My visa is H4 and I got my EAD last month, but my family's I-140 and I-485 on pending, if I use my EAD , unfortunately I-140 we can not pass, is that means I must leave U.S.A. in ten days?

Generally, adjustment of status applicants must obtain Advance Parole (Form I -131, Application for
Travel Document) from USCIS prior to leaving the United States or else their applications are
deemed abandoned. H-1 and L-1 nonimmigrants (and their H-4 or L-2 dependents) are now exempt
from this requirement. Previously, they were required to present a receipt for their adjustment
application at the time of readmission to the United States following foreign travel. This final rule
eliminates the unnecessary burden of presenting this receipt since the application information in the
receipt is in USCIS databases available to immigration inspectors and adjudicators.
