Hi all,

I have 2 questions.

1. Do all AOS interview have request for initial interview written on the notice?

2. I am going to hit my 90 day from the date of filing for EAD and was planning to go to the local office and see if i can get the EAD card but someone told me that it is 90 days from the date of fingerprint. Is that true???

Sarina, not sure about the initial interview phrasing - I didn't have an interview - but I HAVE heard it mentioned lots of times by other posters, so it must be fairly standard.

As for the EAD and 90 days ........ well in a nutshell, different offices interpret it in different ways. Some do it from the NOA date and others from biometrics. If your local office is not too far away, I would make an infopass appointment to check on it.

Which IS your local office? Someone else may be able to help out more accurately.

1. Yes, they state that its a request for an initial interview.

2. It's 90 days from your first notice of action for your EAD card, not the biometrics date. Therefore, you can plan to make an infopass appointment as soon as your 90 days are up.

THANK YOU GUYS... Its just that there is this office here where all they do is fill out immigration forms and they have been in business for 10 yrs.. and most of the time there information is 100 percent accurate. They told me its from the finger print date so i was getting a little worried. I don't want to take the time and go to the houston local office cause it takes for ever and then they turn me away..... as u can see My AOS interview is coming up so i m hoping and praying that i don't need my EAD but still u never know..

Some DO's do not consider an application "complete" without the fingerprints, so you may find it IS 90 days from your biometrics. All you can do is ask...

Make sure you're wearing clean knickers. You never know when you'll be run over by a bus.

Sarina,

Yes... all AOS interview notices are for "Initial Interview". it just covers them in the event that they wish to hold out on approving you for some reason. My AOS wasn't approved at the interview but I received an email notification a couple of days later stating I'd been approved and my green card was in the mail.

Skoopie,

From personal experience I can tell you that even though the USCIS's own guidelines state that an interim EAD can be issued on the 91st day after the NOA date, some offices interpret the guidelines differently and argue that an EAD application is not properly filed UNTIL biometrics have been taken.

Sarina,

By all means go ahead and arrange an infopass appointment anytime from the 91st day after your NOA. However, be aware that even after showing the officer at your local office a printout from the USCIS website, they may still, in rare cases tell you to come back on the 91st day after your biometrics !!

Best of luck

Mark

Sarina,

He may have to wait but that doesn't mean he will have to wait...

You have nothing to lose by making an infopass appointment and asking for the interim EAD. Your local office might be able to interpret the instructions correctly and therefore you won't have a problem. I just wanted you to be aware that while most offices won't have a problem issuing an interim EAD on the 91st day after your NOA, some might.

Mark :)
