where to send EAD appl. (after I-485 was filed)?

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi all!

I want to help a friend that came in the USA on a K1 visa. His timeline:

Dec 18/2006 - entered USA

Dec 22/2006 - marriage

Feb 12/2007 - I-485 sent to Chicago lockbox

Feb 26/2007 - assigned case # MSCxxxxxxxxxx, that is Missouri Service Center

March 1/2007 - fingerprints for AOS scheduled on March 20/2007

He wants to apply for EAD but not sure where to send the I-765 application. The I-765 instructions state to send at the same Service Center where I-485 was sent, meaning Chicago, but now the application is in Missouri.

Can somebody help and tell where to send the EAD application? If Missouri, which is the correct address?

Thank you!

Chicago lockbox is MSC. Chicago is merely a gateway for all mail to be processed.

So he must send the EAD application to Chicago lockbox?

:yes:

Can't the I-765 be filed online now? Maybe a bit quicker response? I.e. Not waiting for the mail to deliver. Only a couple days difference, but... every little bit helps!

2005-08-10: Met Natalia and fell in love. Too bad she didn't.

2006-01-13: Married. Biggest mistake of my life.

2006-03-07: Began the I-130/I-129F process.

2006-11-01: POE - JFK / Home in Austin!

2006-11-15: She hits me and continues pattern of abuse.

2006-11-16: I filed for divorce.

2006-11-17: Wife is served divorce papers; she and daughter return to Russia.

2007-12-08: She returns to Russia "for the holidays" (lied to lawyers and court).

[many more ups and downs during this time period - mostly downs]

2008-03-26: File for bankruptcy.

2008-07-30: Bankruptcy finalized.

2008-08-27: Divorce final. Started piecing my life back together.

(See my timeline for details.)

Disclaimer: I'm just a guy who married for love, but she didn't! All she wants is money and a green card.

I think *grabs the forms instruction*

Family-based adjustment applicant --©(9). File your EAD application with a copy of the receipt notice or other evidence that your Form I-485, application for permanent residence, is pending. You may file Form I-765 together with your Form I-485.

IF you look for an address for ©(9) you will not find, ergo send to Chicago.

we are filing them together...soon, I hope!

Austin_Volgograd,

More likely a bit slower processing. The I-765 filed online goes nowhere until the applicant submits the required supporting documentation by post and the USCIS is able to match the documentation to the application. It's easier for them when everything arrives already together as a complete package.

..... Can't the I-765 be filed online now? Maybe a bit quicker response? I.e. Not waiting for the mail to deliver. Only a couple days difference, but... every little bit helps!
