NO EAD YET (GREEN CARD MARRIAGE)

Background: AOS adjustment through marriage from F1 status | Currently residing in California

 

Hi guys,

 

I haven't received my EAD card yet and I'm starting to worry. It's been almost 4 months now. Here's my timeline so far:

 

05/09/2019: USCIS RECEIVED MY FILE

05/18/2019: NOTICES IN MAIL

05/24/2019: BIOMETRICS LETTERS

06/07/2019: BIOMETRICS DONE

 

My USCIS status for FORM I-765 says: "...we completed our review of your fingerprints and are working on your form I-765... We will let you know if we make any decision or need anything from you..."

 

Is it normal?

 

Thanks.

A whole year just to get the work permit?!

Yes. If you get it in 6 months or less (and it does happen) count yourself very lucky as that would be an exception and not the norm. That is current processing time. If you have a job offer or something, maybe try to expedite

I'd argue the average is around 4-7 months, but I agree that you are well within normal timeframes still. Some people take longer than average.

I agree that if it takes less than 6 months, consider yourself lucky.
