Hi Guys, I have a question regarding EAD. My wife is a LPR and she filled my I-485(along with I-756) this August while I-130 was pending. I am in F-1 status and attending college as a full time student. So if I get my EAD approved,do I still have to continue maintaining my F-1 status until I get a decision on I-485? Or can I work and not worry about the non-immigrant status? Any suggestions will be highly appreciated.

it would be better to stay in status. There would be no place to fall back to if the petetion is denied.
