Green card / EAD expedition

10 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,not sure if I'm posting in the right area, find it hard to navigate.

 

I have a few questions. A local senator is assisting me to expedite my case due to financial issues. But he told me if I had an offer letter ( he knows I'm interviewing with some companies at the moment ) and if I were to get an offer letter it would also assist and benefit to speed the process up. I am waiting on EAD, travel document, combo card and green card.

My question is how do I ask when being offered to job that they put in the offer letter I would need my EAD sooner. 

Any tips?

Seems like you are Adjusting   your status from a non resident to resident status .. are you adjusting from a K1 fiancé visa, a tourist visa or a work/student visa. 

Once we know this, your post  can moved to the correct forum

The offer letter doesn't need to ask USCIS to expedite; just having a job offer is what you need.

Yeah but what do I do with the offer letter? Does USCIS contact the job? 

OK, so you're asking your senator for help, and his/her office is receptive, you should just let them handle it.  If you're still interested in the details, here is what happens:

 

1. Someone (you, or your local politician on your behalf) initiates a request for expedition with USCIS, choosing "severe financial loss" as the criterium.  At this point, USCIS receives a brief outline for why you, the applicant, are experiencing financial loss and how having the EAD will help offset the financial loss.

2. USCIS assigns an officer to your request, and the officer reviews the description.  If they are satisfied that you have a point, they will request evidence that receiving an EAD sooner will help you.  At this point, if you don't already have a job offer, and your explanation is, "I want to apply for jobs," it will be denied.  You have to have concrete evidence that you already have a job offer, so you would be able to offset your financial losses if only you had the EAD to begin working.

3. You send the evidence they requested.  This includes your cover letter explaining why you're experiencing financial loss, and a job offer that would therefore help you not experience financial loss.  No, they won't reach out to the company, but why does it matter?  Technically, I suppose they could.

 

If USCIS is satisfied that your ducks are in order, they will expedite your EAD.  If they are not, they will reject your request.

So if I didnt get the help from the senator I could do this alone? I would just mail in my cover letter and job offer letter to where my case is right now which is ( NBC ) or the office I did my fingerprints in?

You would do the exact same process above. Call USCIS, request an expedite, explain why (step 1) and proceed to steps 2 and 3 when prompted. 

 

Most people initiate their own requests, and many also involve the congresspeople and senators at the same time.
