So, when I apply for AOS and EAD at the same time, do I have to pay both the fees for AOS and EAD or is the fee a combined amount ($1000+) ? If I apply for EAD before I apply for AOS, i know the fee is $300+.

if i dont make sense.. sorry!

bear with me :bonk:

You cannot apply for EAD before AOS. You can only apply for EAD along with AOS or after AOS.

Actually you can... it is not in my opinion worth it as the EAD will expire concurrent with the I-94 but you can do it. You will file under classification a[6] instead of c[9].


YMMV
