EAD card lost and I 94- expired - Need help


Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone,


My I140/I485 GC application has been filed under concurrent filing along with  Employment Authorization Document(EAD) and Advance Parole(AP) applications.

My EAD has been approved and I have received I-797 approval notice stating that my application for EAD and AP has been approved.


However, the EAD card( Form I766 with I-512 endorsement) was not delivered to my address and was sent back to USCIS due to some reason.


Now, my H1B extenson is denied and I have the following questions.


  • As my I-94 has expired and H1b extn denied , do I continue to maintain valid status in US as I have pending I-485 application? 
  • Can I use EAD approval notice( I797) for I9 submission and continue working in US till I 485 adjudicated?
  • What is the process to request for a replacement EAD card?

Appreciate your help,


Thank you
