EAD - card being produced, AP - RFE ??

9 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hey guys

Just got an update on our K1- AOS/EAD/AP case

AOS, nothing (too early obviously). EAD case status says card is being produced and will be mailed but AP case status says RFE?

I thought both EAD and AP was on 1 card?

AP and EAD are utterly different things and they are requested separately, the AP should come as a letter

I was under the impression that EAD/AP is a combo card.

It usually is. Maybe there is a mistake in the online update. That can happen. I would wait and see if you receive the combo card or not. See if it states, "Serves as I-512 Advance Parole". If not, and the RFE is real, then you would receive a separate paper AP document once the RFE is satisfied and it is approved.

Q8. Will USCIS still issue separate EAD and Advance Parole documents?

A8. Yes. USCIS will continue to issue separate EAD and Advance Parole documents as warranted. For example, you will receive an EAD without permission to travel if you do not request Advance Parole or if your Form I-765 is approved but your Form I-131 is denied.

Thanks everyone,

It seems the case status tool is funky. Both cases now say approved. So weird...

Glad to hear it was only the errors of the USCIS updating system that was to blame. You should be getting your EAD/AP combo card soon then.
