Default Filed EAD before 120 days

I was not aware of the 120 days... I filed my wifes EAD day 138 days before expiry (should have been more carefull!)... So what happens now? Rejection? Denial? RFE?
Also what docs should be send after efiling, if any?

rejected. Meaning they will return it with your filing fees:

02/14/2008: USCIS Clarification of Denial vs. Rejection of EAD Renewal Application Filed Earlier Than 120 Days Prior to Expiration of EAD

* We posted this message on 02/04/2008 and raised this issue. The AILA has just reported that the USCIS clarified its message that the premature filing would be "rejected" rather than "denied." What this means is that the filers will at least save the filing fees

Default EAD/AP Filed before 120 days

Inspite of telling my lawyer she did the mistake of sending my EAD and AP before 120 day period. EAD filed 121 days prior and AP filed 148 days prior. I have gotten the receipts of both but AP status says that they have requested more information/evidence. I am wondering what additional information they need. Anyone else in this situation ?

Default Re: Submitted 150+ days before expiry

I submitted my wife's ead renewal app online 150+ days before it expires (i filed in April 1st week whereas expiry is in Oct 2008). I only realized my mistake after filing.

We have received a receipt from BCIS as well as an appointment for biometrics on 5/23. I have not sent any documents by mail to support the electronic filing.

I am hoping that her app will not get rejected or worse, denied.

Default e-filed 157 days before expiry

E filed both myself and spouse application 157 days before expiry of EAD. Received Receipt numbers immediately, since i e-filed. i did send in the documentary evidence supporting the case also.
Also received FP request, which i had to re-schedule twice(once for visit abroad, second on missing app. due to late arrival of notice). Finally got FP completed on third try.
However, i received email stating that an RFE has been send for both our applications. Still awaiting for the paper document.

Does this mean the application was accepted? Or Should i e-file once again instead of waiting on the outcome of this application as i am already a month late to expiration of EAD?
*********
RFE asked me to clarify my intend for applying for EAD (replacement or renewal). I replied that i had asked for renewal and that i was not aware of any limit on the date.
===================Update=====================
EAD Card recieved with 1 year extension from date of expiry of previous EAD.

Default Re: Filed 150+ days before expiry but still approved!

My wife's ead was filed in April even though hers was due for expiry only in Oct 2008. Yday her ead was approved (her online status read "card ordered".

I have also read about one other case in , where the poster had filed too early but still received approval. Only problem is the new ead is valid for a year starting from the filing date, not 1 year from the expry of the old ead.
