New to Forum, Please HELP. When Should I file for EAD expedition?

18 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Very new to forum, hope this is not silly.

I filed I485,130, 131 and 765 on June 18th. I have a job offer already and from what I've read, folks can expedite the EAD if they have offers in hand.

I really hope to expedite it as soon as possible, or I may lose the offer. I called USCIS and they told me that I can expedite it once I get the first NOA (receipt number). But do ppl usually expedite their cases after biometrics?

Thanks a ton!

Dude, it's family-based AOS!!!

Family-based means K1, K2, K3 visas... You are adjusting from H1B which is work visa. Be educated.

Is this the right place?YES! I really don't understand the setup of this forum. Read some of the current threads and postings.

How did you answer the question on Page 2, in Part 3, A, of your recent I-485 application, "In what status did you last enter?" http://www.uscis.gov/sites/default/files/files/form/i-485.pdf

Your thread was placed into the correct forum.

Good luck on your immigration journey.

So do you happen to know if I can expedite EAD before biometrics?

No, perhaps other forum members have a helpful comment to share. Here is the USCIS expedite criteria: http://www.uscis.gov/forms/expedite-criteria
