EAD-AP Renewal approved, but for different durations

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

Recently we applied for EAD & AP Extension/Renewal for myself and my spouse. PD is March 2009. We received the "Combo card", However, for me (primary applicant), the card is valid for 2 years and for my spouse the card is valid for one year. Both of us are from same counrty (India).

Would like to know if this is normal or should I bring this to USCIS' notice ?

The USCIS has discretion on whether or not to issue the Employment Authorization Document (EAD) and Advance Parole (AP) combination cards for 1 or 2 years. If your wife is issued a card for 1 year, it is not government error, so you must make sure to renew your wife’s EAD and AP the next year. In some cases, the different years are due to the fact that the renewals were sent in separately rather than filed together.
