Thumbs up EAD/AP Renewal Detailed Guide

Hello Folks,

Recently I have successfully renewed my EAD/AP card by applying myself without any attorney help. As a matter of fact its pretty simple and straightforward. Here are detailed process.

EAD Renewal:

Put each set of documents in separate covers and write "I-765 application" or "I-131 application" with name and A# on top and mail them together as single package. If you are applying for your spouse as well, then it would be 4 sets of documents in 4 seperate covers and mail them together in a single fedex package.
Check the address you need to send in the instruction document
http://www.uscis.gov/files/form/i-765instr.pdf
If your I485 receipt number starts with EAC or SRC, then send to: Dallas Lockbox
If your I485 receipt number starts with LIN or WAC, then send to: Phoenix Lockbox

You need to apply 90-120 days before expiry date, preferably 120 days. I applied on Feb 6th 2013, got email as per G-1145 in three business days, receipt notices in 10 business days and finally got the cards on March 12th 2013. To my surprise I got 2 years extension.

Hope it helps!!!
