  • Is it possible EAD takes longer for people who overstayed their visas?

    Technically I only overstayed my F1 visa/OPT by 1 week before we got married. However, I waited for almost a year after the wedding to turn in my green card packet so in paper, I might have overstayed for much longer.
    Anyways, those of you who overstayed your visas of any kind before filing for AOS, do you think your applications are/were taking longer than people who didn't overstay? It's been almost half a year since my PD and I still haven't heard anything new from my EAD except fingerprint completed while a lot of people filed later than I did got theirs like a month ago (congrats , no hard feelings), so Im trying to figure out why.

    I don't think there is one variable involved, different offices, different officers, different documents attached to I-485, etc.

    I hope you get your interview date soon so you don't worry for EAD anymore. Good luck.

      thank you so much haha. It's just super frustrating that there's no answer for anything

        I don't think so. If you go down this road, on paper I could be considered as the ideal candidate: never overstayed a visa, still on a H1B (which has dual intent), coming from a "friend" country, few of my people immigrate to the US, etc. and I still don't have my EAD (PD 10/25/18). I really don't think it matters. Could have a slight impact on the interview, maybe, but not on EAD I don't think.
