K1 Approved! Question about I-765

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Well we filed our I-129f in May! everything is finished now and I have entered the US we had absolutely no problems that process was very easy and everything went smoothly! We are getting married on August 24th just 4 short days away!!!

So the question is, should I bother filing an I-765 to get a work permit or should I just file for an I-485, thanks!

Just a suggestion. Better to file I-765 because you do not know what will happens in the future. Have at least EAD make you easy to change your maiden name to married name on SSN, to get driver license, or get a job. Many people won't bothered to file but regretted later since many people have waited more than a year for their green card.

~Inquiry about AOS-related process~

(organizer hat off)

Agree with Girl from Celebes. :thumbs: General forum recommendation is to concurrently file for AOS/EAD/AP, due to rather extended AOS processing times. Read the USCIS link for good deal on the fees when filing concurrently: http://www.uscis.gov/i-485


Completed: K1/K2 (271 days) - AOS/EAD/AP (134 days) - ROC (279 days)

Having just come from Canada myself and recently filed my I-435, you'll definitely want to file the Employment Authorization and Advanced Parole requests as well. There's no reason not to. There are no extra fees for them as long as they're submitted along with the I-435.

As others have said, the Green Card can take up to a year, and who knows, maybe even longer if there are problems. That means no job and no trips back to Canada (or anywhere else) during that time. On the other hand, with I-765 and I-131, you can be earning some money and traveling within 90 days (give or take) of filing. Obviously you don't have to do any of these things if you don't want to, but wouldn't you rather have the option?

Do them all, why wouldn't you, costs nothing other than a bit of time, some photos and a few extra copies of bits of paper, madness not to.

I got my EAD/AP after 72 days so I was all set to work, come and go etc, my GC took another 6 months after that, it's a no brainer.

Also depending on what you did for employment in Canada, you may be eligible for EI on the grounds of voluntarily leaving work to be with spouse (but you will need EAD for it).
