Hi there,

I am not sure if a similar post have been posted (if so, please merge this one). We mailed our AOS combo package (EAD/AP/GC) on September 14.

We got our e-mail notifications for 3 NOAS with receipt numbers today. YAY!

Good Luck to all of us!

We filed our AOS on 9/4 and my hubby had his biometrics appt on 10/3. Hoping to hear about the EAD and AP card soon! They told him at his biometrics appt that it would take 90 days from then. He is going crazy not being able to work.

Oh hey! I'm a September filer yes.gif With all the commotion about our friends from USCIS sending the NOAs with a different A number, I forgot to add myself to the thread!

When they sent the NOA1 for all 3 items, they also included the Biometrics appointment information. Since I had to make an InfoPass appointment to fix the A number situation, I got it for the same day of the biometrics.

I'll keep you posted!

Just got a text saying AP - EAD was approved! :) HAPPY EARLY BIRTHDAY TO MY HUBBY!

I am also a September filer. I filed on September 3rd and got the biometrics done on October 3rd. I am waiting for the green card interview letter. Based on my research, people normally have their interview 2 months after their biometrics which will be in December. We did not applied for EAD since it was not free and from what I saw it was going to arrive just before the green card.
