Hello All,

Question 11 on the I-765 Employment Authorization Document:

11. Have you ever applied for employment authorization from U.S.C.I.S.?

I have worked in the U.S. as an H-2B visa holder in the past, but my employer did all of the paperwork for me. So technically I have never applied for employment authorization. But on the other hand, when they look it up it's going to say that it I have worked in the U.S. Should I answer yes or no to question 11?

Thanks in advance for your help

Thank you, that's what I was thinking too, then it says (If yes, complete below)

Below what? Sign then date it I guess?

Do I need explain my past employment on a separate piece of paper?

Thanks again

OOPS, I tried to edit that last reply but it wouldn't let me, I found where "below" was, I feel silly now.

I guess I need to call my employer to get "which" U.S.C.I.S. office, all the dates and all of the documentation.

Oh goody

The answer is "Yes" Your employer handled the paperwork for you.

You will submit a G-325a which lists all past employment for the past five years. If it was not within the past five years, no need to explain it.

Thank you Gary and Alla! I am starting to wonder if it is even worth applying and paying $340 for the EAD. It sounds like by the time I will finally receive it in the mail, my adjustment of status gets approved (hopefully) around the same time or shortly after? Then you can work after that anyways right? Or am I wrong? Thanks in advance again, I am trying to do as much reading as I can around these forums so I can stop bothering you guys, lol. I am not a lazy person and I do wish to work ASAP, don't get me wrong, I'm just trying to justify the cost of the EAD, that's all.

You are a K3 holder so if you want to work before filing for your adjustment of status, it might be beneficial for you to file for EAD now. You have legal status in the US until your I94 expires, which should be two years from the date of your entry on the K3.

If you are planning on filing for your adjustment now and have the funds to live on without your income, I wouldn't bother filing for the EAD separately. You can't operate on the assumption that your greencard will come quickly - it should but there are always exceptions to the norm.
