  1. Hi there, I am about to travel by plane within the us. I booked the ticket with my new last name and was planning on using my drivers license as proof of identity. However, I had to learn that my temporary drivers license is not an acceptable document for TSA. It is temporary because I am still in the process of obtaining my GC. I have my EAD card that expires in a few days. I already got the receipt notice from USCIS for automatic extension (180 days). Will I be able to travel within the US/go through TSA on my EAD card along with the receipt notice? I do have a german passport but with my maiden name. I don't think I can use this. I am flying Southwest and they don't change names on the ticket 😕
  2. Thank you! I sent everything off on Saturday. So, as soon as I will get the receipt notification the EAD will be automatically renewed? Do you know if I will be able to extend my drivers lisence with this? Because that expires with the date of my current EAD card.
  3. And that is all I have to send in? No need for passport-style pictures or copies of marriage cert, passport, birth cert, I-94, etc? And am I filing under category c9? And I can send in both, EAD and AP renewal at the same time? I called USCIS today and they told me to apply for that 60 days before my combo card expires. I did not know that I would have to file for this since I had my interview three months ago and I was kind of expecting my GC soon. So I am filing for this renewal a little over 30 days prior expiration. Does this have any effect on my pending AOS? And, will a renewal be approved quicker? Just worried about my job.
  4. Thank you! Does that mean that I have to resend the I-765 form with the copy of the receipt for the I-485?
  5. Hello there, Three months ago I had the interview for my green card. So far my status did not update. My EAD card is expiring in November. I am not sure if I should request an extension for my EAD card or request an expedition for my AOS?! Also, with the expiration of my EAD card, my drivers licence will expire too since its a temporary one.
  6. Good morning all, I recently had my interview but my status hasn't changed yet. I do have the EAD/AP combo card and will be traveling outside the country next week. Other than the combo card, marriage certificate and passport I was wondering if I need an ESTA as well? Or will it be fine without ESTA?
  7. Hello there, I received my EAD card late last year and ever since I am on the job hunt with semi success. I was wondering how to explain the gap due to waiting on the EAD card and how to put in on my resume. In the meantime I was volunteering at an animal shelter which I would like to put down as well. Any ideas/experiences on that topic?
  8. No idea. I was going through the online application process and I had to choose whether I'm a us citizen or work permit holder. Me clicking work permit always results in me not being able to submit the application 🤷🏻‍♀️ oh well!
  9. That's the exact reason why I could not apply there. It was a procurement position with security clearance. But also they had positions where no clearance is needed and I still couldn't apply.
  10. I'm crossing my fingers for you! I interviewed at a temp work office but they havent been able to place me with a firm yet 😒 I just have the feeling that many companies are hesitant because I haven't had a US job yet and they cant verify my references from germany. And also there are many jobs that require you to be a US citizen. Which sucks, because I would have loved to work there.
  11. Hallo an alle 🖐️ Habe die Gruppe gerade erst entdeckt und dachte mir ich sag auch mal Hallo... Gluecklicherweise habe ich den K1 Prozess hinter mir. Hat von absenden des Antrages bis Einreise in die USA knapp 10 Monate gedauert. Und momentan sind wir im naechsten Prozess der elend langen Warterei! Letztes Jahr im Juni habe ich den Antrag fuer Adjustment of Status / Employment Authorization & Advanced Parole abgeschickt. Im Juli hatte ich dann mein Biometrics Termin. Ende November habe ich endlich meine EAD/AP Card erhalten und warte seitdem auf einen Termin zum Interview (seit Juli 2018 🤯)!!! Fuer solche lange Wartezeiten brauch man starke Nerven. Umso schoener das es solche Gruppen und Foren wie diese hier gibt!
  12. This is very interesting! Thanks for the heads up. If something like that will happen again I know what to say 👍🏻
  13. I had one hiring manager questioning my legal status which got me upset. I tried to be clear about it but as soon as they heard EAD bla bla they weren't interested like that anymore 😳
  14. I know right?! I feel like the whole application process in germany is waaaaay easier than it is over here! You have to go through phone interviews, then a first and second in-person interview... jeez! And everything just takes so long! Crossing my fingers that you'll succeed soon!
  15. I just cant wait to get done and over with this haha! I am so happy for you and your job situation, and I totally agree with you on the networking side. I do lack there lol! I've been to a couple of interviews and just wishing for the best
