Hi!

 

I really want to have SSN here. I didn't know I could get SSN with I-94 (I was stupid :crying: . It's already expired).

I found information that I can receive SSN if I have the EAD.

 

USCIS received my Form I-764(Application for Employment Authorization) on May 9, 2019.

Is there anyone who knows when I'll be able to receive it?

 

thank you :)

I-765*

 

Know? Not possible. It could be tomorrow or a year from now or never.

The average is around 4-7 months right now.

You asked for a definitive. I stated there is none.

It was not negative. Yeah, it could be denied. But your AOS could be approved before the EAD, so the EAD will never get approved as it's superceeded by the green card. It happens more often than one thinks (with quick local field offices).

Take your time reading across the forum here, you'll see why it can be 4-7 months.

 

Each processing centers get slammed with packages that needed to be reviewed and filled out daily including double checking. In this time frame, this is the best time for you to find out more what are your rights during your stay and what are your best protection and defenses to study up on so you don't accidentally get yourself into the trouble. Here is a starter as fip&jim sent to me a while back... thing you should carry:

Quote

Here's a list of most recent the documentation for your fiance to carry with him at various stages:

 

  • Before marriage - passport with valid I-94
  • After marriage - copy of marriage certificate and passport with valid I-94
  • After filing for AOS - copy of marriage certificate, passport and copy of cover letter for filing for AOS/EAD/AP
  • After filing for AOS has been received by USCIS - copy of marriage certificate, passport and copy of NOA1 (I-797) for AOS
  • If EAD/AP is issued before green card - copy of marriage certificate, passport and EAD/AP
  • After conditional green card is received - just green card (the law. Can be fined and/or arrested for not carrying it)

Removal of Conditions stage (ROC)(after conditional green card expires and waiting for 10 year green card to be issued). File 90 days before conditional green card expires to        comply with the law and preserve permanent resident status:

  • After filing for ROC - conditional green card and cover letter for ROC
  • After filing for ROC has been received by USCIS - conditional green card and NOA1 (I-797C) for ROC
  • After 10 year green card is received - green card (the law)

There is information on the ACLU website (American Civil Liberties Union) and the National Immigration Law Center about how to deal with various scenarios that could happen with the police or ICE. 

I also found the link for that here ---> https://www.aclu.org/know-your-rights/immigrants-rights/

https://www.aclu.org/know-your-rights/stopped-by-police/#ive-been-stopped-by-the-police-in-public

 

Hopefully this will help you spend some time reviewing some things. Not trying to go off topic but I kind of did, oops.

Interesting, I may have been outdated for a bit. Does the 2.5 to 5 month part goes for all centers or just the NBC (National Benefit Center?)

 

JOOK, did you get your NOA1 yet? I think you did according to your first post... but your timeline is empty on your profile.

JOOK, also do take a look at this while you're waiting for your EAD.

 

 

It's a very long thread but take your time reading first before asking question in the thread. If you have question though, write it down then keep reading until you found your answer in that or ask it if it wasn't answered. This may be informative for you too.
