Default file the EAD and AP for me and my wife using #A Number

Filed concurrent I140/I485 on 2nd July(filled by employer's lawyer-CA)

Received receipt for I140 on 10th Aug-These are arriving separately, I'm afraid. The 485 receipt has not yet arrived, but the I-140 comes with it the A-number for the case.This does provide us with a means of tracking the case once it reaches CIS.

Q: Is it recommend that we file the EAD and AP for me and my wife
using the A-number as a reference to match up to our previously filed
I-485 or shall we wait till the receipt notice of I-485.EAD is imp as my wife is on H4.

Regards.

as far as I know A# of I-140 is different form A#of I-485 . Some people even dont have a# on I-140

If you have not filed concurrently EAD and AP with I-485 , you need to wait for the I-485 receipt number I beleive.

A# and receipt number are different. You cannot substitue one for another

Default In my opinion...

In my opinion, it would be better if you file your EAD and AP once you receive your I-485 receipt notice. Filing it without the notice might just cause you some delays because they would have to look for your paperwork to match it with and with all the backlogs happening it won't be easy for them to sort through all the mess. Having the receipt notice will make it easy for them to look for your I-485 application. Good luck!

I believe A# of I-140 it's the same A# for everything, it's your "immigrant number".

zoozee, you can't track anything by A#, it's a privacy issue also. You track stuff by receipt number.

zoozee, for EAD you better have I-485 receipt (although you are not required).

Right your A# is your 'SSN' for USCIS. It will remain the same across all applications/approvals from now on. if you get an H1 extension based on that I-140 even the H1 approval notice will have your A# on it.

Default A#

Did you get A# on your 140 receipt notice ? Guess A# comes only with 140 approval . Please clarify.
Thanks

My lawyer told me the i-140's A# has no meaning. And it will be a different A# on the i-485 will be a permanent number thereafter.
