  2. Hello my friends...

When I Initially fill my case, only did: I485. I765 and I130 I didnt file advance parole, I just tough It wasn't necesary, but at this time I really dont know how long will take the proccess and may be need advance parole to travel to my country. my question is: Can I subbmit the renewal of my EAD and submit the ADVANCE PAROLE form as well? how is the proccess to Renew the EAD? if you have some similar experiences please share it with me. thank you so much guys! down here you all can see my timeline. I fill my case in Houston.
  3. Hello everyone! We have sent our documents last friday and ETA to USCIS will be on February 2. 😁
  4. Alright folks, brand new month right here, you all have made to the AOS phase. Congrats and happy new life together. This thread will be for AOS discussions for those who sent their AOS package in August 2018..... Good luck everyone and couple things, EAD/AP taking around 4 to 6 months Expedite Criteria : https://www.uscis.gov/forms/expedite-criteria AOS Checklist: http://www.visajourney.com/content/k1k3aos USCIS Processing Times Page: https://egov.uscis.gov/processing-times/ USCIS Inquiry about your case: https://egov.uscis.gov/e-request/displayONPTForm.do?entryPoint=init&sroPageType=onpt Enjoy
  5. Hi! We will be filing for my AOS shortly, and since tomorrow marks the start of a new month I thought it would be appropriate to start a new thread for all June filers adjusting from K1 visas. If you're filing soon or if you think you'll file within the next few weeks, please join
  6. Hi everyone, I have been searching through this forum and did not find any topics that discussed EAD Expedite cases where USCIS has requested Proof. Share your experience and timeline here so we can get a better idea about how long it takes and what is the success rate. You can track mine in my signature. I requested EAD expedite review under Severe Financial Loss and I provided a letter from my employer to prove it. It has been 9 days since I faxed my letter and no change so far...
  7. Hi: I know I have read this somewhere, but couldn't find it this time... What is the difference between: https://egov.uscis.gov/casestatus/landing.do (should i create a login for this website too?) https://myaccount.uscis.dhs.gov/ (I already have a login for this website and have added my AOS, EAD and AP MSC... receipts to this one) Thanks ya'll
  8. Hello Guys, We live in Maryland and did concurrent filing of petition, AOS, and EAD, adjustment from B2, see my signature for my timeline. Just wanted to check if there are any filers from the DMV area with Baltimore as their local office, so that we can help each ther with processing times, medical visits, walk in biometrics, interviews etc.. After looking at the processing times I decided to also send an application for AP, I sent it last week, so I am now waiting for this NOA1 and hoping for any update for my EAD soon. God bless all and good luck!
  9. Hi There, I just sent in my package today and it should be received in the month of February so i decided to start a thread for February Filers! Good Luck Everyone and keep us posted! Arrived in USA (Tourist visa December 20th,2016) Married - September 12th, 2017 Filed (I-130, I-130A, I-131, I-485, I-765, I-864)
  10. Hi all! I filed my AOS papers December 21st but have yet to receive my NOA1 so that makes me a January filer. So all January AOS filers can join here and we can chat and help each other through this process. HUGS and Happy New Year to all. May 2018 be the best year for us all now that we are with our loved ones!
  11. Hello. Will I be able to get a replacement Social Security Card because the first one was lost if I walk in the social security office and show my EAD? EAD was issued on category 09 based on pending I-485A? (Still pending). I am also assuming the new card will not have 'NOT VALID FOR EMPLOYMENT' label on it.
  12. Hi all, I am waiting for the EAD for 206 days now. I got a job offer and contacted the congressman for help. The person from the congressman's office told me to send her the Privacy Release Form and the Job Offer Letter (with a starting date). I sent her all the documents two weeks ago. She emails me every week saying that she is following up with USCIS but no updates at all. The only good news I heard from her is that she received a confirmation that the request was received and undergoing processing. Now, after reading some posts, I don't know if I did the expedited the right way (calling USCIS, request expedited based on financial loss and fax them the Job offer letter). I'm hoping that the congressman's office faxed USCIS the job offer letter and made the request on my behalf. Do you guys have any recommendations for me? Should I just wait? Should I contact the Ombudsman? Or call USCIS and request expedited myself? My start date on this job is August 6th. I know I still have a month but I'm really worried I'm gonna loose this job because I don't have the EAD. This is my dream job in the company I always wanted to work for. Thanks in advance
  13. I'm sharing my personal AOS experience of trying this approach (without a lawyer). If you see my timeline, I'm in the very early stages of the AOS process. I'll provide future updates of my AOS progress. As you can read for yourself in this recent cheat sheet for immigration lawyers, two different circuit courts have found that when USCIS grants TPS it counts as an “admission” for purposes of AOS. The two cases are Flores v. USCIS, 718 F.3d 548 (6th Cir. 2013) and Ramirez v. Brown, 852 F.3d 954 (9th Cir. 2017). But you can only use this approach if you reside in the Sixth Circuit (Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio, and Tennessee) or the Ninth Circuit (Alaska, Arizona, California, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, Oregon, and Washington (state)). Regular AOS applicants usually submit a copy of their I-94 as proof of admission, but I provided a copy of the 20 page Ramirez v. Brown decision (because I reside in the Ninth Circuit). I concurrently filed the I-130 (by my USC 21 year old son), AOS, EAD, and AP. I'll post as replies below my cover letters for each application (without personal info). Feel free to ask any questions if you are in the same situation.

    EAD, AP and AOS

    Hi: a little unrelated to your guys process, but i like to give you guys a reminder. After you do POE, get SS# first and then do not wait for EAD, AP and AOS. We just got our EAD approved after 136 days!!! In most States, you will not be able to get DL w/o EAD.
  15. Hey everyone, I’m dealing with the I-693 and had some doubts and was hoping for some clarifications. (I understand some of these questions would be better answered by a civil surgeon, but I am really just trying to get ahead and see what the options are now, so all the help is really appreciated) - The USCIS site points out to the CDC for the required immunization. On the CDC site we can find a pdf with age vaccination requirements (https://www.cdc.gov/immigrantrefugeehealth/pdf/Vaccine-Requirements-According-to-Applicant-Age.pdf). My country’s vaccination bulletin does not have all the CDC required vaccines. Now this is where it gets confusing for me. Certain vaccinations requirements, like Polio and Pneumococcal have an age group. Does this mean I should have taken them when I was kid (which I think I didn’t, at least it’s not pointed in the bulletin) and because I didn't I need to take them now? Or, do I only need to take the vaccines for my indicated age group regardless what I have taken or not? Sorry if this is obvious but my brain decided it was ambiguous and is having a melt down trying to figure this out. - Also, does anyone have any tips on any civil surgeons for South of Florida physical exams + vaccination? I’ve gone through some of the USCIS Dr’s and the package prices have been around $500 for exams + $1500 for vaccines (and that’s not even counting all of them). Am I being ripped off? - Further, has anyone have had any success using their insurance card (my wife has me on Florida Blue Shield) for any part of the exam / vaccination process? Any success of getting required immunizations through local department of health services? Since I am not a citizen is this even an option for me? - Finally, if I understand correctly I can file my AoS package without the I-693. Anyone has insight if doing that and waiting for the request for evidence is the smart way to go? What is the time frame to provide the I-693 once I get said request. Also, could the EAD process be halted due to not providing the I-693? A lot of questions but we appreciate all the help!
  16. Hello. I had lost my original Social Security Card so I applied for a replacement card. My original card had my middle name on it which is my father's first name but I always used my first and last name everywhere here in USA. My Birth Certificate as well as EAD and AOS application has my first/last name. I requested that my middle name be removed in my replacement card and the officer at SSA went ahead did just that and I asked to confirm that this would not be considered a name change right? She said no. I just wanted to make sure. I did some research on SSC rules and found out that the only names that matter for legal purpose are first/last name not middle. Would this raise any concerns with my pending AOS application and/or at the interview? I also noticed that my mother's and father's first name was misspelled in their system. Officer went ahead and corrected that as well. Would this raise any concerns with my pending AOS application and/or at the interview? I also accidently put my mother's married last name on the Social Security application. I did inform the officer and they said that would be no problem even though I had already signed up the application. I just wanted to make sure. Would this raise any concerns with my pending AOS application and/or at the interview? I checked the box 'Legal Alien Allowed to Work' box in the SS-5 form. I think this is correct right?
  17. Hello. Do I need to print/fill out the Social Security replacement card application before I go to the Social Security Administration office or Do I need to fill one out there in person? This is for a lost SS card. I have a valid EAD based on category 09. Is showing the EAD enough to get a replacement SS card or do I need to also show my Birth Certificate? My EAD is valid from 8/8/18 - 8/17/19. Which day will I be eligible to renew if there is no decision on my AOS pending application at that time? Do I renew 6 months before expiration date and is the EAD extended for 6 months from expiration date?
  18. I have an approved I-130 (USC Mother petitioner, Beneficiary Son Unmarried 21+ years, PD: 6/9/11, Approved on 5/20/14). I also have a pending I-130 (USC Brother petitioner, PD: 6/9/11). 10/4/17 RD: I-485 Supplement A and I-765. 11/6/17 Biometrics completed. 4/30/'18: RFIE for Birth Certificate with English Translation. 7/19/18: RFIE response received. What are the chances I will receive another RFIE/RFE for a different document again? 7/31/18: Case is ready to be scheduled for interview. When should I expect to get a letter for Interview in the mail? Does this mean my back ground check was cleared? I-693 Medical was done in June of 2017 and it was been over a year so I am assuming I will have to re-do the Medical exam again and pay full fees? Do I have also have to re-do the TB skin test? I-765: Both Case Tracker still says 10/4/17 Case was received and I still not received my EAD. Any advice? Does the petitioner have to be present at the interview; Does the petitioner have to be alive at least till the day of interview for the application to process further? What are the must bring documents to the interview? Does the passport have to valid or can it be expired? What are the questions generally asked at the interview? Do they ask every single question from the AOS application or is it random?

  20. Hi fellow V journeyers, Just received my EAD & AP Combo card in the mail. THRILLED. Was v excited at prospect of getting a SSN and beginning to work soon. However there is no SSN on the card ( there is a USCIS# and instructions that employers would accept it as a List A Doc when completing Form 1-9 Employment Eligibility) Is there another step/process I need to go through to get SSN ? Much appreciated Thanks in advance Andrea
  21. My EAD card is due to expire at the end of February and I am currently still awaiting my interview for my adjustment of status. - When do I need to submit my application to renew my EAD as I have a feeling my I-145 isn’t going to be approved before it expires? - How much is the fee to renew? And do I use the same form to renew my ELD as I did to apply for it? (I-175 I think?) thanks in advance!

    SSN card with EAD

    Hello, for those who received EAD sent to their attorneys office. Did your SSN Card come also to your attorney’s office? Thank you
  23. Hi friends, Today, I got my I-765 and I-131 approval notice. But when I bring it out from the mail box, I found out both of them already been opened! I have no idea who did this. I check the envelopes, I-765 has 2 pages NOA in it and I-131 has 1 page NOA in it. Here come the questions : 1. Is there any other document come with I-765 or I-131 NOA in the same envelope? Does I-765 NOA come with Social Security Card in the same envelope? 2. NOA has sensitive information like A-number and my full name on it, should I call USCIS to notify them the envelope has been open by somebody else? Thanks!
  24. Hi, I have found mixed information on various sites so Creating this forum to discuss the processing times and case movements for Advance Parole and EAD when filing for adjustment of status. Does USCIS still hold that '90 days processing' for EAD/AP ? or has it increased over the last few months? Anyone has received the AP in less than 90 days here? Its been more than 70 days for me today and I have started worrying a little. (Travel issues, and I need a job ) Many people in these forums abandon their profiles when they get their final cards or dont update it regularly so I dont expect those timelines to be very accurate. Please reply if the you adjusted status and filed EAD/AP and how did your processing go? Thanks all and all the best!
  25. Hi Guys, I recently got my K1 approved and I intend to move to the US on March 1st. 2018. I know that once I get married, I should also file for EAD (work permit) in order to legally work. My situation is a bit unique, and I'm seeking your advice- My current employer in my home country wants me to keep working for him continuously , remotely, even after my move to the US. I also read that it takes a few months to get a permit (EAD) and even longer for the green card. Is it legal/illegal to work remotely for a foreign country ,getting foreign salary to a foreign bank account, while waiting for my EAD? (My question is from an immigration standpoint and not tax related) Google is full of divided and unclear answers, and I want to know if there a "clear-cut" law in this case (like a USCIS caveat). Thanks, Dave
