Hi all,

I am the wife of an L1 visa holder. I am an L2 applying for EAD renewal.

Sharing my experience on here to give hope to some.
This is my 5th EAD process over the 4.5 years I have lived here in the USA. All previous times have been stressful but always within processing time. My current EAD expires Sept 25th. Here is my timeline--

6/14 PD filed @ Texas
9/17 Raised SR Stating Severe Financial Loss
9/18 SR Denied (via email - this denial came from Vermont, not sure if my case was moved there or this is where all SR are looked in to?)
9/20 Notification of Card Being Processed

So now I am just waiting for my card to arrive in my mailbox. Guys, I was so stressed about not getting the EAD in time. I am employed by a big corporation here in America. We were making arrangements for me to go back to England and work from there whilst waiting for the EAD to come through. Earlier this week I even booked my flight to return home to the UK to continue working (now that's a waste!). Please explore this option with your employer whilst you wait. My employer did not suggest this option, I did, and they liaised with their legal counsel and found out this was a fine way to proceed.

I would advise all to make sure you have filed everything meticulously to avoid RFE and raise SR as soon as you're at 90 days. I got denied officially but then a few days later I got notified card was being processed so maybe SR drew attention to my case. On the phone when raising the SR I was very polite, made sure I expressed my worry and was very thankful and complimentary to the man at the help centre. I feel extremely lucky and wish you all good luck!

I will update when I have card in hand.
