Work Permit, coming on 82 days...no news

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My husband's work permit has not come yet. We filed in December for the Adjustment of Status, plus the work authorization. Got knocked back on Xmas-eve with an RFE because I had been living in the UK for three years as a student, so they wanted sponsors and tax stuff from those people. We got all that stuff together from my family, which took a while because they all own businesses, so it was more of a going through CPAs and what not, sent it all back in in Feb, didn't hear anything.

We called in April and was told it was still "processing". Next week will be 90 days since we resent. Is this normal or is there something really wrong here?

Also, reading conflicting info about Advanced Parole. If we have a trip tenatively planned to Bali in October for our anniversary, are we eligible for that? Or can he only travel for family emergency or business purposes? Sorry if I'm out of the loop here, haven't been able to keep up with the site because I'm working two jobs to keep us afloat, seeing as how he can't work yet, bless him! :blush:

We filed in Dallas, Texas btw.

I assume you filed DORA so I am not familiar with how DORA works exactly (you certainly are not seeing anything near rapid)... I know the RFE holds up everything but should have resolved by now.....

AP is AP... It can be used as needed


YMMV

We couldn't do DORA because they closed the program in September.

Then should you not have filed your AOS via Chicago and not Dallas?

Absolutely, sorry. We did file through Chicago. Live in Dallas, filed in Chicago. Apologies, between the K-1, AOS, etc etc it's all muddled in my head...
