Hello everyone ,

I know for many people this is just a waiting game :unsure: well anyway all I can say is just keep on going. We received my husbands biometrics appointment for AOS on the 5th May 2006, which was received by CSC 20th February 2006, . The problem is that we applied for the EAD on the same date , online.

We were then advised that you cannnot apply for EAD online so we resubmitted EAD and received NOA1 on April 3rd 2006 , can we ask for biometrics for EAD when he has his biometrics for AOS on the 5th May 2006.

I do hope you can help on this one. :thumbs:

Just bring your EAD and AOS NOAs in addition to your appointment letter and ask the ASC staff if they can do both. There's no harm in asking! :)

All you can do is ask when you go for the AOS biometrics :thumbs:

The same was the case for me. Overall, ASC staff seem to be pretty reasonable about accommodating requests.

09-02-2005 Applications for AOS, EAD, and AP received by MSC

10-21-2005 AOS fingerprint notice for 12-08-2005

11-07-2005 AP approved

12-05-2005 Infopass appt at San Jose office for interim EAD -- Refused, because it is already approved by MSC on 11-07-2005

12-07-2005 Attempt at interim EAD at San Francisco office -- no go. Back to San Jose, where CSO (chief station officer) tells they will contact MSC via email to request permission to issue interim EAD

12-08-2005 Biometrics for AOS and EAD. Having no EAD appt letter was no problem (used EAD NOA)

12-15-2005 EAD arrived in the mail

12-24-2005 Received interview letter; interview scheduled 03-01-2006

01-28-2006 Received replacement SSN card in married name (5 wks since application)

03-01-2006 AOS interview -- approved; received stamp in the passport

03-13-2006 Green card arrived in the mail
