Since this is for AOS, you should have no issues with respect to illegally working as @powerpuffstated, this is forgiven for a spouse of a USC.  For the medical, if they feel they need an updated one, it should be an RFE, not a denial.

 

Good Luck!

That’s actually really surprising to me. I’ve always been told it’s a huge problem.

So what is/are the potential consequences of working with no EAD? I don't have any intention of doing so (therefore not looking for tips, lol), but I'm curious if it doesn't come up at AoS, when would it?

ROC....(if interviewed)

N400....

Any point up until Citizenship.

Remember, you'll have a different IO each time who can have their own opinions.

I did not say it would not come up at the AOS interview, just that I agree, the spouse of a USC is forgiven for illegally working or overstaying assuming they entered the US legally (i.e. with inspection on a valid visa).  The IO may ask about it as they verify the I485 information, but who knows for certain.  Now if the OP had not disclosed they had worked illegally, then it could cause real issues as to material misrepresentation.  Also, if they entered the US illegally, then there could be issues.

When my wife had her AOS interview, the IO gave her a form letter about the no decision at that point, and also told us if approved, it would be a 2 year GC, so we would have to submit for Removal of Conditions in two years.  Keep in mind, that was 2015, so I am not sure what they do now.

No it wouldn't since the misrep wouldn't be material. https://www.uscis.gov/policy-manual/volume-8-part-j-chapter-3 "The misrepresentation is only material if it led to the person gaining some advantage or benefit to which he or she may not have been entitled under the true facts." The unauthorized work by IR is forgiven per INA 245(c)(2) and INA 245(c)(8) https://www.uscis.gov/policy-manual/volume-7-part-b-chapter-8

Nope. It wouldn't affect those applications.
