Need help- paperwork mistake

Hi,

I'm one of those who's been renewing EAD annually for the last 3 years- I usually apply around two months prior since the renewal usually comes back too soon and costs you at least a month or so.This time when I got the receipts I realized I'd made a mistake with the name on the application- I'm waiting to call cust. service when they open up on Monday; has anyone else been through this and what should I expect- does this delay my application?

Thanks in advance.

I had the same problem last year and i called the customer service to get it corrected.
You have to wait for the card to see if it gets corrected. There is no other way to find out until you recieve the approved card, but generally it will be corrected.

supporting documents for e-filed AP

I e-filed AP yesterday. Could you tell me what supporting documents I should send? I saw this list of docs earlier on this thread. Are all of these needed?

• 2 two photographs;
• Copy of I-485 filing receipt notice;
• Copy of I-140 approval notice;
• Copy of front and back of I-94 arrival/departure card
• latest H1B approval notice;
• Color Copy of driver’s license;
• Color copy of passport’s biographic page;
• Copy of Birth certificate.

Do I need to send color copies?

thanks for your help!

I have to file for EAD and AP extensions for self and wife. This is the second extension after the initial filings. So far have done this through my Immigration Attorney.

Now thinking of doing it myself. Can you please share your thoughts on what to send etc. Did u do paper based or e-file. These rules keep changing everyday, so thought I will ask you since you have done it recently.

But i want to know "What is this Part 7 supplement? Is everyone submitting this Part 7 application for AP renewal "?

Urgent Help with AP filing

Hi

I am trying to file Paper based Advance Parole ( I-131) for me and my family.

I have few questions regarding process and forms. Appriciate your hlep with those.

(1) I Last enetered as F-1. My F-1 visa stamp has expired. I currently have H-1B approved but never stamped on my passport. My I-140 approved and I-485 pending.

On form I-131 in section 3. "Class of admission" what I should write " F-1 "or "H-1B"?

(2) If I check on "More than One trip" in Part-7 section -1 of the form, does the process differ in any way? Does it need any extra fee? Does it need any extra document to support the multiple entry AP application? Will it affect approval in any way? How long (one yr two year?) is AP, once it is approved, is valid?

(3) I never had applied for EAD based on pending I-485 and does not intend to do so in near future.

Does I need to apply for EAD to get AP? and in Cover letter for my AP do I need to mention EAD or it is not required?

(4) For my sons ( 15 yrs age) can I sign as a person preparing form?
thanks for your help with AP application.

Hi,

I am applying for AP. I downloaded Form I-131.

I am confused as the Instuctions for Photographs mentions the following:
"The Photo should show three-quarter frontal view of the right side of your face. with your right ear visible."

As far as i remember this practise was stopped and the normal passport style photographs were acceptable. If so then why is the instructions for the form still carrying this old info? Please clearify

Regards.

Are guidelines on page 1 up to date

Except for the filing fee are guidelines on pg 1 of this thread up to date? The reason I am opting for paper filing is that the nearest ASC from my place is 5 hours drive and to make matter worse according to USCIS website my city falls under the jurisdiction of another place with is 9 hours drive!

Thanks
 
Hi Gurus,
I need your advice on my situation.
I have applied my wife's EAD / AP ( both second) this year on my own, on 2nd Feb, 2007.
I did a mistake of applying the AP to the Chicago Lock Box facility but applied the EAD to the right one (CSC service center). I got the receipt notices from MSC for the AP and from CSC for the EAD.
I have got the EAD approved, Card Production Approved email last week where as there is no sign of AP.
So, I was wondering if I should re-apply the AP to the correct address (CSC ) or should I wait for the MSC to approve / reject it. :confused:
Please advice.

I am not sure if this is true since i sent digital pictures from walgreens for my AP and EAD. both approved with no problem. It would though safe i guess if possible to get non-digital pics.

Did anyone have issues with digital pics please post?

Received AP today!!

Hi All,

I received my AP today.

Anticipating delay in receiving my AP, I had taken a visa appointment at Madras/Chennai Consulate on March 23 (next Monday) to renew the travel visa (H1) in my passport.As you know the visa processing fee is to paid at HDFC Bank before making an appointment. I went through the hassle of preparing all necessary paperwork.

1. Is there any benefit in having the travel visa renewed although I now
have the Advance Parole document?

2. Is it possible to get a refund of the processing fee if one does not want
to get a travel visa?

3. Is the refund given by HDFC at Chennai Consulate? Do I have to show
proof of Advance Parole to get a refund?

Another point is that my 7th year extension is expiring in August 2007 and it
leaves me with only a few months of visa validity.

Has anyone been through a similar situation?

Thanks
