How does NOA1 for I-130, I-485, and I-765 allow my spouse to stay in USA?

Filed: AOS (pnd) Country: Haiti

I have not received the actual I-797 yet but we received an email stating they are in the mail.

I am wondering with these things how (is) she legally allowed to stay here.

We did not file the I-131 as I believe that is only if she plans to leave the country during this process - and also we can file that later if we change our mind.

Input appreciated.

The NOA1 for an I-485 application gives authorization to stay in the USA until the case is adjudicated. It does not make the beneficiary a resident, it just authorizes their continued stay in the USA.
