Filing EAD through my OPT first and after 2 weeks through i-485?

Hey guys,

I'm on OPT right now and my EAD(Employment Authorization Document) will expires on Jan 2015. I could extend my OPT if my company had signed up with

Everify but they have not and they are not willing to do so. I am going to file i-485 through my wife but at least it will take 3 month to get a new EAD and I

need to work for living seriously.

This is what I am going to do and I want to consult you guys first. I want to file i-765 through my employer and I know that I will get a RFE from USCIS to

provide Everifiy evidences and will be given 3 month to send the evidence back to them which means I can still work within the next 3 month. ( As you may

know, if you have EAD and get a RFE, it will extend the expiration of your EAD card whitin 3 month until you send back what they need).

On the other side I am going to file i-485 and i-765 through my wife after I receive the RFE, so while I am waiting for my new EAD I can work too.

I know it's so complicated but do you think is this plan going to work and if not please tell me your reasons.

Thank you all.
