EAD Work Permit Question

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

So I just married my fiance who was a K1, and I wanted to know if I HAD to pay for the Adjustment of Status before she can apply for the EAD Work permit. I'm assuming Adjustment of Status application + fee is probably required before you can apply for work permit, but I just wanted to know for sure regardless. Any help would be greatly appreciated !

Yes...... when you apply for  EAD and AP  at the same time as you lodge the application forms for the AOS, there is no charge for the EAD / AP. So there is really no way round paying for the AOS. She cant get the EAD  / AP without having an AOS in process.

There's an option to apply for a EAD for a K-1 holder before AOS, however, it doesn't do you any good. It's a total waste of money. Such a EAD would only be valid as long as the i-94 (ie 90 days from entry) and since it currently takes about 4 months to even get it approved.. well.. 

 

So yes, the only real option is to file for EAD and AP when you file for AOS.


K-1: 12-22-2015 - 09-07-2016 (260 days)

AP: 12-20-2016 - 04-07-2017 (108 days)

EAD: 01-18-2017 - 05-30-2017 (132 days)

AOS: 12-20-2016 - 07-26-2017 (217 days)

 

ROC: 04-19-2019 earliest filing date

Dee Elle, maybe i'm just confusing myself with your response. " . when you apply for  EAD and AP  at the same time as you lodge the application forms for the AOS, there is no charge for the EAD / AP. ". No charge for the EAP, but whats the AP ?

Advance Parole, always recommended to file for when you file for AOS. It's for free just like the EAD.
