Production of AP/EAD Card ordered

13 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Got the text and e-mail today, 1/9/13, that my wife's AP/EAD was ordered for production. I'm just curious as to how long it typically takes to receive it. We have our GC interview on 1/15/13. Thanks.

Likely 7-10 days from approval. You might get it before the interview, in any case, good luck! Ours is on the 17th, getting kind of nervous but also, excited.

Thanks! We're a little nervous too! Have all of our notebooks together with all of our documents, photos, etc. My wife's English is better than she admits and that's the only thing that has her nervous. Good luck to you too!

Thank you, I did. I have our two 3 ring notebooks with originals and copies of everything and a bunch of photos we've taken in the last 4 months all ready to go! We also have our notebook from the Embassy interview with all those originals and copies too!

Sounds like you are ready to go. :thumbs:

It is great not having to think about, or deal with, USCIS for 21 months...... :yes:

Good luck!

Best of luck at your interview next week. We are continuing right behind you with our filing a week after yours (November 2) and our interview two weeks after yours on January 29. Looking to getting our 785/131 so we can begin warm weather vacation planning as it is threatening to get down to the low thirties tonight and Jamnan is getting over her first U.S. cold.

And best of luck to you too! Got the text/e-mail for tracking the AP/EAD card and it should arrive tomorrow! I reckon we'll do fine at our interview as our time together just being husband and wife (and not always on holiday) has made us grow closer. Yes, the cold weather, we had a couple of nights in the low 40s and my wife can't believe it! I don't think I've ever bought so much firewood! And she insists on putting a blanket on our dog at night (he's inside and has no idea what's she doing but he seems to like it!) We're going back to see family on 2/7 so she's excited about the warm weather!
