You must be a K3 Visa holder if you are asking about EAD before you file for AOS.... but your timeline is blank... Anyway if you file for EAD before you file for AOS it will be valid for the time remaining on your K3 visa.... yes you have to pay the fee $340 and no it wont be deducted from the cost of AOS.... also remember that if you wait to file for AOS and it is more than 12 month since you had your medical when you do file for AOS you will need to have the full medical done again as it is only valid for 12 months.... and that will cost you extra $$$ too...

Yes you can file for the EAD before you file for the Greencard..... the EAD would be based on your K3 and not AOS and would expire on the same date as your K3...

You will still have to pay the full $1010.00 to file AOS and if it is more than 12 months since your medical was done you will need a new medical as well...

EAD before filing AOS IS $340, and is NOT deductible from the $1010 AOS filing fee.

K-1 SHOULD NOT file for EAD before AOS, it takes 90 days or so to approve EAD, and this EAD is the "Temp EAD" which expires 90 days after entry to the USA, it is based on the I-94 card.

K-3 can file for EAD Before and pay $340, K-3 EAD like K-1 EAD expires the same time as I-94, however K-3 has an I-94 that is valid for up to 2 years, some K-3s want to hold on filing for AOS until just before their 2nd wedding anniversary, this may save the K-3 from getting a Conditional Green-card, and then having to file to remove those conditions 2 years later and pay an additional $540.


OUR TIME LINE Please do a timeline it helps us all, thanks.
