AOS & EAD question!!

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

Just need clarification and pardon me if it's a straight forward answer. We're about to file AOS/EAD within the next 2 weeks (we get married this coming Monday), and I am just wondering....

When we file, i go through biometrics first, then hopefully get EAD and a interview for a green card.

My question is : When i receive EAD that means i can work while AOS is in process? Or do i have to wait until i actually get the green card in hand?

Thank you in advance!!!

Once you have the EAD in hand, you can work. Apply for the AP at the same time as AOS/EAD. It will be free when filed with AOS and will be a combo card with the EAD if you apply. It will allow you to travel before you have your green card (you never know...and getting your green card can easily take a year).
