Can I use I-797C Biometric Notice for EAD instead of Receipt Notice
I filed for I-485 in mid-June 2007 but never received the receipt notice
(due to the issue described in this thread: http://immigrationvoice.org/forum/sh...=undeliverable (USCIS email: I-485 Receipt Notice returned as undeliverable)).
After months of calling USCIS (probably called at least 10-15 times over past 6 months) and having the lawyer send a written letter, I still did not receive the receipt notice as the customer service reps kept telling me that USCIS doesn't send a duplicate receipt notice.
When I saw that one of my friends who had the same issue received a "Replacement Receipt Notice" after calling them numerous times, I decided to call them again. I was able to convince one of the reps to put in a service request requesting "resend whatever was returned to USCIS as undeliverable".
I finally received a letter from USCIS that they will resend the receipt notice but it has been a few weeks since then and I still have not received the promised receipt notice.
Now I need to file for EAD ASAP but it requires you to attach the receipt notice (Notice of Action I-797C or I-797??).
(lawyer didn't file for EAD with I-485 as I have H1)
So my question is:
Can I use the Biometric appointment notice (ASC Appointment Notice I-797C) instead of I-485 Receipt Notice I-797 to file EAD form I-765 as a proof that I filed I-485 ?
What are the odds that they will send my EAD application back saying that I need the actual I-485 receipt notice?
What are my options?
Thanks in advance!
