Expedite EAD due to deployment

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi :) has anyone had experience of getting succesful expedite EAD (AoS)? I will have my K1 soon, going to US in August but we've just found out that my fiancé is deploying in October.

 

What are you experience with expediting due to this? I read that they usually don't do it as I can attend the interview by myself, which is fine with me but my main focus is on EAD as I need it for my driving license (Texas). With my fiancé gone and without license I have no way to get around :(

 

Thank you for any advise.

I'm not sure about your question, but do you have a driver's license in your home country? In Kansas my insurance covered my husband driving in the US on an unexpired international license for one year. If not, you might see if you can get one in your remaining time.

I think you can only use your international driving license for like 6 months. 

 

Also dont think they will expedite EAD because of driving license. Since that would be your base, not deployment. You can always try but I'd say small chance.

Thank you. Our international DL is valid for the whole year but even 6 months could be enough for me to get EAD

From what I read you have max 90 days to transfer your license upon becoming a resident of the state, so you could use your international driving permit for 90 days, after that you would need a license. If you are here on a tourist visa, you can use your international permit for as long as your here, say 6 months if they give you that time at POE. But you are arriving on a K1 that is an immigrant Visa, so you would have 90 days. That's not too bad, here in Nevada you only have 30 days to change license and registration after you take residence. The only exception is if you have a address on a military base, here In Nevada they don't make active duty military change their license or registration.
