she has to come with AP and not H4 stamp. also I can still be on H1 and come with Visa Stamping, correct?

yes, you can continue on h1b if you enter using that. She can be on EAD/AP.

Hi guys,
My wife's application for H4 EAD reached USCIS on December 9th. She has also attached G-1145 for notification so far no update either via email or Message. How long would the process take? Can anyone please give a estimate?
Regards,
Harsha

It's sure they will strick on this rule but big question is how, if he used reverse rulemaking then it will take sometime, other option they stop renewal and let it die itself I belive same thing they going to do with DACA. Some people saying they file case in court but it's hard to prove in court because they did in past and failed.

It's not sure which path Jeff will take

My spouse EAD got approved today in 26 days.. This was a renewal. Received by USCIS on 11/23 and approved today. That was pretty quick considering I did not apply it with the H1/H4 extensions.

You have everything pretty much.. You either need DL or passport for identity. I don't recollect sending my passport copy because prev. EAD card was sufficient for the ID proof.. Good luck

Thanks harshreddy9. Any idea within how many days to expect receipt notice once application is reached at USCIS? My application reached on 7th Dec but no receipt notice yet. We have filed G-1145 form along with the application.
