[AOS EAD] What's the purpose of the 75-day Service Request?

14 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I have placed a Service Request last Friday (the day after my 75-day mark) and got a response saying that "the case is within our current processing time and sorry for any misunderstanding".

I tried to call them again today and they told me there is nothing they can do until my case has reached its 90-day mark. They said the request they put on 75-day mark is to have someone to review it, and the 90-day one is to have the case assigned.

I thought the Service Request you place on your 75th day is to have someone work on it so you can make sure it's done within the 90days processing time? I mean if people send in their request on their 75th day then according to what she told me the response is gonna be the same for EVERBODY right -the case is within our current processing time, so what is the process of submitting the service request on the 75th day *confused* ???

The "75-day-service-request" is a new thing that VJ made up. There is no point in making a SR until 90 days are over.


AOS for my husband

ROC:
5/23/12: Sent out package
2/06/13: APPROVED!

Your EAD will be approved before the 90 days are over. 99% of cases are. This 75-day bothering them makes no sense and just wastes time. I don't know how this idea got started here, but I didn't use to see it and now I have seen multiple mentions of it.

Thank you so much for your input. I saw on the USCIS website saying 75 days too and that's why i called :/

Do you happen to know if the purpose of the 90days mark is to have the case prioritized or is to have it proceed? if i call again on its 90days mark is it gonna take another month or i can get the card right away at their office?

Here is the link that mentions the 75 days https://www.uscis.gov/forms/tip-sheet-employment-authorization-applications-pending-more-75-days

What you can do is call in for an expedite, wait for an RFE for evidence of financial hardship and submit it per fax (fax number is on the letter)

with a job offer if you have one. That all will take about 3-4 weeks and by then people usually receive the EAD anyway.

We successfully expedited a renewal EAD because of the 1 year expiration and it was approved one day before the old one expired.

Date details in my signature.

You can try to do an infopass to expedite having all evidence and job offer with you but at this point I would just wait.

it's so weird because the status on my AOS application has updated to "ready to schedule an interview" but the status on my AP and EAD remain unchanged. I guess i will call in on the 90th day just to make sure they are working on it lol thanks for your tips!

Some get the GC before they get the EAD (rare) and many received a ready to schedule interview letter and waited for months for the interview

and some received an interview waiver letter after they received a ready for interview letter.

This thread is 2 years old. Things have changed, EAD/AP combo card now can take 5-6 months for many.
You just check the web site for your case updates after your service request.
Expedite it with a job offer if you have one. If not get one.
