  1. Woohoo! Interview has been scheduled! Excited to receive the letter and find out when/where our appointment is
  2. I called it in with a Tier 1 representative first and made sure to get a confirmation number. Then I waited to receive an email asking for evidence, but I never did, so I called up the immigration specialist at my local congressman's office (just called the number I found online). That person helped me by inquiring independently about my case, and then asked me to send along some evidence to support. I emailed him with 13 attachments (cover letter, a bunch of bills, job offer letters, anything I thought might help). I only had a few gigs lined up, but I explained the situation and the people hiring me made sure to say they looked forward to working with me again going into next season. Not sure what you do for a living, but as a performer we have a pretty small community with a lot of people from different countries, so people are friendly and helpful with this kind of stuff. Good luck!
  3. I just successfully expedited my EAD/AP based on multiple job offers as a freelance classical musician (self-employed/"independent contractor"), so you should definitely go for it! I had multiple offers of employment, including one project starting on July 6th. The letters from my potential employers stated that they are keen to work with me, and my cover letter stressed the importance of being able to accept these offers to establish a good reputation in my field. I also included separate evidence showing that I needed my AP to go back and work in Canada in August, and to attend my own wedding celebration. I sent various bills to show the financial strain that the long wait has been putting on us. I'm not sure which evidence "worked," but I wrote a detailed cover letter, and it probably also helped that I had already been waiting over 6 months. Good luck!
  4. My card is arriving today, exactly one week after "new card is being produced."
  5. Another D.C. filer here! My EAD is arriving in the mail today, 3 weeks after I requested an expedite due to severe financial loss. My tip for not losing your mind is to ignore the VJ estimate. Mine said end of April/early May, and I spent the whole of May feeling depressed every day it didn't arrive. If you have a valid reason to expedite and a job offer, check out the many threads about expediting, otherwise try to enjoy the summer together and stay cool! I hope some D.C. filers start getting interviews soon...
  6. All EAD applications that are filed with an AOS from a K-1 visa are processed at the NBC , which is in Lee Summit, Missouri. Your application number probably starts with MSC because it used to be called the Missouri Service Center. Your AOS will be sent to your local office when it's ready to be scheduled for an interview. Good luck with the wait!
  7. You should definitely resubmit everything! Have you got the congressman's office to help? If you have the same as mine (I live in Rosslyn) then PM me for the email of the congressman's office immigration guy who helped me.
  8. May 31st - requested EAD+AP expedite over the phone June 3rd - email saying they cannot expedite because I didn't send evidence (which they never asked for) June 10th - congressman's office requested expedite directly and sent 13 pieces of evidence for me (cover letter, bills, job offer letters) June 12th - received email through congressman's office saying "this case will be routed for expedite" June 17th - "New Card is being Produced" for EAD case number Good luck!
  9. NEW CARD IS BEING PRODUCED!!!!! EAD approved after 189 days of waiting, expedited with the help of congressman's office over the past few weeks. I'll be able to start my job on July 6th and we'll be able to attend our wedding celebration in Canada this August. No words to describe the relief...I was really starting to lose my mind! Sending good vibes for everyone else still waiting ❤️

  11. Day 189! Have officially been waiting for my AOS/AP/EAD as long as we waited for the I-129 approval last year 😂
  12. Ok good to know. I just hope they don't schedule it in August because I'm planning on being home in Canada for the whole month to work and to prepare for our wedding celebration on the 25th...if I get my damn EAD/AP in time that is! Would be ironic if I had to reschedule the interview 😕
  13. Oh boy. I'm starting to think nobody at any stage of this process knows anything about how it all works. I submitted an expedite request over the phone with a tier 1 on May 31st, and got an email a couple hours later saying: "We received your request to expedite the decision on your application. Your case is currently under review. You will receive a decision or notice of further action shortly. " I got no request for evidence, so after a week of waiting I contacted my congressman's office, where the immigration specialist was very friendly and helpful. He asked me to email him my evidence for the request, and I sent it on Monday. Yesterday, he forwarded me an email that he received which reads: "Thank you for your inquiry regarding this constituent’s immigration matter. This case will be routed for expedited processing. Once this case is reviewed, your constituent will receive a decision or notice of further action." I emailed him back asking whether that meant my expedite was approved, and if it means my case is now in the pile to be adjudicated, and he said yes! Cue me feeling very positive! So this morning, seeing that there was no update on the website, I managed to speak to a Tier 2 representative, who told me that actually they have 60 days to review my evidence, and that she doesn't see any record of my evidence or the congressman's office submitting a request. Again I say, oh boy. I see from this thread that everyone has a different experience with this process...any advice/similar experience to me/positivity that you could share would be great! I have a job starting July 6th. p.s. I've already been waiting over 6 months... ❤️
  14. Following! Mine has been ready to be scheduled since March 20th.
  15. Yeah I'm currently trying to have my EAD/AP expedited with the help of our congressman's office. Hoping it'll go through in time for a big job opportunity starting at the beginning of July...
