  1. Good afternoon, I just wanted to fill you guys in on my experience renewing my MO drivers license today. I filed for EAD/AP/AOS early November and it's still pending. I took my US MO Drivers test in November using my I-94, Passport and K-1 Visa page but my license was only valid for the length of the I-94 document. Of course this expired a little while ago, and I have been unable to drive. So my wife emailed the DMV requesting information as to whether or not we'd be able to renew my license for the time being. There is very little information out there in this. I have included the e-mail below. I walked into the DMV today, and brought the following documents with me: Marriage Certificate Passport AOS Receipt (With stamped biometrics) EAD Receipt (The DMV scanned this document) Utility Bill (Something with my name on it tying me to the address I live) It took her a few tries of various numbers on the EAD receipt but it was approved for renewal of my DL. The process took about 10 minutes once I was at the desk. So those of you wondering about drivers licenses, e-mail the DMV and ask about your state's laws regarding it. Remember: Not all DMV staff are competent. I hope this helps someone out there!
  2. Disgusting. Considering all of the vetting and waiting involved in the K-1 and other visas, these processing times for Employment Authorization Document are pure insanity.
  3. So my employment authorization document expires at the end of September so I need to file for renewal. I am currently within the processing time for my green card and have been waiting a year already. I am extremely confused about the fees I have to pay to renew my EAD card. Can somebody please help me?!
  4. Hi everyone! I just wanted to see who else filed their AOS/EAD/AP packet in January 2018. I filed the first week of January and still havent received any notices besides the NOAs. Has anyone gotten their papers approved? Im going crazy. Im filing from Los Angeles. THANKS!
  5. Hello there! I filled my Work Authorizarion request last Sep 19, 2017. And my EAD approval notice was Nov 24, 2017. I was advised before by Phoenix USCIS that Work Authorization Card are being processed within 90 days. Its been 154 days since my application and I already made two (2) follow-ups, Jan & Feb 2018 respectively yet up to this very moment I don't have my EAD Card. Is the 90 days processing time starts from the date of approval or from the date of receipt of the application request?
  6. Hi, I have done a lot of research, but I haven't found an actual answer. I got married in August 2017 and my marriage license did not specify whether I wanted to change my name or not. I adjusted my status with my maiden name, thinking I'd be able to change my name later (apparently I was wrong). It did seem very wrong to me to complete all the forms and paperwork of my AOS with a name that wasn't approved by anyone or had any actual documentation -I later learnt that a marriage license is enough proof to go ahead and complete all your forms with your new name (in this case, taking my husband's last name). I received my EAD three weeks ago and it has my maiden name on it (which was expected). Yesterday I went to the SSN and they asked me whether I wanted to take my husband's last name, I asked if it was recommended and they said, the recommendation was that ALL my documents matched (SSN, EAD Card, DL) with the exact same name. So I just went ahead and had my maiden name again. Now my EAD and my SSN are all with my maiden name. Now I am really upset about the opportunity to change my name and take my husband's last name. HOW, WHEN, WHERE? Has someone else been through this? I wish there was more information on the name change in the USCIS forms. Thank you so much.
  7. Hello My name is Kim^^ from South Korea. If you don't have time, you can skip until the Underlined page So, I came to USA for studying in college, graduated 2015 and tried to join US Army thru the Mavni program. I swear in for the Army, and got the MOS as 15T. I thought i will ship out Dec of 2015, but it didn't work out pretty well. I still don't know what is the reason; my background checking takes forever... So, they discharged me on June of 2017.... because background check never come back(as no nor yes) Just unfinished background checking.... Luckily just before they discharged me, they offer me to be on Deferred Action to be legal status to be in America. Because my visa expired date was coming. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I applied DA Jan.2017 Got approved April 25th Apply EAD(with fee waiver form...cuz i had no income+ I couldn't make income) On Jun Got rejected for incorrect amount fee or not enough evidence on July reapplied with the Fee(i had to borrow money) on Sep 14th Rejected for incorrect amount fee(which was weird cuz 495$ was correct fee) I got this one Sep 28th And I got the Second Notice that my fee waiver got approved very next day....(#######????!!!!) 29th And i got the EAD on Oct 30th Whole process to get EAD took about 4 month for me If it did go well, maybe 3month.... I just wanna share my case, because i only can find bad facts on the internet (ex, EAD took over 6 month to get it, after biometirc they took 18 weeks. etc) Because of these bad facts, i was so nervous... this is my story so far....
  8. Via USCIS. Read the original here. No photos yet of how the new GC's or EAD cards will look. I wonder if this means the cost will go up..
