3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My wife is a USC and I sent my documents today to USCIS,that being said because I have a job offer in August and there is a chance I will not get my EAD by that time,can I apply for OPT EAD while waiting for AOS? Next semester is my last one so I think I can apply for OPT but don't know if I can do it with a pending AOS application.

Contact your university's/college's international student center. While they cannot give legal advice about AOS, they usually give full support on OPT process - they'll tell you if you are OPT/EAD eligible. Current wait time for family based EADs are 5.5 - 7.5 mo, in theory there is a plenty of time before August. However it doesn't hurt to ask your int student center.

My school does not have a problem with what I said.It is USCIS and their policy regarding dual application for EAD that I am concerned/worried about.Next semester I will be eligible for OPT.
