Expedite EAD - Job "offer" question

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

So I have been working on my OPT EAD that will expire 2/20. My AOS package have been sent in and today 1/8 I had my biometrics appointment. 

I would like to expedite the EAD if possible because it will be extremely tight on money if my husband have to pay literally everything, and I will go insane if I can't work until May again...

 

I have a full time job now where I want to keep working. I have also applied for a promotion but those interviews haven't started yet.

As far as expediting with a job "offer", since I technically already have the job but would need to get back to it ASAP. What kind of evidence would I need to provide?

 

Should the letter be from HR or my store manager, or area manager? Should it say that they need me back asap or what kind of details is goo in the letter?

 

If I get the promotion, could that be an existential to expedite because they need me in the position asap?

 

The company I work for is Nationwide and the HR office is located in MA but I'm working at one our our stores in MN. 

 

Any advice is appreciated. I want to have everything ready when I request expedite. 

 

Also, can I drop of evidence after theits requested at the local field office? If so, can I just go there or do I need info pass appointment? Or can I only fax it? 

 

Thanks

First, take the bio-app to the office and get it done, today. Don't wait until the scheduled day.

 

After this, ask your company to issue the letter saying they need the work permit to legally keep you, otherwise you will be terminated from the job. And call the USCIS to put in a request for expedition.

Nothing is guaranteed but at least the request for expedition will trigger the review of your package. If there's any RFE, it will be sent out soon instead of receiving it 4 months down the line.

Promotion might not help you, the better will to navigate this EAD elephant it to showcase that you would loose your job on 2/20 and get into a financial trouble after that. Also you have to reach out to your congressman/senator for expedite/follow-ups with USCIS

Go through the office of your congressman or senator. USCIS had denied my expedite request and told me that I will have to wait for a month before I can apply for another expedite request. The congressman's office called, and not only did they accept the expedite application after a couple of days of the original decision, but also issued me an EAD within 4 days or so of receiving the expedite request from the congressman's office.
