we are filing our AOS and i have a bunch of questions.

1. the I-765: is that filled out if the K-1 visa holder has a temporary EAD for 90 days? is this the form for the actual 1 year EAD? Is it possible to receive the EAD before the Approval of AOS?

Ill be writing later with more.

Yes, you send in I-765 to get the one-year Work Authorization.

And it is always approved before the AOS, otherwise there would be no need for it, because once you have your Green Card, you are able to work and travel.

Edited to say:

You can't submit the EAD application without submitting the AOS application, though and you can't submit either of them until after you are married.

Yeah the form is for a year and it's still possible to send it in despite having a 90 day working permit from POE. We had one of those, but were fine for getting a yearly one anyway until our AOS was approved.

Make sure you write in the correct eligibility category -- you are applying for EAD based on AOS, not based on K-1 visa. If you write in K-1 visa, you'll get one for only 90 days or you won't get one at all, and they're not going to refund your money.
