I485 & I130 Interview Date Set But Still No Word On EAD

Recommended Posts

Good evening,

 

I just got an email notification from USCIS website as follows:

 

*** DO NOT RESPOND TO THIS E-MAIL ***


The last processing action taken on your case


Receipt Number: MSC1391315514


Application Type: I485 , APPLICATION TO REGISTER PERMANENT RESIDENCE OR TO ADJUST STATUS


Your Case Status: Testing and Interview


On August 13, 2013, we mailed you an appointment notice for an interview for September 18, 2013. Please follow the instructions on the notice. If you move while this case is pending, please use our Change of Address online tool to update your case with your new address or call our customer service center at 1-800-375-5283.


If your case status indicates that you are currently in this step, you have either been scheduled for an interview or are in line to be scheduled for an interview. The amount of time your application will remain in this step will vary by office and is largely determined by the number of cases ahead of yours. The interview notice will have specifics about time, location and anything you will need to bring to your interview. If your application remains pending beyond our normal processing times (as shown below) please contact our national customer service center at 1-800-375-5283.

Please note that not every application/applicant will require an interview.  In some instances, an interview is required by regulation and others an interview is requested because USCIS has determined that this is the most efficient means to determine eligibility. For a naturalization application the interview will include your taking the required English and/or Civics tests (unless exempt or waived).



If you have questions or concerns about your application or the case status results

listed above, or if you have not received a decision from USCIS within the current

processing time listed*, please contact USCIS Customer Service at (800) 375-5283.


*Current processing times can be found on the USCIS website at www.uscis.gov under Check Processing Times.


*** Please do not respond to this e-mail message.


Sincerely,


The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS)

 

However I still have no word on my EAD and teh status online still says "initial review". Any idea if anyone else in the same boat as me and still waiting for an EAD?

 

Thanks

Hi,

Can you please tell when you applied for I 485 and I 131?

Hello Newbie,

 

I applied for my I485 & I130 in May (end of May) and when I looked at my status online, it said that they recieved my application on June 10th 2013 and was under "initial review" stage.

 

Are you asking because the application date for EAD will matter here?

 

Thanks

Wait for a few weeks. It's not unheard of getting the EAD only a couple of weeks before the greenc ard is approved.

Can anyone tell me when can I officially start working? DO I have to wait until the card is mailed physically? And if so, how long after these notifications that I will recieve the card in mail.

 

Thanks

You can start working right away as the EAD will have the start date of the day the I765 is approved. It generally takes a week to receive the card physically.
