Hi, my Fiancee and I plan to enter the US for the first time in december... From what I have read so far we have to get married and then she can apply for EAD or work permit which could take approx. 90 days to be approved... I have read once though that there may be a way that she could be able to work much closer to her date of entry... Is this true or is the EAD process always the same... meaning: marriage, application, approx 90+ day wait, approval.... my reason for asking is that she has a great job here where she is a valued employee... the company she works for has expressed to her that they would love for her to work for them in the states.... This is great news, but she wants to be able to tell them when she thinks she will be eligible for employment once she moves...

thanks for any insight...

The K1 work eligibility loophole has been closed. Now a K1 entrant must marry and file for adjustment of status (including the EAD).

My husband got an expedited greencard in August, he arrived here in early April, and we marrie3d on April 10th.

Our biggest delay--the City of Houston refused to release our marriage certificate within 30 days as is required by federal law. (This is set up by the IRS because of payroll issues in putting your new spouse/kids on your employee health insurance.) The clerk told me she doesn't have to give it for 90 days. I threw a huge fit and told everyone in the line that was extending out the door to head to either Fort Bend county or Galveston county next door because of this problem. People were actually leaving. The lady freaked out and said, "Okay, okay!"--then simply printed off the copies I had requested. This was almost 6 weeks after being married.

Because we fell outside the 30 day window for putting him on my insurance, that was a whole new battle.

My advice, go to a smaller county to get your marriage liscense. In my state, you can get it in any county and then marry in any county.

I would say to tell them 4-6 months. If she can so any work from her computer or consulting, I am not sure how that works. I have a friend from Mexico that works all over the world but his payroll is done in Mexico into his Mexican account. I asked him about his visa status once and he showed me his work visa, but it technically looks like he has never had a job. He is never in any city more than 2 weeks at a time.
