Default Does EAD renewal trigger I-485 approval?

I am on H1B and not using EAD at all. Look at my signature for dates.
Does the EAD renewal trigger the IO to take up the I-485 case and start processing it? Filed at NSC.

Thanks for suggestions.

With PD like your, I won't be surprised if you get GC approval instead of EAD.
Usually they handle each case differently but for I485 approval they look at each and every case filed concurently or separately.
good luck

Thanks for inputs. I have seen on , some applied EAD and within a week got GC approval or atleast hard LUD's, not sure if EAD was denied. To process EAD I would assume that 485 application needs to be verified.

EAD was approved today. Hope it is a good Sign. I am not sure why they even approved the case today when they could have approved the green card starting tomorrow.

I am guessing, the officers who approve EAD may be different from the ones who approve 485 cases.

Default EAD renewal

I got my wife's EAD card renewed today. I got it for 2 years but it says "fingerprint not available" even though she has already done her finger printing last year in Oct 2007.

Do i need to call or send the card back for the correction?

Thanks

Even my spouses last year EAD card says no fingerprint, even though we had fingerprinting done, I think it should be OK. She is working on EAD for few months now and no issues.

No EAD renewal will not trigger I-485 approval. I checked once with an IO as well as my lawyer

I have exactly the similar dates as yours. PD / RD / ND but at TSC. I thought the same but instead they gave me a 2 year EAD. I am convinced that the IOs are different who process I485 and EADs.

Default My experience

I did file for EAD renewal on June 23rd. My PD was current from June 1st. I did call June 30th by POJ method. The IO told me my case taken from the shelf and it was at IO table for review. My case was approved on July 7th. So I believe EAD renewal brought case my case pulled from the USCIS black hole shelf to a table. If your PD date is not current, this will not help. If PD is current and your RD is before the published process date, they will think to approve your case, when they look your file for some thing. Otherwise it will remain in the shelf. That is why the random approvals coming from USCIS. They do not do FIFO rule. Need luck and some kind of triggering.
