What does this mean for my case?

12 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Our case was denied in Feb 2017, then we filed for motion to reopen/reconsider on Feb 27 2017.

 

Then today I received the message noticed that my case I485 was reopened and it says I765 status is " My new card is being produced" but I485 status only shows "reopen the case"

 

So what does this mean our case for I485 will be approved or what does this I765 card being produced mean?

 

Thank you in advance.

It means your EAD was approved, based on your now-pending I-485 case. Once you receive the EAD card, you'll legally be able to seek employment. It is not a green card, as your I-485 is still pending.

thanks for your reply, but if EAD is approved, would that also mean I485 would be approved too? or is there a case that EAD is approved but not I485? 

 

Thank you

An EAD approval does nothing for the approval of an I-485. If your I-485 is eventually denied, your EAD is no longer valid, as the conditions of your EAD are only valid for as long as you have a pending I-485 case. Your I-485 is NOT approved at this time.

The EAD is only something you use while waiting for your greencard to be approved. So yes, the EAD is in most cases approved way before the actual greencard is, otherwise there would be no point with the EAD.

The above poster is correct.

You can have an EAD simply for having a case processing. Your case doesn't even have to be complete, as you can still receive RFE's for your green card and still get the EAD.  

In this case, your EAD was only approved because they reopened your case, but it has nothing to do with a green card approval, nor will it affect the green card approval if it happens.

How long is the process of approval or the result comes out after EAD?

 

How long do I need to wait to receive the card? 

 

Thank you.

The greencard can take anything between 3 and 12 months, in some cases even longer than a year.

 

You should have the EAD within 30 days from when your status changes to "new card is being produced". The next status is often "card was mailed to me", hopefully it doesn't take more than 2 weeks for you to receive the EAD card after that.

Thank you

Yes there are people who have gotten ead and later on i485 was denied. They are two independent applications and approval of one does not mean the other will be approved. It is only at your interview or after your interview that you will know if your GC has been approved
