Because the $1010 is the standard AOS filing fee, no exceptions (EAD & AP is just thrown in there now).

Why would anyone file for EAD for such a short time before the AOS seems like a waste of money.

In other words, the EAD is included in the Adjustment of Status package. I'm sure that you had to pay 300 dlls plus for this EAD right? well, if you would've filed everything for the green card and paid 1010 that would've included an EAD as well. Since you filed in different times, you have to pay twice.

Check the rules and step-by-step instructions listed in the other thread listed in this forum to avoid making this kind of mistakes and hurt your pocket $$$ or the process in the future ;)

Good luck!

I have a question stemming from this. We applied for AOS, EAD and AP together. We received the EAD and AP already, but the EAD is up for renewal in October of 2008. Our AOS is still pending. Do I still have to pay $300+ in order for the EAD to be renewed?

Just a comment: there are situations when people do prefer to file for EAD first and pay the money and then take their time (for various personal reasons) to file for AOS. So don't pass judgement too quickly about making mistakes and filing in the wrong order. If it's an informed decision regarding the additional money involved, then everyone is free to file in whichever order they want. However, it does seem that the OP was not aware that the EAD is included in AOS filing, hence his wondering if they still have to pay $1,010.

It depends on when you filed the AOS. If you filed after the new fees were in effect and paid the $1010 for AOS, then all interim benefits are included. Renewal of the EAD is one of those interim benefits and you will not have to pay for it. If you filed before the new fees were in effect, you will have to pay for the renewal.

I didn't personally do the paperwork so forgive me if this is an obvious question. Were the new fees in effect in August of 2007, right after the July bulletin fiasco? I believe we managed to file when USCIS extended the deadline, maybe August 15 or something. (does that date make sense to anyone?)

I am not aware of any fee extention deadline... Fees changed effective July 30, 2007.

July 30, 2007 was the last day to file w/the cheaper pricetag. Effective August 1, 2007, people had to pay the increased fee.
