GC approval while out of US

Myself and spouse traveled outside US after completing biometrics. I returned back to US, but spouse is still out of US. After spouse left US, then we received EAD and AP for both myself and spouse.

  1. Would spouse GC be approved, while out of US, at the same time when my GC is approved?

  2. I am wondering if spouse can continue to stay outside US, until we both get GC, and then I will leave US and we both will reenter US together, at that time I can take spouse GC physically with me.

For approval of adjustment of status, the beneficiary need to be physically present in the US. Otherwise it is a Consular Processing.

Actually, I have seen a few cases in recent past where GCs were approved when the applicants were travelling outside US (definitely not prolonged absence, though).
