Default Shall I Renew H-4 for my wife

I have a couple of questions on renewing my H-1

1) I got my first H-1 on 10/01/2006 ( I-29 date). When is the latest I should renew my H-1B visa
2) I was a July filer and my wife is already using EAD (business). Does it make sense to renew her H-4 as well
3) I was going to apply for AP for my wife? Will I loose my H-1 if I apply AP for myself too

I truely appreciate your response on this matter

1) I got my first H-1 on 10/01/2006 ( I-29 date). When is the latest I should renew my H-1B visa

Earliest date to apply for a renewal - 04/01/2009
Latest date to apply for a renewal - 09/30/2009


2) I was a July filer and my wife is already using EAD (business). Does it make sense to renew her H-4 as well

No it does not unless she wants to fall back on her H4 status, in my case, the lawyers only extended my H1B, my wife's on AOS pending status.

3) I was going to apply for AP for my wife? Will I loose my H-1 if I apply AP for myself too

No, your AP has no connection to your H1B.

nousername is infamous around these parts

1) I got my first H-1 on 10/01/2006 ( I-29 date). When is the latest I should renew my H-1B visa
Answer: At least three months before your H1 expires.

2) I was a July filer and my wife is already using EAD (business). Does it make sense to renew her H-4 as well
Answer: No.. She is already doing business, which she can not if she goes back on H4. If she is making money then no point going for H4.

3) I was going to apply for AP for my wife? Will I loose my H-1 if I apply AP for myself too
Answer: As the previous member said, both are separate issue, so don't worry and just apply for her AP.

My two cent: You should apply for your EAD and AP as well...
