QUESTION - EAD - Employment Authorization

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

When a person applies for the Adjustment of Status 2019

Why USCIS sends a CARD EAD to some people ... BUT other people are NOT and sent to an interview without CARD EAD.

Some people get the Green Card Interview FIRST, and they NEVER receive the CARD EAD even applying for it.

Other people get the EAD Card First than the interview.


What is the difference?

 

My case is in this USCIS office: (MSC **********)

USCIS Office Address:

National Benefits Center

P.O. Box 648003

Lee`s Summit, MO 64002

 

I am waiting for a response from USCIS to be able to work since MAY 2019

Since interviews are done at local field offices,  some are less busy than others and the i485 completes.  It's location,  location,  location 


YMMV

If you have your AOS interview and are approved for your Green Card before you receive your EAD/AP, then your EAD/AP applications are canceled (because the GC confers these benefits on you anyways).  

 

If you receive your EAD/AP before your AOS interview, then you continue waiting for your AOS interview, have it, and subsequently get your GC.  

 

The vast majority of May 2019 applicants are still waiting for EAD/AP and GC interviews.  The processing time for EAD/AP until was 6-8 months until yesterday, when it was randomly scaled all the way back to 2.5-5 months (putting beginning of March able to submit an inquiry).  Follow that date as it moves, and if you don't have your EAD/AP prior to when the inquiry date passes your NOA1 date, submit one.  

 

You can also check how long it might take to get your interview based on your field office.

The EAD card is a temporary card provided to allow someone to work while they wait on the processing of the green card. Once the green card is received, the EAD is no longer needed. So if you have an interview before you receive the EAD, then it is no longer needed. A decision will be made about your greencard and it will give you the ability to work with out the need of an EAD (which is more temporary).
