January 2012 Bulletin Track EB2 Approvals

Recommended Posts

Hello,

Derivative's application (wife's) for EAD has been approved and even got an email today saying the card has been mailed. But the primary application (mine) is still in initial review. Did this happen to anyone? I am not sure how they process these applications. I thought primary application will be processed first and then dependent's.

Appreciate any comments on this.

Thanks in advance!

Mumora,

My case is similar to you. My wife's EAD and ADP was approved and also recived the card in mail. Mine is still in review. I have seen couple of these cases and I guess it's not something unusual.

My RD was 01/03/12 and FP was scheduled and done on 02/10/12, But i received EAD only on Saturday 02/26/12. So its quite possible that you will receive EAD in a week or so hopefully.

EAD does not have a dependency on FP. you should get EAD within 90 days of applying for it. Before that, there is no point in calling.

You can call USCIS to the number you had on your receipt. 30 days after your notice date. Since your ND is on Jan 16th, call now. Mine is Jan 17th, called last week and scheduled with in 3 days. Make sure spouse is on call if you were applying for dependents.

hey guys...I think i got greened !!!

On February 28, 2012, we ordered production of your new card. Please allow 30 days for your card to be mailed to you. If we need something from you we will contact you. If you move before you receive the card, call customer service at 1-800-375-5283.

This step applies to applications that result in an applicant receiving a card (such as a "green card") or other document (such as a naturalization certificate, employment authorization document, travel document, or advance parole). Applications will be in this step from the time the order to produce the card/document is given until the card/document is produced and mailed to the applicant. You can expect to receive your card/document within 30 days of the approval of your application.

My call is not for EAD. My call is for scheduling FP since I my notice date (Jan 17th) is past 30 days. I called on, say a Tuesday and received FP notices on Saturday morning's mail from USPS. Luckily received EAD/AP and FP notices on same day.

hollykick When I called USCIS requesting them to schedule a finger print notice they mentioned that we have to wait for 30 days from the receipt date. They will take a request only after that. I mentioned my receipt date and hence they had taken my request. With in three days I got FP notice in mail. dush51 yes, we shall associate in sharing our experiences. I had plans to fly India with in next two months. That's the reason for trying an early walk-in, also had to visit client during third week of March. I don't want to re-schedule again. Anyway, did you try to go for a walk-in? My PD is March 2008, once dates are current for many, I heard processing is first come first serve.

Hey iChap,

I did not got for FP yet. My date will be current tomorrow. I wanted to know if you had any problems if you do early walk-in! I'm gonna show them my tickets and see if they'll accept an early walk-in.

Thanks for the reply.

I really doubt the people who post they received EAD/AP before FP.

As far as my knowledge goes,its impossible.The whole point they do the FP is that they want to make sure they are not giving EAD to someone with criminal records.

There is no way giving the EAD first and doing FP later, which totally defies the purpose.

I know all this because,i was told by a rep at NSC when i applied for my student EAD last year.

They need your picture and code2 biometrics for I 765 which is mandatory.They will use the picture for your EAD card taken during the FP.

code 3 biometrics (all 10 fingers is required for FBI check)

You are wrong! I got EAD/AP first and then FP schedule later. I don't see any link but true in case of 485 approval. Nothing to do with EAD/AP before FP.

You are not right. EAD/AP can be got before FP. only thing is your finger print will not be on cards.

Please file AR-11 and also inform USCIS of change of address by calling them and update their database.
