Good day everyone. My fiance will arrive in US next week via Fiance Visa. Can we ask for a work permit as soon as she arrive or we have to wait for the AOS? And also approximately how many weeks/months before she can start working?

Thank you for the response. Have a blessed day.

Hi,

I believe you can technically apply for a work permit before you do the AOS stuff but it takes about 90 days to come and costs a lot (I think about $350-400 but I'm not sure) so it's not worth it!

The best thing to do is file for AOS as soon as you have your certified copy of your marriage certificate, and then it usually takes 60-90 days for the work permit and travel authorization to come. Mine arrived only about a week before my AOS interview so I never ended up using them as the green card is used for both of those things.

Congrats on your fiancé arriving next week! :thumbs:

Agreed with first post. It is cheaper to file all at one time ($1070.00). AOS, EAD, & AP. If you file them separately, it will cost more. But, here is information for you read about just filing for EAD.

Filing for the Employment Authorization Document (EAD) before AOS will cost $380, and it will expire when her I-94 does. It is a waste of money. File for it at the same time as AOS and the fee is waived. You can also file for Advanced Parole(AP) at the same time as well(fee also waived). Send all 3 at the same time, and it will cost $1070. It will be about 2 or 3 months before she would have the EAD and be able to work.
