A Bit Disheartening

9 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I was so excited to go in for biometrics! Playing the waiting game now just sucks. My husband and I are a little stressed about money, and I can't work because I don't have my EAD yet. I called USCIS customer service just to hear something. Actually hearing the three-month timeline was disheartening.

I'm trying to find ways to distract myself, and just be as supportive to my husband as possible.

Well, I've been seeing a lot of people get their EAD card within 60 days after applying, instead of getting disheartening, start looking for jobs and whenever you see the approval notice, you can start applying, shouldn't take long for you to receive your card after that.

What have you been doing for the last 14 years?


“If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.”

You managed to be undocumented for 14 years now you're disappointed they're making you wait for 3 months? Shame on USCIS!

I know! I know! I'm weird. It hasn't been the easiest 14 years. I'm sure many of you can relate. I'm also extremely anxious to see my grandfather. He's been very ill.

Great news though! I received an email alert that the interview is set for April 27!
