Case Status: Case Ready To be Scheduled For Interview - BUT WHERE'S THE EAD/PAROLE AUTHORIZATION?

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hey there amigos!

So good news is that the case status site has this up:

Case Is Ready To Be Scheduled For An Interview

As of April 23, 2015, we are ready to schedule your Form I-485, Application to Register Permanent Residence or to Adjust Status, Receipt Number MSCXXXXX, for an interview. We will schedule your interview and send you a notice. Please follow any instructions in the notice. If you move, go towww.uscis.gov/addresschange to give us your new mailing address.

This is good to see. The bad news is that we have yet to receive the I-765 EAD or the I-131 - Advanced Parole document. We filled on the 27th of February and have yet to receive them. Is it possible to receive the interview before the EAD/Advance Parole docs? I have heard we should receive the EAD/Advance Parole docs within 3 months of filing or 2 months following the biometrics appointment. If this time goes by and we still receive nothing, what course of action might we take to fix things?

Thanks again for all the info and I look forward to getting some insight.

Warm regards,

~Kevin & Jeimmy

Congrats! I have seen multiple posts on here with people receiving green card before EAD/AP or receiving approval just before the interview date.

Btw, you should remove your case number!

All is fine. You might even get info. on your EAD/AP at the interview, but I would think you will have those docs any day.

Out interview was waived, I just wonder why some AOS interviews are waived, and some are not. Just thinking out loud.

Any way good luck, with your interview, be ready, good docs..,,.then no USCIS for about 2 years.

EAD/AP not needed once the green card is approved anyway.

Thanks for all the well-wishes/information guys (and girls, it's much appreciated). Particularly that link KayDeeCee, it is much appreciated. I just realized that about our case number, does anyone know how we can edit the post?

I'm pretty much in the same boat as the OP, but my wife's interview is already scheduled for 06/10/2015, and no update on status of EAD/AP card from USCIS.gov. But if I read right, all they need to do is stamp her passport (i-551) once she passes her interview, so that she can reenter the country if she travels, even without an AP, right?

They do not always approve your case on the spot at the interview, and they do not readily just hand out I-551 stamps. IF you are approved on the spot, you can ask the IO IF they will provide you an I-551 stamp because you have travel plans. Bring those with you to show the IO.
