  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. Background: AOS adjustment through marriage from F1 status | Currently residing in California Hi guys, I haven't received my EAD card yet and I'm starting to worry. It's been almost 4 months now. Here's my timeline so far: 05/09/2019: USCIS RECEIVED MY FILE 05/18/2019: NOTICES IN MAIL 05/24/2019: BIOMETRICS LETTERS 06/07/2019: BIOMETRICS DONE My USCIS status for FORM I-765 says: "...we completed our review of your fingerprints and are working on your form I-765... We will let you know if we make any decision or need anything from you..." Is it normal? Thanks.
  3. Would like to know if this is the case, as some sources of info I've come across have had contradicting answers to my questions.
  4. If a Canadian (now dual citizen of Can-US) living and working in US permanently (non resident declared in Canada when moved to US), has to goto Canada for a short work related trip. Does he need to inform CBP officer that he is coming for work? Or as a citizen he can enter without any reason? He has a family members (siblings and relatives) that he yearly visits in summer. So part of the short work trip is to meet them naturally. The reason for this question is, he wants to know if a work permit is required or he need to have a letter for his employer for the reason for his work related trip.
  5. I petitioned to get a work permit expedited via my congressman as I have an impending job offer, which was successful, but due to a USCIS error (they thought I hadn't paid my fees) my i-131 application is about a month behind my i-765. I finally received my EAD card today but it says "not valid for reentry to U.S." on the bottom. I'm guessing that getting the work permit expedited doesn't also expedite the Advance Parole application, even though they seem to come together on a 'combo card' nowadays... From the brief reading I've done it looks like I might get the 'advance parole' on a separate paper letter, which is kind of annoying to have to carry around every time I travel abroad (which will be quite often for work reasons), but is there any point me contacting USCIS to ask if this is a mistake or if they can cancel my current EAD card and re-issue a 'combo card' once the AP is granted??
  6. Hello, I am adjusting status from F1 Student to Green Card through marriage (filed in May 2019) and would like to get health insurance while I wait for my green card (fingerprints approved - waiting on work permit). I would like to get health insurance but unfortunately open enrollment closed and I do not qualify for any of the special events so I would have to wait until November 2019. My husband has private insurance but adding me is not an option. 1. Is there a way to get health insurance now? 2. If so, where? Thank you!
  7. Hi, I am J2 dependent and I arrived with my spouse July 1st. I am now applying for an EAD. We got temporary 30-day SIM cards to help us get around and contact leasing agents and such for the first month here. In my i-765 form I need to supply a Daytime Telephone Number, I can do this but I know my SIM will run out at the end of the month and I will lose my number. Will the authorities use that number to call me? or is this just for records? What the best thing I can do here? Should I just enter my current number (knowing it will change?) Many thanks!
  8. Hello everyone! My husband and I submitted Form I-485 (Green Card) in November of 2018 and then submitted the applications for work and travel authorization I-131 & I-765 (we would have submitted those with the original green card paperwork but didn't know this was an option!) Our work/travel documents were received at the NATIONAL BENEFITS CENTER in December of 2018! It has now been 5 months waiting for these documents and there seems to be no end in sight, the waiting times just keep going up! Has anyone received their work authorization card after submitting paperwork to the National Benefits Center in December 2018??
  9. Hello everyone, i already received my greencard interview date which would be next month, however up to this, i have not received my EAD or work permit. Will i still receieved it? What happens if i don't get my work permit while my greencard interview is on? Please help, it worries me..thank you.
  10. If this is in the wrong thread I apologize. I have been married to a US citizen for 2 years now (I am South African). We have been waiting for our interview for going on 22 months. My initial EAD expired and I applied for an extension through my attorneys in April, before my EAD expired to be proactive. After 7 months my new EAD has still not arrived. Now the US government is claiming I left the US on the 14th of September which is completely false. They asked for an RFE, the only proof I had was an UberEats receipt for that date, showing the delivery address as our residence. I googled this and found very little info other than people suggesting to look at my i94 travel history. When going on the website, my i94 is there but when clicking on my travel history it says "no record found for traveler". Does anyone know what this means? I have done everything that has been asked of me, now I havent had my interview, I am unable to work because my 180 extension period for my EAD is over and the US government claims I have left the US when I didnt and my Travel History seems to have disappeared? Should I be worried? What can I expect going forward? Our attorneys have expedited my case and told me they have "never seen such unprecedented and egregious claims" before. My wife and I are extremely stressed out at this point and I feel like I'm constantly swimming against the stream and trying to keep my head above water. Anyone with any advice or knowledge about what is happening to me, please inform me. Sincerely, Andre
  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. 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?
  13. 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?
  14. 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?
  15. 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?

  18. Hello guys, wondering if anybody had similar situations. I'm currently self-employed in my home country (Ukraine) and doing some freelancing. it so happened that a lot of work I'm currently doing is for an American company and my future husband is a co-owner of that company (long story, started working together before we even started dating). We spoke to a lawyer and he said that if I come on K-1, get married and do some work for my hubby's company for free, that will be considered as helping the family business and won't be looked at as an employment. my questions are: 1) have anybody helped their spouses on business before getting ead or green card and have you listed that in your docs? 2) have anyone had troubles for similar kind of employment and how you handled it? 3) are there any people working remotely for us or non-us companies and getting paid while waiting for ead? thanks!!!!
  19. 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!

  21. I've applied for my temporary green card (adjustment of status, i-485 from K-1 visa) in December, last year. This week, I received my combo card (which both includes work permit and advance parole). I know that the card says that this card "does not guarantee re-entry to the United States" but I have also seen A LOT of people who have traveled outside the country with the same case as mine. I want to know if it is safe to travel outside of the country for a month as I am planning to visit my family. If you can share your experiences or know anything about the current situations regarding my case (relating to any new immigration news or drafts signed, etc), PLEASE share! Thanks in advance .
  22. H everybody. I came to the US and married my US CITIZEN WIFE. I got my Social Security Card with a stamp "Work Only with DHS Authorization". I applied for the AOS and already have biometrics appointment this Friday(25th). My question is: i found a job somewhere, they only asked for my Social Security card and didn't ask for proof from DHS, can this become a problem for me in the future with my AOS process ???
