We will be watching this forum throughout Coronavirus/Covid emergencies to post information and to answer your questions about affected US immigration and visas:
My I485 was filed last May 2006 and my wife's June 2006. So we are nearing our time to renew the EAD and AP paperwork.
Could anyone please help me with some details.
1) How many days in advance do I need to apply?
Before you could renew before 90 days. Nowadays it takes more time and hence they ask you apply before 120 days. Go through the forums and you can find more information about it.
2) Can I file it myself?
3) What kind of documentation do I require?

4) Do I need to file for fingerprinting as well?
You dont need to file for fingerprinting. Check the above thread
5) Can these paperwork be filed online?
Sorry for so many questions but your help would mean a lot to me.
Thanks a ton in advance...
I got emails today - March 7th, from USCIS stating that our 485 cases have been transferred from VSC to Texas Service center as well. From what I found at the local USCIS office in Boston through an Infopass appointment, our case seems to have cleared the FBI name check though I don't know how reliable this information is. Not sure why VSC transferred our cases to TSC. Anyone have an idea on whats going on? Is this good or bad?
EB2 at VSC from New York
LC: FD 08/2001 AD 12/2004
self+spouse 140/485/EAD/AP: RD 12/30/2004 ND 01/19/05
140 approved: 3/2005
LUD: 12/3/2006, 3/7/2007 (transferred from VSC to TSC)
there's a large volume of cases that were filed 2004 and before that were transferred to TSC last week (look for "i-485 transferred" thread). I think that now they are transferring those filed in 2005.
I E-Filed mine and my wife's I-765 and I-131 for EAD and AP renewal 2 days ago. The following day morning I have sent out the supporting documentation by overnight FedEx.
But the Receipt number generated by the online filing system, when I try to lookup the status, it says "receipt number" not found.
Could anyone tell me how long does it take to show up in the system. Anyone with efiling experience?
Thanks a lot.
My I-140 is finally approved
