Eligibility to Work

I am having my AOS interview this coming Thursday and my EAD never got ordered so far. I have had a job offer for a month and lately they have been asking me every other day when I can begin working. The employer needs me asap and my husband and I need the money :help:

So, if I get approved at the interview, am I allowed to work right away or do I have to wait for the actual green card to arrive? Does it make a difference if they stamp my passport after the interview?

What do you mean EAD never got ordered. You didn't file for EAD or USCIS never sent you a card? If you applied and didn't receive it after 90 days, make an infopass with your receipt and get an expedited EAD. In any case you can ask for your passport to be stamped at the interview if approved on the spot. Just tell the IO your financial situation and he/she will give you the stamp.

Thanks for your reply!

I applied for EAD concurrently with all the other forms, but never got notification that its production has been ordered, so I assume I will never get it since my interview is in 5 days (and it is less than 90 days since we submitted our petition). So it is legal to work with the stamp before I receive the actual green card?

Oftentimes, the GC is issued quicker than the EAD. Plan on having to wait approximately another 2 weeks.


There is no room in this country for hyphenated Americanism. When I refer to hyphenated Americans, I do not refer to naturalized Americans. Some of the very best Americans I have ever known were naturalized Americans, Americans born abroad. But a hyphenated American is not an American at all . . . . The one absolutely certain way of bringing this nation to ruin, of preventing all possibility of its continuing to be a nation at all, would be to permit it to become a tangle of squabbling nationalities, an intricate knot of German-Americans, Irish-Americans, English-Americans, French-Americans, Scandinavian-Americans or Italian-Americans, each preserving its separate nationality, each at heart feeling more sympathy with Europeans of that nationality, than with the other citizens of the American Republic . . . . There is no such thing as a hyphenated American who is a good American. The only man who is a good American is the man who is an American and nothing else.
