Renewal of I-765 Application for Employment Authorization (EAD)

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone. I need a couple of advices as I am not completely sure about the next steps. This is my situation:

- filed for AOS in September 2013 while F2A category was current

- done biometrics, got I-765 approved and received EAD in December

- done GC interview but in the mean time F2A was not current anymore so they said to me to wait and they will send me GC when it moves forward again

My EAD expires now in December and I need to renew it.

1. Do I need to pay some filling fee for renewal if I send documents by mail? I've read I don't need to pay anything because I've filed for AOS after 2007.

2. By the info on http://www.uscis.gov/i-765-addresses, I need to send documents under ©(9) category to Chicago. Correct?

USCIS Chicago Lockbox

For U.S. Postal Service:

USCIS
P.O. Box 805887
Chicago, IL 60680-4120

For Express mail and courier deliveries:

USCIS
Attn: FBAS
131 South Dearborn-3rdFloor
Chicago, IL 60603-5517

3. Which supporting documents would be recommended for me to send? I've read I need to send two photos, old receipts and copy of my old EAD.

Thank you all for your help :)

1) No fee. Just send a copy of your I-485 NOA with the I-765 renewal application to show your AoS is still pending.

2) Correct.

3) (i) A completed I-765; (ii) a copy of the front and back of your current expiring EAD; (iii) the aforementioned copy of your I-485 NOA receipt; (iv) two passport photographs.

Thank you. I also currently have I-512L Parole Document which expires in December. Can I also file I-131 without filling fee? In instructions it says that I cannot file I-131 if I already have Advance Parole. That is true but it will expire so should I file or wait? Thank you!

Yes, you can renew the AP using an I-131 in the same way. I think you can even put them in the same envelope.

Same supporting documents, except a completed I-131 instead of an I-765.
