Attaching Covering Letter to AOS

I am about to file for AOS and have a few questions that I would apreciate if somebody answered.

1) How and whom should be addressed while attaching a covering letter/statement to AOS application. Is there a proper format?

2) My NOA1 for the I-130 was lost/never received. The USCIS told me to attach an online copy to the AOS application. Should I mention it in the covering letter, as the original NOA1 was never received and that might create a confusion, if they don't find a copy of the original NOA1.

3) If accepted, do they issue EAD and if so, how much time does it take?

Regards and thanking you all in anticipation.

Address it to: To Whom it May Concern, and keep it brief -- a listing of the enclosures is sufficient (including the online copy of the NOA1)

The EAD will come within 90 days of submitting the package.

Answers in red:

1) How and whom should be addressed while attaching a covering letter/statement to AOS application. Is there a proper format?

I addressed it to:

"United States Department of Homeland Security

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services"

2) My NOA1 for the I-130 was lost/never received. The USCIS told me to attach an online copy to the AOS application. Should I mention it in the covering letter, as the original NOA1 was never received and that might create a confusion, if they don't find a copy of the original NOA1.

NOA1 is never attached, only the NOA2 (letter of approval) is attached

3) If accepted, do they issue EAD and if so, how much time does it take?

EAD is farely quick and you could get the EAD card in 3 months approx.

90 Days. Sigh!

How soon do they ask for the biometrics? Would I be able to acquire a SSN and apply for a Drivers License on an EAD Document.

2 to 3 months for biometrics and yes you can apply for a license with EAD
