We have not received any of the documents yet. I will scan them to IV as soon as we receive them.
The status messages don't necessarily mean that you will not receive a combo card. I had same status update but in the end received a two-year combo card (albeit starting from the approval date there by losing two months).

HTH!

I am working on the formal document Pappu, I can leave a space for examples if you have them, you can just include them? I have one of two of my own that I am including in the document.

TO the director USCIS ,


Subject : Pre july 1485 filers pay $740 every year for EAD/AP renewal , which we think should only be paid once.

Dear Sir,

During the july 2007 , there was fee hike for EAD/Ap application filing. At this time, the changes in fee increase we think were not thought through correctly somehow for those who already have their I-485 applications filed. we think that we are paying an amount of $740 for EAD/AP renewals for every one or two years. For a family of four it will cost $2960 renewal fee every one or two years the EAD/AP is renewed. With the Current backlogs and retrogression, a person from India who has filed I-485 in 2007 july with the Priority date of Nov 2006 in EB3 category, it will be aproximately 20 years to get a greencard, so for a family of four he would have to pay $29,600 by the time he gets his green card assuming 10 times renewal. The post July 2007 I-485 filers pay only once an amount of $740 per person for EAD/AP till they receive the green card which looks to be a more resonable amount.

We urge you to look into and review the fee structure for the pre july 2007 I-485 filers to be more reasonable.


Thanking you,
Immigration voice

Default conversion cost for Pre July2007 to post July2007

If they don't want to waive the fees; we should request a one time conversion cost that will enable us to receive free EAD and AP for life.

Default job change

I am looking for job change in IT. For that I need some training.
Does anybody has any experience with the Desi training organizations advertised in sulekha.com like slakenet, Xcel resources, NYSYS, BA technologies etc ?
Do they just take money and give some training ?
How is quality of those training ?
Do they give any job or help in placement ?
Thanks

I can give one such case, but the card is now expired. It was for my son, only one year combo card. We are already in process of renewal and this time we did not apply for AP as we learned lesson last time. We are planning to send separate AP application only because of the above. If it helps, I can send the details.

I have completed the draft letter and have sent it to Pappu incorporating all these points. I am hoping that all members please send examples of these scenarios so that they can be attached along with the document and be shared with USCIS on the volume of these problems that we face.

Thanks

Default EAD Fees

I have filed I 485 in July 2007. When I renewed EAD AP last year I received one year approval instead on two years. So this year I renewed and sent a cover letter requesting for a two year combo card and recevied it within four weeks. But I will be paying fees for every renewal while others who filed after fee increment in July 2007 get free renewals.

Default EAD AP issues and resolution

I thank IV, pappu, seahawks and others for taking up the EAD/AP issues.

They have issued me a new EAD card with these two issues: 1) A one year validity instead of two years and 2) The new validity date starts about three months before the current one expires.

I have emailed info at immigrationvoice.org with my contact details, Alien#, EAD-Receipt# and attached scans of the following four documents:
1) my current two year EAD
2) the New one year EAD
3) I-140 Receipt that shows my Priority Date November 2004
4) I-485 Receipt

The following are the details of my current and the new EADs:
1) My current 2 year EAD expires on 8-28-2012.
2) I received my new card few days back. I was issued a 1 Year EAD(+ AP Combo card) with a start date 3 months before the current one expires. (i.e. 6 months effective; Because I now will have to apply on 2-6-2013 and will get a new card with a start date of 3-6-2013. So from 8-28-2012 to 3-6-2013 is about 6 months)
3) My priority date is November 2004 EB3 India. The priority date is nowhere near getting current. It is in fact many years away.


thank you & regards

You are right, my husband received I-512 Combo Card with two year validity but lost 1 month in EAD and 3 months in AP as the effective date is the date of approval. If IV want any more info then I can give.
