No payment for I-765 if you sumbit it with I-485

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hey, 

 

So i am confused about the filing fees for the adustment of status (i485) and the work authorization (i765.) I have read in a few comments that you only need to pay the i485 fee if you are submitting a i765 at the same time. I than looked at the government immigration page and says nothing about this....

 

 

Can anyone help?

No need to pay for I-765 and I-131 if you send it with or while having a pending I-485.

 

you can send them together.

Filing Forms I-765 and I-131 with Form I-485

If you are filing Form I-485 (or already filed a Form I-485 on or after July 30, 2007), you do not have to pay an additional fee to also file a Form I-765, Application for Employment Authorization and/or Form I-131, Application for Travel Document for advance parole. You may file these forms together. If you choose not to file Form I-765 and/or Form I-131 with your Form I-485, then you must submit a copy of your I-797C, Notice of Action, receipt as evidence of that you filed a Form I-485.

If you filed your Form I-485 before July 30, 2007, you must pay the fees associated with Forms I-765 and/or I-131 when you file them.

Always read the instructions fully and completely...

 

I-485 instructions, very top of page 16 (https://www.uscis.gov/system/files_force/files/form/i-485instr.pdf😞

"Filing Form I-485 with Forms I-765 and I-131

If you properly file Form I-485 and pay the required fees, you may file Form I-765 and Form I-131 without paying additional fees. You may file these forms together, or if you choose to file Form I-765 or Form I-131 separately, you must also submit a copy of your I-797C, Notice of Action, receipt as evidence that you filed and paid for Form I-485."

 

I-765 instructions, pages 22-23 (https://www.uscis.gov/system/files_force/files/form/i-765instr.pdf😞

Thanks guys! Do we have to apply for a SSN? My husband wants to start work asap, as we are not really doing well on just my income... are there any tricks to make the i765 go faster? I assume they would give approval before the AOS aproval.... this is more confusing than the i129!!!

I-129F* (I-129 is a petition for an employment-based visa)

 

Yes, you can apply for an SSN within the first 76 days of entry on the K-1 visa (90 days - 14 days of legal status required), or once you get an EAD or green card.

You cannot work with just an SSN...until you get a green card, the card will only be valid for work with DHS authorization....which is the EAD.

Only "trick" is to file a complete and accurate I-485 application + I-765, as to avoid an RFE.

If you have a firm job offer, you can request an expedite on the I-765. This can still take months to obtain and is not guaranteed, but is a commonly used expedite path.

Are you using a joint sponsor for the I-864?
