Process to Renew EAD/AP application... Please advice.


Recommended Posts

Hello friends,

I got my EAD/AP combo card last year with EB2 category. This is my first time to renewal my EAD/AP card .

Please advice for my below questions regarding renewal my EAD/AP card.

1 . Is it advisable to renewal EAD/AP by myself OR give renewal process to any immigration lawyer?

2. Can you please send me the steps or documents that mention how to renew EAD/AP combo card by self.

2. What is the chance of rejection or any risk if I feel renewal EAD/AP process by myself?

Thanks you in advance.

There won't be any chance of rejection as long as you send a GENUINE copy of the documents required. The worst thing that can happen is they might ask for more information (this is very random and does not depend on the applicantion, think of it as a bad luck lottery)

Anyway, I did the same recently and it was very easy. In one USPS package, I sent both the EAD & AP applications along with the suggested documents to the same address. You may want to double check the address based on your service center. Also, remember both are separate applications and will require separate sets of supporting documents even though you are sending it in one package to one address.

The letter below is my EAD letter. I wrote a similar letter for AP (change EAD to AP & make other appropriate changes to the letter below)
