ALREADY HAVE EAD (I-765) BUT NEED TO APPLY FOR I-131

10 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I'm in the process of submitting my AOS through spouse, we just got married recently. I already have EAD card through pending asylum case that my parents submitted a while back and it doesn't have validation to reenter the US. If I want to apply for I-131 advance parole so I can travel outside the US and come back, do I need to reapply for I-765? 

 

Thank you!

You don't, but if you leave the US you abandon your asylum claim, so you cannot work when you come back. If you apply for a combo card, you switch from working on your asylum EAD to working on your AOS EAD. These cards are in different categories, and are not interchangeable.

 

The application for both I-131 and I-765 is free for you assuming you have your NOA1 from I-485.

So do you advise for me to first apply for I-486 and reapply for I-765, then wait for NOA1 before applying for I-131?

Yes, (c)(9) as a new card (not a renewal) for an EAD based on a pending I-485.

 

Are you planning to return to the country of your previous home?

Yes, I'm planning on going on vacation to my birth country and also vacation to Greece.

Was the asylum claim based on a credible fear from violence or persecution in your home country?

 

Edit:  If so, you may want to seek a professional opinion with an immigration attorney that deals with asylum cases (presumably you already have one?). It can impact any your current status and/or any future benefits.
