  1. Hi, So my 10 year green card will expire in just under 6 months. I'm working on applying via form I90 online and there was a question about where my entry was granted. I'm not sure if that's Jacksonville or if I supposed to put USCIS, Consulate... Also, for those who have done this before can I pay online? How long does it take? Do I need to do biometrics again? What should I expect? Note, I was married 9 years and been divorced for the past 3 years. Im sure I'm good to go there. Thank you Sue
  2. Hi Guys! I filed for AOS/EAD/AP based on a K1 visa on Feb 2018 shortly after I got married. I received my EAD/AP combo card on July 2018 and it is valid until July 2019 (1 year). Meanwhile, since I reside in NYC, the AOS(I-485) takes much much longer than expected. I'm waiting for them to schedule an interview since September 2018 ("Case is Ready to Be Scheduled for An Interview"). USCIS is saying it takes 15-31.5 (AOS) months for NYC - https://egov.uscis.gov/processing-times/ It looks like my current EAD/AP will expire (July 2019) before I'll receive my green card. What are my options? - Is it true that I can submit for a renewal up to 6 months before it expires? - Will they waiver the EAD/AP fee since it's based on a AOS? - Will it be quicker this time since it's a renewal? (It took me 5.5 months to get my current combo card) Thank you all so much, this forum kicks ###! -David
  3. Hi! My passport and my son's about to expire on Dec. 2019 and m thinking of getting 2 round trip (asap) tickets to go to the Philippines for an emergency matter. 1. Is it ok to get a roundtrip ticket with the soon to be expired passport and get it renewed (expedited) in the Philippnes before our return to the US? Will it cause trouble at the airport going back to the States because a renewed passport will have a different passport number? It wont be the same passport number on the round trip plane ticket. 2. Shall i just get a 1 way ticket and get my passport renewed (expedited) in the Philippiines and just buy a ticket going back to the states? What will be the best course to do? Thank you.
  4. My husband is on L1 A blanket visa and I am on L2 visa. I-94 expiry date: Husband -03/20/2020 Wife -12/19/2020 My EAD expired in May 2019,i forgot to renew my EAD and worked for two months(i went through medical surgeries and it slipped our mind about renewal process). As soon as we released, I quit my job and notified HR about this. My husband's company is applying for L1/L2 renewal's. 1. what are the consequences we need to face because of my violation, during the renewal process? 2.will I be able to apply for EAD again once our visa renewal gets approved? 3. Will I be denied for the extension? 4.do I need to show any medical documents to support my violation during that time? 5. It will affect my i-485, how to rectify the situation Please help? we are in a lot of stress thinking about the situation.
  5. Hi, If you are doing aos from k1 and haven’t received green card, what should you put as (P1Q6) immigration admission status on renewal i-131 form? We applied for 485/765/131 last June and ead/card received and will expire in Oct., was told to fill out renewals 120 days in advance. Also, for P3Q4a, what should we put - not sure “reentry permit” is applicable? Same questions on 1-765 too (P2 Q24 & 25) Thank you in advance for assistance.
  6. Hi Guys, I'm a little confused after reading contradicting answers online. My situation in short- I filed for AOS/EAD/AP based on a K1 visa on Feb 2018 shortly after I got married. I received my EAD/AP combo card on July 2018 and it is valid until July 2019 (1 year).  Meanwhile, since I reside in NYC, the AOS(I-485) takes much much longer than expected. I'm waiting for them to schedule an interview since September 2018 ("Case is Ready to Be Scheduled for An Interview"). Last month I filed for an EAD renewal and received a 797C notice therefore automatically extending my EAD card by 180 days. My main question is regarding my advance parole (I-131)- 1. Is it true that it is valid for 2 years and not 1 year? (my current combo card specifically mentions that the card itself expires on July 2019 without distinguishing between my EAD and AP) 2. If it does expire on July 2019, can I file for a renewal in similar way to my EAD renewal? (I read somewhere that AP cannot be extended) 3. I traveled abroad in December 2018 and returned on Jan 3rd 2019. Upon return the border patrol officer stamped my foreign passport, and wrote under "Paroled" the date of Jan 2nd 2020 (which is 1 year ahead). So my question here is what does this mean? Is my AP valid until July 2019 or Jan 2020? I'm sorry for my very long question Thanks, Dave
  7. 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!
  8. Hi, My EAD/AP runs out on August 28th so I was starting the renewal process today and planning to send everything by tomorrow or the next day. However, as I've been doing all the paperwork I've discovered that I've lost NOA1 for the I-485 and I need this for the renewal (and yes, I've 100% lost it). I need to send the renewal stuff by the end of this week because it's now 6 months until my EAD/AP runs out, can anyone please tell me how I can get another NOA1 for I-485 quickly??? Thank you in advance!!
  9. Hey guys! My driver's license is expiring March 1st and I am trying to figure out a way to renew it. On the DMV website it says that I need verification of legal status but I still don't have my EAD card and I don't even have an approval notice yet. The only thing I have is the I-797C receipt. But they don't mention anything about them accepting that as proof. What can I do? Anyone had the same issue before? I live in California. Thanks for your help!

  11. Hi everyone! We are currently waiting for our NOA2 but we have a doubt and we cant find much information about it. I (beneficiary) travel a lot and my current passport only has 2 blank pages and I might need more for my job. I was thinking of renewing my passport before the case is sent out to the NVC. Do you think I can just update my passport information? Or will this be an issue? My us tourist visa is stamped in my current passport. Thanks in advance for your kind replies!
  12. 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?
  13. Hello! I'm currently filing for my EAD/AP combo card renewal and I'm stuck at the last port/date of entry question in the application. I initially entered the US on k1 visa on July 3rd, 2017 in Atlanta, GA. However, I also went on a 5 day cruise (New Orleans - Mexico - New Orleans) that lasted from Jan 29, 2018 to Feb 3, 2018. The travel history in my I-94 shows my initial port of entry (Atalanta, GA) and the departure in January 2018 for my cruise (doesn't say the specific location though, it just says "unknown") but it doesn't show the arrival. The thing is when I arrived in New Orleans from the cruise, they never checked any of my documents. They didn't scan anything or ran anything through their system so this whole situation is really confusing to me. Now I'm not sure what to say on my application. Do I put July 3rd, 2017, Atlanta, GA or do I put Feb 3, 2018 , New Orleans, LA? I'd really appreciate any help! Thank you!
  14. Hi all! My AOS is in process right now today i received a status update about my AOS is Ready to Be Scheduled for An Interview. Since my Hong Kong passport going to expire May 2019, I think for safety I should renew it first right? I think I have two options, 1) Go back to Hong Kong to do it after I got my AP 2) Go to the Chinese embassy to do it Just wondering if anyone have experience of renewing your passport in the Chinese embassy in the US?
  15. 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
  16. Hi everyone I am really shocked to receive news my petition to renew my EAD was rejected due to missing fees and outdated form. The form I understand I used mostly the one I sent long ago with my original AOS package. But it is to my understanding I do not have to pay a fee if my AOS is pending. Three days ago I received an e-mail that my interview was scheduled. But I haven't received anything in the mail. My renewal AP was approved and is now in processing and I didn't send any fees for it. My questions are: is a c9 category still valid for renewal of EAD? I sent the proof my AOS was pending. What else do they need to show I don't have to pay for it. Would it be wise not to send it and wait for the AOS interview and just wait for the GC ? Please help!
  17. Ive seen many posts requiring a ton of stuff that the instructions never mention so i'm confused whether or not we need all of this documentation. In the instructions from USCIS, https://www.uscis.gov/sites/default/files/files/form/i-765instr.pdf on page 13, it says you need these things Application filled out a copy of your EAD (the card i assume) 2 identical passport style photos that's all i see for filing documentation. can someone point me to other official uscis documentation stating other required paperwork? I see plenty of posts saying we need the i765 NOA1 and NOA2 and a g1145 form but that's not listed here..
  18. Hey guys! We're currently in the process of waiting for our NOA2 (which hopefully should be approved within the next couple months!) I just wondered if anyone had any experience with renewing passports in this period, and if this has any adverse effect on the process? To clarify, it will be the beneficiary who is renewing their passport in this instance. While it does have a few years left on it, I thought it best to renew it now so it has a fresh 10-year validity so I don't have to worry about having to renew it when (hopefully) having moved to be with my fiancé in the US. Will this be a problem? The only bit of evidence that we supplied USCIS with which contained the passport number was a copy of the I-94, a copy of a U.S entry visa, and a copy of the biographical page of the beneficiary passport. Other than that, we did not list the passport number on the actual application form. My worry is that they might see it, do their background searches, and see its invalid as I will have acquired a new one. Could this cause us issues? Also, if I do renew my passport, would I have to let them know I have a new passport as the beneficiary, or do I just continue the process? Any advice is appreciated! Thanks!
  19. Hello everyone! Soon I will renew my EAD (I cannot do that before 180 days before expiring as their website says) and for those who did so, I was wondering if you had to go through the fingerprint thing again (biometrics). Thank you!
  20. Hi all, I sent in my EAD/AP renewal on May 21st. It says it was delivered on the 29th. Last time it took a week to get a notification but I still haven't heard anything and it's been 10 days since they received it. I attached the G-1145 for both packets. I sent it to: For FedEx, UPS, and DHL deliveries: USCIS Attn: FBAS 131 South Dearborn-3rd Floor Chicago, IL 60603-5517 Are they just really backed up? I thought I would at least get the notification by now.
