EAD possible if you have an RFE?

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I got an RFE for initial evidence (relating to I485 - cosponsor didnt send a W2) at the same time I got a biometrics appointment letter (relating to I765).

Did my biometrics today thru walk-in. Don't think I can respond to the RFE until next week cuz I'm still waiting on my cosponsor.

Will they order production of my EAD anyway or will the process be frozen?

For what it's worth. I received an RFE, then went to biometrics, received EAD card and interview letter... And I've yet to reply to the RFE. The RFE was for a new copy of the I-693.

Thanks for the anecdote. Out of curiosity - why haven't you replied to the RFE? Don't they deny the application altogether if you don't ever respond?

Your RFE has nothing to do with your I-765, so yes, it is possible to get the EAD before you submit the RFE. However, make sure you submit the RFE on time, so you won;t have any unpleasant surprises, like an I-130/I-485 denial and such.

You get 87 days to reply to an RFE. I had to get my doctor to write out a new medical altogether because someone messed up the original one. I just got that and a day after, I got the interview letter. So I debated for a few days what to do. It's doing in the mail tomorrow. ;)

Hey Kittyfang!

I myself received a RFE to send in my I-693, I-864 and a new version of my birth certificate. The RFE was mailed from USCIS on December 22. 2010, but I completed my Biometrics on December 21, 2010. Do you think I would still be able to get an EAD card? There are others that are saying NO I would not, so I'm a little confused!!

By the way which number did you use to call USCIS to expedite your request for production of your EAD card?

I didn't call to get my case expedited. I was a mistake on their part. But, to answer your question, I called the normal USCIS number. I guess that if called them and explained your issue and wish, they would most likely transfer you to someone who can help you further.

As for the EAD, I don't know. USCIS is a big complex thing hidden from our view. We only glimpse at it once it a while when it wants something from us or during interviews and such. But really, it's hard to figure out what will work.

I would have said "call and ask them"... but the last time I did that, I blurred the waters even more. :bonk:
