Does anyone know how long it usually takes to get EAD after interview is scheduled? Or after getting fingerprints applied to i-131? Is there any relation between those waiting times?

My interview was scheduled on 03/09 and fingerprints applied on 03/14.

My case status was updated and says my name was updated on April 1. I didn’t request this update. Has this happened to anyone else?

I’m now worried I spelt my name wrong in the forms.

Any Vermont L2 filers - please can your update your status. I see a few L2 cases being approved at the California center in 2-3 months... from recent posts

Any approvals of Jan/ Feb 2020 cases in Vermont? Please update

I'm a March'20 renewal filler, this is my second time appliying for a new card in under 1 year as my L2 expired and I had to reapply for my EAD again.

Hi all,

Does anyone have any recent info on how long it takes to receive EAD + SS once expedite has been approved?

My timeline for anyone curious-

1. Applied for initial EAD on 02/14/2020 (on L2 visa, which I received in early FEB)
2. Obtained receipt number over the telephone around 03/17/20 (did not receive in mail for some reason, ? slow mail due to covid-19)
3. Requested expedite over telephone on 03/20/20 as I am an RN - needed urgently here in NYC
4. Expedite approved on 03/27/20
5. No further news or mail...

P.s application is being processed in Texas, I live in NYC. My online portal still says 'expedite received' although I have an email saying it has been approved.

Thankyou in advance for any info, Keep safe and well :)

We applied i-765 EAD Jan 13th 2020 -- no response yet.
Wanted to check if any one got response for Jan applications especially at Texas center?

Thanks in Advance.

Hi All,
I applied for my EAD renewal (L2 category) on Feb 20. Received an acknowledgement too. EAD expires on June 13, 2020.

Does anyone know what is happening with this Current situation of CoVID closure? I know they are processing EAD requests but i am worried that the timeline will be affected. I am thinking worst case scenario - what would happen if i dont receive my card by June? Can i do anything from my end to expedite it? I was expecting that USCIS will announce extensions because of this lockdown but nothing so far. any inputs would be welcome. I dont want to quit my job :( :(

Thank you !

Hi All,

I am currently working on OPT EAD which is due to expire in 5 weeks. I used an attorney for all of the process but the Expedite as I have figured mine is slow. I requested an expedite because my husband is currently unable to work/earn income due to the lock down (pandemic). He is self employed and will not be getting benefits. I have been the sole income earner for the past couple of weeks and now I fear my EAD will soon expire before getting a new one through I-765 and things will go down hill from there.

My expedite mentioned all of this and I faxed the letter from my company's attorney, my OPT EAD showing the expiration, proof that my husband is self employed as a skilled worker and the lock down order from the governor of my state.

Just curious to see if anyone thinks my expedite will be approved. Also, from my timeline, can you estimate when I will receive an EAD?

PD: 10/15/2019
Finger Print Applied: 11/22/2019
RFE receipt update: 3/17/2020
Fingerprints applied to I-130: 3/5/2020
Case ready to be scheduled for interview: 3/23/2020
Expedite Request: 4/6/2020

All thoughts are welcome. Thank you!
