Military Spouse - Husband TDY soon

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hey guys!

 

My husband is going to be TDY (deployment) soon and I still didn’t receive my EAD/AP. He’s going to be gone for almost 3 months and I can’t even apply for a drivers license nor SSN. I don’t know what I’m going to do since I would need to take the car to get groceries etc. I can’t use my foreign drivers license anymore since I’m required to have a local license after 6 months of using my foreign one. I already submitted a SR but I still didn’t get an answer. I’m thinking about calling the USCIS military helpline and try to get it expedited. Do you guys think it will be possible for me to get my combo card this way or is there somebody who can help me with this and suggest a solution. The USCIS Service Center wasn’t very helpful.

 

This is my timeline so far:

 

Shipped package Friday, June 23rd 2017, 9:31 pm

 

Package delivered Monday, June 26th 2017, 12:06 pm

 

USCIS Acceptance Confirmation - June 27th (E-Mail & Text Message)

 

Received NOA in mail Monday, July 10th

 

Received biometrics appointment notice on July 14th,

Biometrics appointment on July 31st

 

Biometrics taken, July 24th (different location due vacation, early walk-in)

 

SR, September 11th

 

I will hit 90 days on Monday the 25th.

Thanks in advance. :)

I don't think you'll get an expedite for that. Since you're already in the USA the deployment probably won't be a valid reason for expedite. Maybe if that would be a tour overseas you accompany him to. But it's just 3 months.  And it sounds like your combo card will arrive any moment now. The expedite process will probably take longer to approve than that. 

 

You know..  my husband's military also and whenever he was gone and I couldn't drive I'd just move my butt and walk to the store and carry groceries back. Even when it was over 20 mins walk.

That was literally just an example.

These days it takes longer than 90 days for EAD. Even your timeline says to expect adjudication by October 24. 

 

What visa did you come on if you can't get a SSN?
