NOA for Interview Received, No EAD yet?

Hi everyone!

I am new here. Here is my journey with my USC husband so far:

10/2009 - met online

11/2010 - came here on B1/B2 visa

12/2010 - first meeting in person in Chicago, IL

03/2011 - moved in with him in IN

4/25/11 - got married in Mitchell, IN

5/02/11 - sent AOS packet (I-130/I-485/I-765) to Chicago Lockbox

5/04/11 - AOS packet received by Chicago Lockbox

5/23/11 - Received NOA for RFE (I-693)

5/27/11 - Sent RFE to DHS Lee's Summit, MO

6/02/11 - DHS Lee's Summit received REF reply

6/06/11 - Biometrics done at Louisveille, KY as per NOA schedule

6/24/11 - Received NOA for July 25 interview in Indianapolis

Like Batya, I was scheduled for an interview prior to receiving my EAD nor was there any update on my Case Status online. I saw in another thread last week that another VJ member,a May 2011 filer too, no EAD yet but with interview notice. This is good 'cause this seems fast for some of us. UGH the waiting, right?

However, my husband cannot include me in his car insurance policy yet because I don't have an SSN and DL ( State ID too) because I don't have my EAD yet. Our interview will be on July 25, 10am in Indianapolis. Same goes for health and life insurance policies. He was unemployed since Nov 2010 but got employed again in April 2011. We got the pay stubs and we will get the letter regarding his employment with rate and hours per NOA interview requirement. My question is, why no EAD still? Why was then interview scheduled first? Is this "normal"? So far I know 3 people, all May filers, in similar situation.

Also, I had my biometrics done in Louisville, KY CIS yet the interview for July 25 will be in Indianapolis CIS. Is this, again, "normal"? State-wise, should be Indianapolis CIS but distance-wise, we are closer to Louisville, KY.

Any inputs would be appreciated.

Thank you and good day!

:)

it can happen sometimes, you may not receive EAD at all, two of my friends never received it, I did, it won't make any difference anywho, GC handles everything,

don't worry about not having those proofs, IO will know that you can't be added to insurance policies and other stuff etc.etc.

Thanks to both mrsfrisbey and vkn & jsb for your inputs! I can breathe now. :) Well, that only means I can't get a job til after I get my GC, more waiting time..hope it will be approved on July 25th. We do have quotes for the insurances 2 weeks ago (haha!) but due to no SSN/DL, I can't be included..anyhow, requirement or not, I should be included in those policies, reminded my husband.

Have a blessed weekend to all!

he isn't my friend really, rather a friend's friend.

Hi everyone!

I am new here. Here is my journey with my USC husband so far:

10/2009 - met online

11/2010 - came here on B1/B2 visa

12/2010 - first meeting in person in Chicago, IL

03/2011 - moved in with him in IN

4/25/11 - got married in Mitchell, IN

5/02/11 - sent AOS packet (I-130/I-485/I-765) to Chicago Lockbox

5/04/11 - AOS packet received by Chicago Lockbox

5/23/11 - Received NOA for RFE (I-693)

5/27/11 - Sent RFE to DHS Lee's Summit, MO

6/02/11 - DHS Lee's Summit received REF reply

6/06/11 - Biometrics done at Louisveille, KY as per NOA schedule

6/24/11 - Received NOA for July 25 interview in Indianapolis

Like Batya, I was scheduled for an interview prior to receiving my EAD nor was there any update on my Case Status online. I saw in another thread last week that another VJ member,a May 2011 filer too, no EAD yet but with interview notice. This is good 'cause this seems fast for some of us. UGH the waiting, right?

However, my husband cannot include me in his car insurance policy yet because I don't have an SSN and DL ( State ID too) because I don't have my EAD yet. Our interview will be on July 25, 10am in Indianapolis. Same goes for health and life insurance policies. He was unemployed since Nov 2010 but got employed again in April 2011. We got the pay stubs and we will get the letter regarding his employment with rate and hours per NOA interview requirement. My question is, why no EAD still? Why was then interview scheduled first? Is this "normal"? So far I know 3 people, all May filers, in similar situation.

Also, I had my biometrics done in Louisville, KY CIS yet the interview for July 25 will be in Indianapolis CIS. Is this, again, "normal"? State-wise, should be Indianapolis CIS but distance-wise, we are closer to Louisville, KY.

Any inputs would be appreciated.

Thank you and good day!

Hi Batya and Prep.Mac

We seem to be on same schedule. I wish I could get the EAD because I got offered TAship ... but I have not gotten any updates on this. And it looks like you have to wait a little bit to get the greencard after the interview. Of course I have to accept TAship, but the paperwork can not be processed until I have that. Also, I don't know if I will be able to go to school until I have that. UGH! I so hope I will get the EAD before the July 27th interview, just so I can get all my paperwork sorted out at school. Please keep me up to date with your interviews ...

Thanks
