Applied for AP/EAD renewal while on AOS - but given new Case numbers?

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

In short, currently waiting for green card interview (PD 1/12/2018). My origional EAD/AP card expires 6/13/2019. I was told by USCIS that if I apply for renewal, it will automatically renew for 6 months once you receive a confirmation receipt (i-797).

However, when I received the paperwork from USCIS, it was for a new case number (MSC1990*******). I have many questions about this and now USCIS has changed the way you can call them, its super difficult to get through.

 

  1. Did my origional 765 get extended (Case Status MSC1890******) or is it actually a whole new application
  2. What happens if it is not approved before 6/13/2019 - do I need to stop working?
  3. How do i verify to new exployers that I can work? I have the card, however, I do a summer job when not teaching and they need copies of my EAD card?
  4. Anyone have tips on how I can get on the phone with USCIS?

 

Any help would be much appreciated.

Hi all,

However, when I received the paperwork from USCIS, it was for a new case number (MSC1990*******). I have many questions about this and now USCIS has changed the way you can call them, its super difficult to get through.

 

  1. Did my origional 765 get extended (Case Status MSC1890******) or is it actually a whole new application 

    I would say, since it's a new application (although it's a renewal) you do get a new case number. Did you send the letter you got with your original EAD in the renewal packet?

  2. What happens if it is not approved before 6/13/2019 - do I need to stop working? Not if you applied for the renewal and you get the extension letter.
  3. How do i verify to new exployers that I can work? I have the card, however, I do a summer job when not teaching and they need copies of my EAD card? The extension letter is proof. Also, they can check themselves if you're eligible to work (https://www.e-verify.gov/)
  4. Anyone have tips on how I can get on the phone with USCIS? Just call m, https://www.uscis.gov/about-us/contact-us. I think I usually just keep pressing 0 so that the system gets confused and sends me straight to an employee lol

 

Any help would be much appreciated.

Than I wouldn't worry. You can always double check with USCIS, just to give you a peace of mind, and to make sure everything is correct. But as mentioned before, since you basically applied for a new card (although it's a renewal) it makes sense that you get a new case number.

Ok, Thanks,

I guess I just need that paper verification to show my employer.

Was informed by USCIS that it should be automatic, however you would receive a letter. Small issue, I applied with my origional 765/131 at our old address in NC. We are now in WA. I applied for my renewal with our updated address and received a NOA here in WA.

They also said, its 4.5-6 month wait, so I may be out of luck from June 13 until 4.5-6 months from March 8 (Sep 8).

MY current employer wouldnt have an issue and will most likely keep paying me, however, applying for this secondary position. It may be difficult.
