Time for H4 EAD

my wife lives in the US with a H1B. I own a H4, but live in Germany. Because of a bad lawyer we had to withdraw the first green card application. In January 2019, my wife's employer wants to start the GC process again (with a new lawyer). Originally it was planned that my wife does the AOS and then I complete the consular processing in Frankfurt.

The new greencard process has changed everything in time. My current employment contract in Germany ends on April 30, 2019. Now we are considering whether it makes sense to enter the USA after that and make the H4 EAD there.

From the 1st green card application we know that the EAD / AP took about 9 weeks for my wife. Can someone tell me how long the H4 EAD takes?
