Arrival to the USA

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

After 5-1/2 years, we are finally together in the USA, arriving on 30 June and coming through Minneapolis. I went to France to accompany my wife to the USA, and immigration was great. She presented her packet and I-94 and was "Welcomed home" as we passed through. Now comes the filing of the I-485, and I will file the I-765 at the same time at no cost (true?). I understand that this is a temporary work permit until the greencard comes, but correct me if this is not the case. We are both still on cloud nine and I wish all of you who are still waiting success. What I can tell you is that "patience" is the key here, and it is definitely a test in that!

Congratulations to you both. :thumbs:

Yes, the I-765 is the form she will need to file for EAD and can be filed with the I-485. The $1,010 fee will cover both forms.
