Default RFE For EAD Underlying I140

Got an RFE saying underlying I140 is not found. Any one has similar experience? I know for sure that the I 140 is not withdrawn by my company as I am working with the same company itself. I submitted the copy of I 140 approval and waiting for the the result.

Default TSC AP+EAD applications

Sent AP and EAD applications together for me and spouse with cover letter asking for 2 year combo card. Previously we had a 2 year EAD card and our APs had expired a while back. Forgot to sign my EAD application so it was sent back to me to sign 3 weeks later which I signed and resent.

Spouse got combo card for 1 year only within a month after we sent the application and I just got my AP approval after 6 weeks. Still waiting for my EAD approval.

While primar is still waiting, dependents got approved EAD/ AP with combo card for one year only. With SR I got the following reply from USCIS. Hope



Upon review of our computer systems and records, the validity periods are correct. When an I-766, Advance Parole EAD, also known as a combo card, is issued for the first time, the validity period is one year, regardless of visa availability. Although you had an EAD previously, per USCIS records, this is your first combo card. As such, this is considered an initial issuance and the validity period begins on the date of approval, in this case June 28, 2012, and is only valid for one year. However, if you apply for a renewal of the combo card next year, the validity period will be 2 years if a visa is not available at the time of adjudication. If you have any further questions, please contact customer service at the number listed below.

Thanks
Ram

Default Applied EAD/AP late

Guys,
I'm in a fix right now. My lawyer messed up my case and I applied for my EAD/AP just yesterday while existing EAD has only a month left. I have e-filed it, but i'm not expecting it to come soon. My lawyer suggested that, I can continue working and avail the 180 day rule and since I'm on AOS that should not impact my GC process. Anybody in the same boat?

Default Combo Card for 1st time?

So I take it those of you who got their first combo cards (EAD and AP) always had a 1 year validity and then the next year you applied got a 2 year one? Is that correct?

Default EAD-AP Combo Doubt

I applied for my wife and myself for EAD-AP together. Both of us did not get the combo card. If it were a combo card does the AP also will have 2 year validity? Is there a notification stating this? I would like to make an appeal to USCIS if there is a notification in this regard

I and my wife were also issued a 2-year combo card by NSC.

This was our 4th EAD and AP renewal but first time for the combo card.

They defined it as gray area...I think it is up to the officer how he understands..

USCIS - USCIS to Issue Employment Authorization and Advance Parole Card for Adjustment of Status Applicants </br>Questions and Answers

Q6. How long is this card valid?
A6. Based on the availability of an immigrant visa, USCIS will issue this card for a period of one or two years. USCIS may also in its discretion issue the card for a longer or shorter validity period, depending on the particulars of the case.

Previously I had 2 yr EAD card (and separate 1 yr AP). This time for renewal, my attorney applied together .

I got a one yr (actually 11 months) combo card . My PD being EB3I is retrogressed.

Is there any point is contacting TSC to correct this? or is it a waste of time...

Here is the final memo from USCIS website on the ead-ap card.

http://www.uscis.gov/USCIS/Laws/Memo...nce-parole.pdf

Per this memo, it very clear that those with retrogressed PD must get a 2 year combo. But appears that adjudicating officers aren't aware of this. See page 7.
