It mentioned to refer paper based instruction at some point of time. And from there, I could get this information:
........two photo
........photocopy of California ID
........photocopy of photo page of passport

Also it was mentioned that I must not mail application, instead the Confirmation Receipt alongwith any information needed to sent by mail. In fact two copies of "Confirmation Receipt" was generated, one was Applicant Copy and other for USCIS.

Attorney might be right, but we tried to follow the information provided during e-filing (assuming it to be more relevent). When it reached USCIS, there was LUD for that.

E filing is simple fast & easy. Simple meaning the processes is staright forward it also charges you the right fees, mailing address for the application to be sent to,what documents are to be sent along. It gives you a softcopy of Recipt of application and generates a recipt number. I did and efiling in Nov end last year and I got my EAD by Jan end with my FP being waived off as USPS returned my FP notice by mistake saying that the notice was undelieverable as I recently had gone for FP for AOS just before efiling my EAD(FP for AOS was Oct end) but I had to write to them with explanation of events and proofs that I had recieve EAD recipt and FP for AOS on the same address,my app was approved as soon as they received the explaination

mariner5555 04-25-2008 12:22 AM

can anyone who mailed their application(i.e. mailed instead of efile) ..tell about their experience ?
for my wife - I was planning to renew it by mail as we wanted to avoid the fingerprinting notice ..we took the FP just 4 - 5 months back ..I don't know why they want so many finger prints ?? really sucks !!

Refer to http://www.uscis.gov/files/form/I-765instr.pdf page 6 (Required Documentation). I have been using digital camera to take picture and print on photo printer, so I don't remember exactly, whether same was used in I485.

Code 2 and 3 are for ASC: finger printing, photo and signature.

EXCERPTS from instruction PDF:
The passport-style photos must be 2 by 2. The photos must be in color with full face, frontal view on a white to off-white background. Head height should measure 1 to 1 3/8 from top to bottom of chin, and eye height is between 1 1/8 to 1 3/8 from bottom of photo. Your head must be bare unless you are wearing a headdress as required by a religious order of which you are a member. Using pencil or felt pen, lightly print your name and Alien Receipt Number on the back of the photo.

You should file EAD where your 485 is currently being processed or was transfered. For example my 485 was filed at NSC but we got our 485 recipt notices from TSC so i filed my EAD at TSC even though we filed our 485 was intially filed at NSC. 485 Recipt Notice copy is one of the documents you will be sending along with your application .

How soon can Advanced Parole be applied? Is it 120 days, less, more?

Upto 120 days before current AP expires.

Excerpts from http://www.uscis.gov/portal/site/usc...0045f3d6a1RCRD

Filing Period for Renewal of an Advance Parole Document:

If you are applying for renewal of your advance parole document (I-512L or I-512), USCIS will accept and adjudicate Form I-131 filed up to 120 days before the date your current Advance Parole document expires.

Is Finger printing required only for efiling or both paper and efiling for EAD renewal?

Img 04-28-2008 03:38 PM

EAD application returned
 
A different experience. Filed my 485 in Texas (company is in TX). Live in Kansas, applied for renewal at Tx service center. Application was returned saying that I need to file based on the jurisdiction where I live in. Anyone in this situation ? My attorney say we need to apply where 485 was applied. Any suggestions?

Thank
RK

I had a big question on the above !!!! if you e-file, do you have to send photographs (only for EAD ..not asking about AP)??
also, if you efile - do you have to send copy of driver license ???
I thought - you have to send
1) confirmation page
2) 485 recpt copy
3) and maybe the top portion of the previous EAD card ..please confirm ..will really appreciate the same !!
