We filed L1A extension (Premium), L2 Extension and L2 EAD concurrently. RD is 28th August. Biometrics for dependents was done on 24th September. My wife had to travel to India for couple of months. She has L2 Visa stamped till 2021 as they stamped it for 4 years with PED (petition expiry date) same as L1 visa expiry date. She was able to travel back to USA based on my L1 approved petition and her valid visa stamp. There is no update on L2 Extension OR EAD application. I have following questions -
As she has Valid L2 stamp, can she apply for EAD based on L2 Visa stamp, i94 and Approved L1 Extension OR she need to wait for decision on L2 Extension and EAD?
What is probability of getting an RFE as she traveled out of USA? Is there a way to send USCIS new i94 and avoid RFE or it may complicate the case?
What is recommended way of speeding up L2 Extension and EAD approval? - Contacting Ombudsman? Contacting Senator? Visiting Local USCIS Office? Calling USCIS?
