3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hey Guys!

My wife recieved her EAD card today, and yes it's valid for one year. But her I-194 expired last Dec. 13, 2008. right now we are waiting for her Green Card which i think will take atleast 3 more months..

can she start using her EAD eventhough the I-194 stamped on her passport expired?

I asked this because i know how important the I-194's validity for K-1 Visa holder.. and yes, I'm confused!

The expiry date of the I-94 has no baring on her EAD she applied for along with her AOS. She can start looking for work. Once she has been approved for her AOS she will no longer need a EAD. In fact when she goes for her AOS interview the officer will most likely take her EAD and the I-94 and AP if she has that, as they are no longer needed.

Happy Job hunting.

EAD is not proof of immigration/residency status (like the I-94), it is simply employment authorization. Think of it another way - when the PR/Green Card arrives - she will no longer need the EAD (because the PR/Green Card is both immigration/residency status and work authorization). :thumbs:
