Default Renewal of EAD applied 122 days earlier

Hi:

I have a strange situation. My EAD expires on Sept 24th. I applied for renewal on May 26th assuming that it would be 118 days before expiry. But after applying I realized that it is actually 122 days on counting literally the days. How does USCIS count 120 days, by months assuming 30 day month or literally by days.

If it does not satisfy the 120 day critera what would happen to my application. Should I call the USCIS and withdraw the application or wait for them to reject the application. Your suggestions would be really helpful.

Thanks
Gopi

Default Re: Suggest waiting

I filed for my wife's renewal 150+ days before expiry. She received a receipt as well as biometrics notice. She recently went to USCIS to complete biometrics.

So I would suggest you wait for some more time before taking any action (like withdrawing your application etc.)

Thanks for the response. On what date did you apply for the EAD. Because this law came into effect only in Jan 2008. If you applied before that it would be OK even for 150 days.

Thanks

In fact my attorney applied for EAD renewal much earlier than 120 days expiry.

Default Last Aug Filer EAD

My EAD expires on Nov 9, 2008. I filed I-485 last August with a September Receipt date.

1. Do I have to pay a fee for renewing EAD
2. Is it too early to apply for renewal?
3. Do I have to pay a fee for new AP as it expires on same date as EAD?
4. Has it proven to be faster to file online?

Thanks!

I did the same Freaking mistake. My EAD expires on 09/28/08 and I sent express mail today (05/28/08) , scheduled to arrive on 05/29/08.

i wouldn't worry about it. Chances are it will get approved in 120 days or less. Are people experiencing a delay of more than 120 days?
