Pappu To Summarize based on what I am reading and facing some of it personally. Let me know if I missed something.

1. Provision to request duplicate if AP or EAD lost in mail. Currently only way is to re apply and pay the full cost
2. Streamline so that EAD and AP combo card have the same validity of 2 years if applied together
3. Current applications for AP is taking more than an average of 3 months and some in a month. We would like a streamlined mechanism where the ideal processing time should be around 6 to 8 weeks.
4. Renewed AP or EAD should be valid effective the day of the previous AP or EAD expiring date
5. If applied separately, AP or EAD validity still should be two years when approved.

Thanks Seahawks for summarizing it. We had a meeting and discussed these questions. As stated earlier agenda was to only discuss process issue than any big admin fix or new ideas. We will be posting updates in the coming days in our posts in threads. Some update will be posted today on the donor forum and then later posted for regular forum.

There was also discussion on fees. Thank you for bringing it up. It has been taken as a recommendation. We need your help to write it up as a formal document and submit it to us in an email. We will forward it.

Urgent action item.

We need a person to take a lead and help fix this problem. USCIS needs to see example cases where this problem is happening. Please collect evidence in the form of scanned copies , application number. Compile it together and articulate the problem and solution. We will forward it to USCIS to fix this issue. This is urgent . IV is you and me so we need people to take the lead and work with us to fix it .

We also had discussion on visa date movement. It is based on information from CO and USCIS. It has more info for EB2 ROW folks and EB2 India and China. We will be posting on the donor forum first. Please check IV forums in the coming days if you are interested.

There was a question on H4 being given EAD rule from a member. This is tied to one of the big fixes we have been asking 'allowing filing of 485 when dates are not current. We can only say not to expect anything on this anytime soon.

Pappu,

I paper filed my wife's application on 04/16 and included a cover letter requesting a combo card. On 05/17 we received her combo card which is valid from 05/12/12 to 05/11/13. Her current EAD card expires on 08/14/2011. AP has expired in Feb 2012.

I efilled my application on 04/24. I included a cover letter requesting a combo card with the supporting documents that I mailed. On 05/30 I received a 2 year EAD card starting after my current EAD card expires. On 06/07 I received a 1 year Advanced parole document.

In our case we are 2 people in the same house hold having different results. I am willing to send our documents. Let me know if you need our documents to provide an example to USCIS.

Thank you. We will need a few more examples to show that this problem is not just one isolated case to fix but something to be fixed for all. Please help spread the word on other websites to get more examples.

I am in the same boat, applied for EAD and AP when my date was current but got the combo card valid only for one year. I am at work right now but will scan and send the documents by EoD today.

EAD and AP Discrepancies
 
Pappu,

We applied for my husband EAD and AP renewal with cover letter asking to provide Combo card for 2 year validity. Both applications have receipt date of 5/11/12 and both receipts were received in same envelope, however yesterday I checked status on USCIS and it says that on 6/13/12 USCIS sent EAD card in mail and on 6/9/12 USCIS mailed notice of approval for AP.It seems like they have not approved AP and EAD for 2 years and also has not provided combo card. We have not received any of the documents yet. I will scan them to IV as soon as we receive them.

EAD approved in 3 weeks!
 
AP Expired April 2012

Applied EAD + AP combined (efile) as soon as entering the 'eligible window period' - Middle of May

EAD application approved June 1st week (no action on the AP, though all papers went in one mail)

USCIS sent series of emails every day (your application approved, card production ordered, your card is shipped, USPS picked up your mail, USPS delivered your card)

Arrived card has "NO RENTRY PERMIT" :mad: :mad: :mad:

But the validity of the card begins right after the current card expiration, thats the only consoling thing.
