EAD Processing Times - 90 Day Guarantee?

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Our Visa Timeline is below. My husband is an Irish Citizen and I am an American Citizen. I've read somewhere that after 90 days out from getting the I767C and we haven't heard back, we can call and request they start working on it ASAP -- is that true? Our case has been sent to the National Benefits Center I believe. We are very anxious to get the EAD so that my husband can start working ASAP. I appreciate any and all input for others in a similar situation -- I feel like I'm unsure how to correctly read the forms or know definitively where we are in our case. Does receiving these notices of action indicate that everything is filed correctly and that we're on track? Has my husband's status changed now to "pending" meaning he is in the country legally at this point? thanks for any feedback :)

 

4.29.19: Concurrent I-130, I-485, I-765 & I-131 send to USCIS office
4.30.19: Applications received at USCIS lockbox in Chicago
5.7.19: Checks Cashed
5.10.19: Received three I-797C notifications for I-130, I-485 & I-765 respectively

Nothing is guaranteed, timelines are merely guidance or averages. A couple years ago timelines for EAD/AP was about 90 days, but recently in last year it's been 4-5 months, but some people get it sooner also. You can call sure but won't push them to hurry up. If he were to have a legit job offer in writing you could submit that and try for an expedite, but still could take a month even for that.

 

As long as the I-485 is pending he is in legal "limbo" basically. He is authorized to stay but not a permanent resident yet.

Nah, the only response you'll get is "We're still processing your case, you need to wait". It's standard and no they won't hurry up because you call them.

 

It'll take about 4-6 months for him to get his EAD.

4 to 6 months is as good a guess as any, saw one the other day that took 8.

Expect six month.  Be prepared for shorter or longer.  It's a black hole.  Get used to it.
