We were recently married on our K1 visa on January 28 and now we're left researching about AOS. I have a burning question...how can my wife obtain a work permit while waiting before the issuance of a green card?

Thank you.


December 5, 2005: We met online and our lives changed--instant connection, became best friends

May 15, 2006: She is put on temporary hold from her job and asks me if I could hold on for her in the event she didn't get the job back. I said "yes, of course" and she finally proclaimed her love to me and admitted she'd loved me since February.

September 25, 2006: I land in Manila airport and rush into my baby's arms for the first time. We were both surprised to realise we were NOT nervous.

September 25, 2006: Our first kiss :P

September 27, 2006: I proposed to her in person and she accepted! :)

December 20, 2006: Mailed I-129 K1 petition to Texas service Center

January 15, 2007: Petition returned to me rejected :/ (placed wrong amount on check--duh!)

Febrary 10, 2007: Resubmitted the petition adding updated info pages and a CORRECT check

February 26, 2007: NOA1

May 28, 2007: I land in Manila on our anniversary and we feel whole and complete yet again :)

June 20, 2007: NOA2 which said it would take six months for an interview (Dunno why it said that)

August 4, 2007: My baby receives Packet 4 unexpectedly out of nowhere--the frantic cramming begins

August 23, 2007: Frantically prepared documents FedExed

August 30, 2007: My baby has a long two days at St. Lukes but checks out fine! :)

September 6, 2007: Interview date: after 8 agonising hours--APPROVED!!! :D

September 6, 2007: Plans for her arrival in January 2008 for our wedding are established! :)

January 28, 2008: Marriage

File for EAD WITH the AOS filing.

EAD costs nothing when I-765 application is included with the I-485.

DO NOT FILE FOR EAD BEFORE FILING I-485, this results in a 90 day EAD that expires 90 days after entry, this EAD costs $340, and takes up to 90 days to get. (A USELESS EAD CARD)

That is incorrect. File the I-765 (and for Advance Parole if you want to leave the US before the G.C.) with the AOS and it is all the same fee. You pay 1010$ fee for AOS regardless of if you file for the EAD and AP or not. You should get both AP and EAD within 90 days.
