Default How much time to get the EAD renewed?

Hi
any idea how much time it takes these days to get the EAD renewed.
I will be sending my papers on Aug 25th.
My current EAD expires Nov 25th. (so have 90 days).

1. What's the current renewal time .. I will be posting it (to avoid the fingerprinting hassle)

2. What happens if it doesn;t come before the 25th of Nov . ? What are my options.

I plan to switch jobs .. so all info will be a life saver

Thanks
V

USCIS say mail 120 days before expiration date. Mail the packet and hope for the best. Donot look for options as you have no or little choice. While switching ask for H1B for your security.

1. any idea on how much time EAD's are taking for renewal now?
2. also is it better to file online or physical?

hmm .. checked the latest form: Is this not applicable now?

Interim EAD. If you have not received a decision within 90 days of receipt by USCIS of a properly filed EAD application or within 30 days of a properly filed initial EAD application based on an asylum application filed on or after January 4, 1995, you may obtain interim work authorization by appearing in person at your local USCIS District Office. You must bring proof of identity and any notices that you have received from USCIS in connection with your application for employment authorization.

it looks like paper based is faster than online since you need to go to finger prints. and according to my experience avg time is 60-90 days . I received mine in 60 days. applied on June 13 and received on Aug 15th at TSC.

...risk losing a couple of months on your new EAD (renewal) - go ahead and file exactly 120 days before your current EAD expires.

I made the same mistake - since, I received my EAD the first time in 3 weeks - I was laid-back about it, this time and filed on Jul 8th (ND - Jul 9th) - paper-filed through my Lawyer.

Nothing so far - It's 46th day running. Both mine and my spouse's EAD expires on Sep 24th, 2008 - and my wife is working on an EAD currently.

Keeping my fingers crossed, tightly and hoping we receive the actual cards by or before Sep 24th.

1. Renewals for EB3 are dead slow, could take more than 90 days but for EB2 they are fast, about 30 days.

2. From various posts on IV, looks like Paper filing is faster than E-file.

You can file for EAD renewal upto 120 days before expiry. My EAD was expiring in first week September. I e-filed at TSC in first week May. Got new EAD valid for 2 years in first week August (three months later) . Didn't lose any time because of filing early (or on time). The new ead is valid from a day after the current one expires and is valid for full two years. Also, got a 2 year ead even when the priority date is current.
