EAD Expedite: Sample cover letter
Hi everyone,

This forum is helping me a lot with information. I'm a December filler and married to a USC. My service center is NBC and yesterday they change the processing time, was on October 6, and now is on September 7 for the I-765. I will expedite my EAD based on financial loss. Please, does anyone have a sample of a successful cover letter to share? I will send my financial documents and a job offer as well. Any help would be very appreciated.

EAD renewalVisa E-2 spouse
Hi there,

Just want to share my positive experience!
I recently received new EAD. It was an E-2 EAD renewal (no interview required). According to the USCIS website the processing time for these cases was 7 to 9 months!

Service Center: California
18 February 2020: USCIC received my Form I-765, Application for Employment Authorization.
28 April 2020: USCIS approved my Form I-765, Application for Employment Authorization and the new EAD was ordered
30 April 2020: USCIS mailed my new card
4 May 2020: I received my new EAD
Total time: 76 days

I think it means that turnaround for these cases should be much less than the website is showing!

Good luck to everyone waiting!

I765-EAD-Work permit- marriage certificate in foreign language
Hello all,

My wife and I moved to the US few months back. My wife holds L1-B visa and I hold L2 visa. I applied for EAD for myself

I received a request for evidence regarding my marriage certificate. I was asked to send a marriage certificate in foreign language along with an english translation.

We got married in Hyderabad, India. Our marriage certificate has native language and its translation in English within a single document. I do not have a separate marriage certificate in native language since both languages are on the same document.

Did someone face this issue and can you please help.  My email is [email protected]

Thanks in advance,

Hi everyone!
I finally got notification that my I-765 was approved!!!!! I've been waiting since November.
Does this mean that I should be expecting my card in the mail? I've been reading through this forum that most people got a notification that their card was being produced. Does this mean I'll have to wait for a while longer before I get my card?

Any advice would help! Thanks!

Married to USC (04/15/19).
Priority date (11/27/19)
Case was received (12/04/19)
Finger prints were taken (12/26/19)
RFIE (birth certificate,financial things) (01/27/20)
RFIE was received (03/12/20)
Case is ready to be scheduled for an interview (03/23/20)

Ucscis website still shows my i-765 as ‘’ notice was returned to uscis because the post office could not deliver it’’ it was for RFE and i called them for this notice and they sent me the notice on e-mail which required some evidences, i fixed them all anyways. My case ready to be scheduled but uscis still showing same notice for my form i-765. I’m thinking thats why i didn’t received my EAD and SSN.

Have anyone experienced same situation with me?

Couple weeks ago, I have received my Work permit without my social security number card. Since then , I have decided to call up the local social security office (Charlotte,NC)to verify if there was an entry for me but there was not, so one of their agent told me to fill out the SS5 form along with my original documents ( work permit & passport) in order to received my card

Suddenly, after a month and half. Today when I went to check out my Mail , I just received my social security number card from Baltimore, Maryland. I don’t know what that means. I have already sent my work permit and passport to receive a new card. What should i do to prevent to have a second social security card along with my original documents back that I applied with ?

I-765 NBC, NYC
I-485 updated May 5-2020 case ready to be scheduled.
I-765 updated May 7-2020 we ordered your new card.

Normally that I am happy. Took 5 months and a half to be approved, with 2 expedite requests denied, check my profile.
I thought that going to create me problems because I filed for I-485 for a second time and I thought I am gonna wait 1 year and than sue in court, thanks god it didn’t, but still need to be careful for I-485 now.

The first time I filed with a notary service and that was stupid cause she didn’t know shit, she didn’t even advised me to maintain legal status or even go back, this time with a lawyer.
Also I had wrong expectations, short story Uscis is not your friend.

Good luck to everyone.
