EAD Expired. Automatic 180 day extension is ending soon.


New Member

I have filed for extension of (I-765 ) EAD document and have a receipt notice of 24th November 2020. My current EAD expired on 13th March 2021. Currently, I’m working on automatic 180 day extension, which ends on 8th September 2021. My company will be unable to let me work in his current capacity without valid employment authorization. Without proper work authorization approved before 8th September 2021, I cannot continue to work. I have to go on leave of absence (LOA) which means no paycheck.

I raised an expedite request on the 8th August, 2021 but unfortunately it was denied because it does not meet one or more of the expedite criteria.

Also, since my priority date is current for EB2 (employment based) I received RFE for the I-485 adjustment of status from USCIS on 24th April 2021 and responded on 22nd July 2021.

What are my option here ?
