The combocard doesn't really scream "combo card!!". It just has the writing "serves as Advanced Parole" on there too. HOwever, it's most likely agencies such as DMV or banks are harder to convince that the this little card is accepted as ID when they have nothing to compare it too if they haven't seen it before. Some places haven't even seen a greencard before. A "brand new" combo card vs. driver's license/state ID - so far no place has accepted my combo card as the only proof of age or ID. Do yourself the favor of getting your wife at least a state ID and leave the EAD somewhere safe in the house and only carry a paper copy of it around.

basically it's an EAD Card with the notation " SERVES AS I-512 ADVANCE PAROLE" at the bottom of the card.

AP and EAD card -- USCIS

Q1. How is this card different from the current Employment Authorization Document (EAD)?

A1. The card looks similar to the current Employment Authorization Document (EAD) but will include text that reads, "Serves as I-512 Advance Parole". A card with this text will serve as both an employment authorization and Advance Parole document.

Q2. Why did USCIS combine these benefits in one card?

A2. With the new card, adjustment of status applicants no longer will have to carry both an EAD and a separate paper Advance Parole document while awaiting adjudication of their Form I-485 applications. Instead, applicants only will have to carry this one credit card-sized card. The new card is more secure and more durable than the current paper Advance Parole document.

Q4. If I receive this card, does that guarantee my re-entry into the United States if I travel?

A4. No. This card authorizes parole, not admission, to the U.S. Parole is not an admission or "entry". If you obtain this card, you may use it to travel abroad and return to the U.S. Upon arriving at a port-of-entry, you should present the card to a Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Officer to request parole. Issuance of an Advance Parole document does not guarantee that CBP will parole you into the U.S. If parole is granted, you will be permitted to come into the U.S. as a parolee, but will not have been 'admitted". Individuals who have been unlawfully present in the U.S. and subsequently depart and seek re-entry through a grant of parole may be inadmissible and ineligible to adjust their status.

WE are working on her driver's license.... but with her having 9 weeks left to go, not sure if taking her driving is a good thing.... one "leg cramp" or "tummy pain" could lead to a massive "heart attack" for me, and a massive bill from "AZ stupid motorists law"

OK, just google a bit more if you want to see what it looks like...

Your wife doesn't have to get driving all crazy with leg cramps right away. Getting state ID and then learner's permit(if she never held a driver's license before) can be somewhat of a process depending on your state. The permit is valid for 12 months as far as I know, or whenever the EAD expires, whichever comes first.

:rofl: The "leg cramp" or "Tummy pain" or even "back pain" from the baby she is carrying....It is not the driving.... it is the "bun in the oven" which worries me most, Asawa ko not working has helped a lot. but.... imagine a "sharp kick from the bun in the oven" at the wrong time while learning to drive.... AZ is sort of easy for a license. It is teaching her what monsoon means and AZ stupid motorists law.

I am just glad this is a "card" now versus two separate forms... it just makes sense now why there are only 2 NOA1's instead of 3.

this is one of those things I read back in Christmas at USCIS website. but never looked into agian. Christmas I was looking into insurance, Holiday gifts, New year's, parties, enjoying the season, and dealing with work plus getting AOS forms ready and looking at when to file taxes. Things have gotten calmer now...and this is not talked about much from anyone in the past few months... or I just missed the boat it was on.

Yes, they have been issuing them for over a year now. My husband got one back at the beginning of April 2011.

Shows an example at the bottom of the page: http://www.uscis.gov/portal/site/uscis/menuitem.5af9bb95919f35e66f614176543f6d1a/?vgnextoid=f5d28bcbf851e210VgnVCM100000082ca60aRCRD&vgnextchannel=6abe6d26d17df110VgnVCM1000004718190aRCRD
