  • When will we get EAD?

    I m new to this green card process.
    I heard that there are 3 stages in green card process
    1. Labour approval (thru perm - takes 2 weeks to 3months)
    2. I140 ( 3-6 monhts)
    3. I480 (6 months)
    Most of the people whose I140 got approved are waiting to file I480.Because its in retrogresson.What does it mean?
    When do People get EAD?I mean after/during which stage? If we get EAD, can we work using EAD?

    Thank you

    If you are in retrogression that generally means that for your labor certification category ( EB1/EB2/EB3) too many people from your country have applied for I-485 than there are immigrant visas available. So you have to wait for you turn until all the people ahead of you get there I-485 approved.

    You can get a EAD when you can apply for I-485. Becasue it's issued based on a pending I-485 application. So if are in retrogression you can't get a EAD.

      1. Labour approval (thru perm - takes 2 weeks to 3months)
      -------- from the filing date it can be approved in 3 months
      2. I140 ( 3-6 monhts)
      -------- 4-6 months from filing date if no RFE
      3. I480 (6 months)
      ---------I-485 read the other member reply

      -------- the PD is not current for them
      When do People get EAD?
      ----- when you file EAD at the time of I-485 filing
      I mean after/during which stage?
      ----------- when I-485 is filed/pending then you can file for EAD AP
      If we get EAD, can we work using EAD?
      -------- you can work with EAD but use of EAD will invalidate H1 status, better try to be on H1 status
      Thank you
