  1. 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...
  2. Hi all VJ'ers! I am needing your help again here. I am on the process of filling out the I-485, I-765 and I-131 for my children who are all minors. Just having a dilemma with regards to the Applicant's Signature part. My question are: 1. Should I just sign the applicant's signature part and print name and put mother next to it. 2. Should I still fill out the preparer's Part or just leave it blank. Would really Appreciate your answers on this one. Thank you all.
  3. Hello. I have an upcoming interview for I-485 and I-485A on 2/25/19. Approved I-130 (USC Mother). Family preference FB1, unmarried, son 21+. Mother will also be with me at the interview as well as my Lawyer. Do I bring all originals and 1 color photo copy of each document? List: (They were already submitted to USCIS). I received 1 RFIE for BC with EC (USCIS accepted the document). I-94 Card. Updated I-693. Mother’s Passport (My entry stamp is on it as my own passport did not exist then). My 3 Passports (First 2 are expired). My Birth Certificate with English Translation. I-864 - Joint Sponsor is my USC Brother 100%, 2017 all tax returns and W2 with December and January pay stubs. RD is 10/4/17. Employment letter? My mother had no financial info but we still had to submit it. Brother’s Certificate of Naturalization? His BC? ETA-750 Part A & B with CA DOL receiving my Labor Certification on or before 4/30/01. Biggest issue is that I never received any acknowledgment receipt. It just has the date (on or before 4/30/01) and their staff initials listed on it with job code. Also it states EWI (no idea why). Proof of physical presence on 12/21/00. Initial EAD (C09). Parents Marriage Certificate. Mother’s BC? Her Certificate of Naturalization? Anything else I should bring?

Because we do not have a wedding together, that is not normal to all the couple who apply for adjustment of status and that makes me very worry. Please drop some comments to give me advise . Also, advise me on what will they ask on the interview because we are very worry for the upcoming interview. Thank you and I really appreciate it Jacklyn.
  5. Hello Visa Journey members. This thread is for anyone that has a Priority Date/Receipt Date from the second half of 2017 (July - December 2017) waiting to get their interview scheduled at the Houston Field Office. Please post your PD/RD and your current USCIS online account (both sites and App) status’. Have you received an interview letter and if so, when is your interview date? Please share your interview experience for those that already had their interview, thanks.
  6. 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.
  7. RD Date: 10/4/17 for I-485 and I-765. Biometrics completed on 11/6/17. RFIE/RFE on 4/30/18 on I-485 for Birth Certificate. My lawyer should be submitting a response on Monday (7/9/18) if everything looks OK on my Birth Certificate with English Translation. I wonder if my clock will start over for both applications? No RFIE/RFE on I-765 though. Is it a good idea to submit secondary evidence say Affidavits as well?
  8. 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?
  9. 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?

  11. 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!
  12. Hi, I'm 27 years old Japanese living in MN from May 25th 2017. I came here with fiance, K-1 visa. I got married June 13th. We had our wedding ceremony in October. It was crazy stressful but the day was the best. We are taking things seriously and we were submitting papers ASAP with checking so many times. But so many troubles soooo stressful. The most recent issue is my insurance. I was kicked off because I don't have SSn and my fiance VISA expired and I changed my last name on my old passport. In this country, things are so different from Japan. People are not so kind than Japanese. I miss Japanese kindness and hospitality. Nobody tells what to do. We feel totally lost. I hope I can help others and others can help us here. Living in a different country is so tough. Language, no friends no family, inconvenience.
  13. My EAD expires on 02/06/2019 (was only for 1 year): 1) Should I submit a renewal form I-765 right now? IO told me if I submit it too early they are going to return the application. 2) Do I get the 180 days extention mentioned here (https://www.uscis.gov/working-united-states/automatic-employment-authorization-document-ead-extension) even if I didn't submit for renewal? 3) I never applied for AP, if I apply now will I get the combo card in February 2019? 4) What if I want the AP as soon as possible. Can I ask them to send me AP before February 2019? 5) If they have the capacity to issue my EAD before 02/2019, let's say 12/2018, will they do it? What would that cancel the old EAD? Thank you.
  14. I-485, I-130, I-765 received by USCIS on 6/27, biometrics done on 7/24. Currently no changes on any of the forms. I have a TN that expires 11/21, so in just under 3 months. I was planning to wait until the 90 days are up to expedite, so end of September, but I'm worried about getting an RFE in the meantime and delaying the entire process. Is it worthwhile to apply to expedite my EAD now? The expedite reason is 'severe financial loss to person'. I am currently employed and my USC husband recently started his own business, so I pay the majority of our bills. I can get a letter from my employer stating that they will not be able to continue to employ me after my TN status expires in November, and I can send pay stubs, W-2s, and various copies of bills. I'm guessing that's all I can really provide in this situation. If it helps, I can ask my employer to specify that I am an integral resource to the projects I'm working on and losing me would negatively affect the performance of our company in relation to our contracts with other clients. I don't know if that matters though. Should I wait until the 90 days are up (and possibly even get my EAD in the meantime), or should I go ahead and ask to expedite? Could it hurt?
  15. Hi everyone, I'm here to share with you guys about my story about expedite request is success within 11 months from the day I submit the whole packages of application based on I-485 Adjustment of status. Few things about my situation back ground - I'm used to an international student who came to the states by the F1-student Visa. Fortunately I found a full-time job right after graduation and working under OPT for a year. Then I got married with a US citizen and apply for adjustment of status I-485. My working permit at that time will be expired in 07/13/2018 and I do not want to stop working or get lay off due to the waiting time interruption. Here is the timeline of what I do: 06/19/2018 - send the application to Chicago in USCIS by 1 day by FedEx. 06/20/2018 - USCIS received the packages. 06/29/2018 - received 4 USCIS tracking number by msg, and receive the actually mail in the next 2-3 following day. 07/01/2018 - requested to expedite my I-765 right away after I have the MSC#, the expedite request was on hold due to I have not done the Biometrics yet, and this is the final decision from USCIS. 07/13/2018 - my working permit expired. I have to leave my company and become inactive employee since that day 07/24/2018 - Biometrics (finger print) is done. 07/25/2018- call to USCIS again to request for expedite I-765 but they refused because the next expedite request has to be after 30 days of last request. 07/30/2018 - all my insurances and benefits (401K) that I had were cancelled ( So Sad) 08/01/2018 - requested to expedite again due to severe financial lost for both myself and company. 08/06/2018 - received the letter by USCIS saying they need more info and provide fax number 08/07/2018 - Faxed to USCIS the explanation. Including: Cover letter, USCIS letter, letter from HR saying all benefits has been cancelled from the date of job termination, letter from company saying they are wanting me to be back asap. 08/16/2018- USCIS updated my status as new card has been produced. I'm so beyond happy that I'm able to go to work again because I love my job and my company. I was reading a lot of topics, comments online and most of them say that the expedite process is rarely success and lots of people fail to have their working permit as their time wish. I even went to the lawyer to consult about this and she told me she never heard about the expedite success and the 90 days is no longer apply. Both lawyer and USCIS told me that it takes 5-7 months to have the working permit and travel card. Guess what, it is totally 7 weeks (June 20 - August 16) for me to receive the working permit again. Don't loose hope and do whatever you can do to get it success. As long as you gather enough information and write a very sincere letter to USCIS. (the letter from my company is I wrote by myself and my boss signed it) I'm also preparing for the interview coming up. Please share if you have any advise for me. Thank you so much for reading and I hope your expedite process is successful!

  17. 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.
  18. My son was 13 years old when we filed for an i-485 and i-765. My two daughters and I received our biometrics appointment but my son didn’t. I thought it was normal because he’s a minor and he probably doesn’t require fingerprinting. However, I received a notice of approval for my son’s EAD case yesterday. I checked his online case status but it still says “Case was received.” I’m more than confused about this. Also, my two daughters and I already received our EAD while my son hasn’t. I only received a notice of approval for his case. He’s now 14 years old. He’s not a minor anymore so how will this work? He did not get his photo taken by the USCIS as well. I called USCIS today and they said that they see NO UPDATES in my son’s case. If they have no updates, WHY DID I RECEIVE A NOTICE OF APPROVAL? What about his green card? What’s going to happen if he never had his photo and fingerprints taken? I’m really worried about his case. Has anybody had the same experience?
  19. My husband got his conditional residency green card on June 11th. I checked the USCIS case tracker, and it says "On June 14, 2018, we closed your Form I-765, Application for Employment Authorization, Receipt Number MSC**********, because the applicant or petitioner received a status or benefit through other means. If you move, go to www.uscis.gov/addresschange to give us your new mailing address." Does this mean that my husband can work? We didn't get anything in the mail and I have no idea what this means. Also, when would I lift the conditions? I know it's 1 year and 9 months from the date he is approved, but do they send you a notice? I've been trying to figure out the exact timeline. Thanks.
  20. So after waiting 6.5 months I received an RFIE for my I-485 based on wrong version of my birth certificate. I filed Jan 5th 2018. Received RFIE end of June. Sent response to which they received 7th July 2018. I raised an inquiry into my i-765 as I've been waiting 6.5 months now. Today they sent me a letter back to day I'm in normal time because my clock has been reset back to 0! After 6.5 months I have to do this whole wait all over again!!!!!!? Anyone else had experience with an RFIE so long after your PD and how it affected your EAD/AP?!
  21. Hi, My completed my fingerprint was on July 16,2018. I got following mail today - Title : Document was mailed to me On July 21, 2018, we mailed your document for Receipt Number MSCXXXXXXX, directly to the address you gave us. What does this mean?
  22. Hello beautiful peeps!!! First things first please forgive me if this topic has been already created so many times before, however my one and only question is: I have a pending AOS application (which is family based) and I’ve got my initial EAD which has expired already. I’m seeking for some help, trying to renew it. As far as I’m concerned I do not have to pay any kind of renewal fees. But I’m so confused by reading different articles about it. Please let me know what to do. I would also appreciate comprehensive information. Instructions and all of that. Yours truly Danishboi
  23. While filling out forms I-485 and I-765 there is a question about " Place of Last Arrival into the United States". My wife and son both had a pre-clearance (sealed package was given to agent) in Abu Dhabi and came to Houston (final destination) via Chicago. Question: What should I put in Place of Last Arrival into the United States?
  24. I just checked my EAD case status earlier this morning, and it turns out my request to expedite was approved and my card is in production! Just wanted to give a huge thanks to the VisaJourney community and everyone who has ever shared their timelines (I probably read every single timeline out there while in nervous anticipation...). Below is my detailed timeline and process notes in case anyone is / will be in the same boat as I was. Timeline: 05/16: Married to USC 05/24: Submitted I-130, I-485, I-765 and I-131 applications 05/25: Priority date 06/01: Received job offer to start August 6, 2018 06/07: Received NOA1 in mail (notice date of 05/31); application being processed by National Benefits Center 06/09: Received Biometrics appointment notice in mail (notice date of 06/01) 06/19: Biometrics appointment completed (could have done early walk-in, but wanted to get expedite supporting documents ready first) 06/19: Called USCIS and submitted service request to expedite EAD on the basis of Severe Financial Loss (end of current employment on 6/29 plus pending job offer to start 8/6) 06/20: Walked in to Congresswoman's office and hand-delivered case form, cover letter, and supporting documents (see list below) to Constituent Services Representative 06/22: Email response from USCIS asking for supporting documents for request to expedite: "Upon receipt of your request for expeditious processing, your case was reviewed and a determination was made that we need additional information to make a decision regarding your request. Please fax proof of a pending job offer to ###-###-####, Attn: AA####, Div #, Team #." 06/22: Forwarded USCIS email response to Constituent Services Representative, who confirmed that an expedite request has been submitted on his end as well 06/22: Faxed over supporting documents to USCIS fax number provided in email response Cover Letter; USCIS Email Response Above (they request you include in your fax); Pending Job Offer, with 8/6 start date; and Statement from Current Employer (at the time) on Termination of Employment 6/29 06/22: Submitted case to Ombudsman (https://www.dhs.gov/case-assistance) with cover letter and supporting documents 06/26: Email response from USCIS: "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." 06/29: End of current employment (at the time); effectively unemployed 07/06: Ombudsman responded saying my case is within normal processing times, but to respond if I believe I qualify for expedited processing. I responded and reattached cover letter and supporting documents 07/06: Constituent Services Representative from Congresswoman's office followed up with USCIS 07/06: Case status online changed to "Card in Production"! Notes on a couple factors (real / intangible) that may have affected my expedited processing: I am a Canadian citizen marrying a USC. I have been in the U.S. three years under the TN work visa, and four years prior to that as a student and working in the U.S. every summer. Seems like a fairly vanilla case Just a pending job offer is rarely enough anymore, but my current employment at the time was ending as well. Furthermore, when I applied, my wife was in between jobs, so our application paperwork has her down as unemployed as well. Having both of us unemployed may have pushed my situation towards the "severe" side Since these things are always subjective, I believe a good cover letter can really make the difference. In mine, I emphasized how, more important than the money, I am a young college graduate about to lose a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, which would be a major setback to my dreams My birthday is today (07/07), which may or may not have affected anything haha Happy to answer any questions / clarifications. Best, George
  25. Hello, My husband finally received his employment authorization June 2nd, 2018. We went on June 4th to apply for a social security. We had teied that before but they wouldn’t let us apply because he was on a K-1 Visa which expired when we attempted to apply. With the employment authorization card, he was able to apply for a ssn, but I wanted to know how long it took y’all to receive the social security card. Thank you!
