EAD versus GC...and getting a job.....??

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

hi everybody, is it truth that the EAD and AOS are processed separated? what does it mean?

Our AOS was approved but we're still waiting for the green card, our biometrics for the ead are this next friday...september the 29th, does it mean that I could get the green card before than the EAD? or I'll get my EAD and then...the green card?

I read somewhere else that there is a couple worried about their EAD, the husband is still waiting for his EAD ,he wants to get a job...but he already has his green card, doesn't the green card aloud you to get a job too?

thank you

:luv:

I am under the assumption that EAD is before the Green Card, since our's worked normally my husband recieved his EAD about 1 month before the green card. The EAD is only temporary, The GC is good for 2 years.

Check into the rules and regs at the DHS website.

Yes, the EAD and AOS are processed separetely, and in different centers. In some areas, it takes a while before the AOS interview so the EAD is *normally* received well before the AOS is approved.

In your case, you could very well receive your green card very soon...but since you may not, and if it isn't too difficult for you to visit the center for biometrics, I would keep the EAD bio appointment. You don't know how long it will take to actually receive the green card and if you don't go to the EAD bio then you will be without either the EAD or GC. It does seem it could be a waste of time in your case to go through the motions for the EAD, but who knows?

If you receive the green card before Friday, then you shouldn't need to go to the EAD bio, and should cancel the appointment. The green card does allow you to work, so you would no longer need the EAD (so unsure why whomever you are referring to is concerned about their EAD if there is already a green card obtained).

Congrats on the approval and hope you receive the GC soon!

thank you very very much,you were very helpful, however I've got something else to ask..sorry about so many questions..I meant my case is approved because we were told that we were approved the interview's day...do I need to get a letter saying that my case was approved? because if this is the case...we've got no letter:(:( and I'm still pending...
