Default EAD renewal -how long does it take?

I live in California. I have mailed my EAD renewal documents to the new Arizona lockbox facility as per the new I-765 instructions. The docs reached there on 04/19 and signed by J.ESTRADA. How long does it typically take for USCIS to cash the check? I read in some of the forum posts that the EAD processing has slowed down with the new lockbox facilities.

Thanks,
AjaySri

Hi,

I am applying for renewal of our EAD (wife and mine) today via efile. Can someone please reply and let me know if PAR - PAROLEE is the right selection for these 2 entries.

Manner of last entry PAR - PAROLEE
Current immigration status PAR - PAROLEE

I know PAROLEE is the right option but their are so many Parolee selection that it is confusing.

We both are on EAD and used AP after we returned from India in Jan 2010.

Thanks and appreciate the help.

Hi
Im in CA, mailed my EAD renewal to Phoenix lock box on Apr 15th. No checks cashed yet. On the other note on 4/8/2010 I had sent in my AP renewal (Paper file) the checks were cashed today 4/21/2010. I received an email with recpt # and it says it was routed to Nebraska service center. I dont know the reason why they have to put Phoenix lock box in new form?

If they had mentioned Nebraska, i could have mailed it my self it would have saved time.

I am in the same situation - mailed AP applications which were delivered on 4/13 to Phoenix lockbox.

Check have not been encashed yet - wonder if our applications are en route to NSC now?

USCIS - keeps us on the edge, love it!

I fedexed ours on 4/2 and received 4/5 in Arizona based on fedex confirmation.

Got email and text notice on Saturday 4/17. Based on Text and email, Arizona received it on 4/15 and checks were cashed on 4/17.

I got LIN**** numbers on the email and text.

Also the email and text mentioned that they routed it to Nebraska.

Now just waiting for the Paper Receipt.

I e-filed my EAD recently I selected PAROLEE for both . I presume that would be the right option to select. I don't think those are mandatory fields for EAD application submission .Better to provide more info than slapped with a RFE.

It took 10 days for Arizona to cash checks and sent a text and email. Then they routed to Nebraska.

This whole lockbox arrangement reminds me so much of the Backlog Elimination Centers for pre-PERM labor certifications. These centers perhaps created bigger backlogs than they eliminated. It seems this whole lockbox thing is causing more delays...way to go USCIS...nice job creating more redundant processes!!

I read in the I-765 instructions form that an Interim EAD can be issued if the EAD renewal case is pending for 90 days. I hope that such a situation should not arise, but is this a viable backup option? Is the procedure for getting the interim EAD documented any where?

Forgive me if I am missing the point here... Why send it to AZ when it is re-routed to Nebraska? Is there a requirement to send it to the AZ lockbox? or can it be sent directly...
