Hi all, I am currently on F-1 on STEM OPT extension with EAD expiring on Feb 24 2020. I filed for AOS (and a new EAD) thru marriage to a USC spouse in August last year, and still waiting for a new EAD (151 days as of today). Since my current STEM OPT extension EAD expires in a month or so, I am starting to freak out. I have not told my supervisor at work just yet since I do not want to cause any panic. Here is my timeline: Concurrent filing of I-485/I-130/I-131/I-765 received 8/6/19 Biometrics done 9/10/19 I-765 status changed to "case was updated to show finger prints were taken" 9/10/19 I-485 status changed to "case is ready to be scheduled for an interview" 12/13/19 Is there anything I can do to prepare for a scenario where my current EAD expires before the new EAD comes? From the EAD approval timeline on VJ, USCIS website and Trackitt, the processing time seems pretty variable so I feel it is hard to predict what's going to happen. Is it worth it to apply for an Expedite Request??? Or should I continue to sit tight hoping for the new EAD approval soon? Thanks for all the input & help in advance! Mai
