Hello, hope everybody is doing great. I have a couple of questions maybe somebody can help. I recently filed I-485 based on marriage with USC, I did not send form for EAD since I read its optional. I have received the interview for fingerprinting coming up on Nov 17. I am currently working and I don't know how will that affect me on getting my Green Card, I came to this country on a tourist visa back in '05 I still have the I-94 from when I came, I want to know if its better to get the EAD card or no, I am just worried that if I'm asked at interview my petition will be denied. Basically I have been working illegally. Should I still send the I-765? I am working because my wife doesn't make that much and we have two kids (a 6 year old boy and a 2 year old little princess ) and I have to support them. Please advise. Thank you in advance.
