since your case has been sent to CSC it is more than likely that you will get your GC before EAD.
I filed jan 19th, my EAD has not been touched during the entire time. And my AOS got approved march 27.

So its been 41 days since you applied, and probably less than that since the date on the receipt notice?

Why is it taking so long? Its not.

Come back and complain in June.

We need an advice here for people to wait BEFORE sending their EAD. The rule should go like this:if your file gets transfered to California, DO NOT mail the EAD.Otherwise, mail off the EAD. DO NOT mail the EAD with the AOS otherwise you risk waiting $180 for the EAD you may never need.

What I CHOSE to do is I never mailed an I-765, but that's a risk. We might not get approved for 2 years who knows... or we might get approved in 2 months... We took the risk.

And you need to calm down, it has only been 41 days, how do you know you won't get your EAD in a few days ? Or that your whole case will be approved today ? You don't know what's going to happen and when, but it is too early in the game for you to be complaining already.

Get an infopass and go tell them that you want your EAD that you paid for, even if that means delaying your process.... Edited by florida_guy07

pretty crappy advice IMHO. To pay $180 to get some insurance in case you get stuck for a few months, not so bad in my book. Think of it like this : many people could earn that back in a WEEK or two. Interim benefits are very important, and its irresponsible to suggest otherwise to OTHERS. Make your decision for yourself, but don't *advise*.
