Filed w/ lawyer (green card marriage, NBC): 7/17
Biometrics: 8/16

Now to my question, my request to expedite was supported by my congresswoman, and on USCIS online account 10/16 it says my request was received. i also received an email saying:

"Case Status: Acceptance
On October 16, 2019, we received your request for expedited processing on your Form I765, APPLICATION FOR EMPLOYMENT AUTHORIZATION, Receipt Number ******. We are reviewing your request and will notify you if we need additional information."

Meanwhile, my lawyer says: "Your application is with an adjudicator. They’re making a decision on the applications themselves, not the expedite, which was already approved. If they approve the applications, USCIS will issue the EAD and Advanced Parole."

I don't understand this discrepancy, someone with experience that can assist? Also, is it "normal" to not hear back after request was approved 10/16?

At Nebraska (I-485(husband's employment-based, I-765, I-131)
RD: July 15, 2019
Biometrics: Aug 20, 2019

My husband and I applied at the same time. His case was approved as of Nov 7th for both I-765 and I-131. His EAD card status shows "card has been mailed" as of Nov 12th.

While my case status shows "we waived your fees". I contacted USCIS office to expedite on the basis of pending job offer. I know that chances are very low to expedite on this basis, but the officer was very much willing to file this request so I went ahead. I'm thinking of contacting congressman to add to this expedite request.

What's funny is, my husband didn't even need his EAD urgently as his H1-B is valid til 2021 and not looking to change jobs. And I'm the one who has been eagerly waiting for EAD so I could start working. I asked for start date extension at my new job.

Hi, I have a question regarding processing time.

Person filed I-765 married to USC (US Citizenship) processing time is faster than people who filed I-765 married to GC holder?

I have an update at last - my EAD card is in production!! My I-131 still says “case received” but I filed them concurrently so hoping that the combo card arrives.

I filed on April 18th 2019 so just short of a 7 month wait (will probably be just over 7 months when I have the card in my hand). Marriage based @ NBC.

Good luck to all of you! Hang in there. It’ll come soon.

I played with the tracker app to figure out what series of Receipt numbers are being worked on.

And I think currently 1991413500 to 1991414500 are getting processed. There are exceptions as there are numbers below 3500 (based on last 4 digits) that are still pending and some over 4500 that are already done. I think this roughly aligns with receipt dates in June and early July.

One thing I can't figure out different types of EAD applications are handled separately or in the same queue (such as OPT, CPT, H4, Marriage based etc.) and can have different time lines.

Does your ead card come same day with a social security number? Or would you have to go at your local social security building and apply for one?

So, waiting about 4 months, I expedite my case on basis of a financial loss.

Anyone has any idea what the success rate of these expedites is?
