EAD

AOS interview next week, mother in India on AP

I am a US citizen, had applied for my parents GC in October 2009. Mom underwent fingerprinting three times here, but did not get her AOS done in time. End of last year my father (who got his EAD and AOS smoothly) had emergency heary bypass here, and then they had to leave back for India for more tests. Mom left on AP. Subsequently I wrote a letter to NBC, MO to ask them to expedite my mothers case. Yesterday I received a letter stating that she has go to Philadelphia USCIS office next week for "Completion of application to register for Perm residence." Mom is in India now.

You need to contact USCIS customer service for guidance. Definitely put something down in writing that you are requesting a rescheduling. Maybe asking your Congressman's assistance is the best way to go for rescheduling.

NPTE license

After clearing the NPTE license exam do we need to go for health care worker screening or with EAD we can work?

If you already have an EAD, for instance as a derivative beneficiary, you only need to fulfill the State licensing requirements.

H1B extension or EAD

I am currently on my H1B extension and my employer filed a petition,I-140 under EB3 category which was approved. I cannot file for an adjustment of status at the moment so if my H1 B visa expires before I can file for the AOS in that case does my employer have to file for an extension for H1b or is it the EAD. I am confused if they are two diffrent things or one and the same. Please advise.

EAD and H-1 are two different things. You will get your EAD only after you file the 485.

Self Employed while on EAD

I am employed with H1-B and EAD. My wife has EAD through my petition. She is looking into working as an Independent Consultant (Self Employed). Is she allowed to be IC under EAD?

I see no issues at all with the derivative beneficiary being self-employed on EAD.

With I-485 pending can I be an investor ?

My 485 is pending and I am on advance parole and EAD, my employment based GC priority date date was June 2006. I want to be an investor in my friends start up company. I wont be leaving my current job but only investing in it. Should that be an issue If I dont have my GC?

I see no problem with it, especially, if you are a passive investor who takes no action to manage or conduct the business of the entity invested in.

Lost old EAD card for another OPT application

I am currently a PhD student and preparing for application for OPT. Previously in 2004 upon earning BS degree, I got OPT and worked for a summer. In preparation for a new OPT, I realized that I need to provide copy of front and back of the previous EAD card. However, I cannot find the card. I just found copy of I-765, I-94, and I-20 for the previous OPT.If I submit without copy of the previous EAD card, will I be likely to be denied for the new OPT? Also, what is the safest way to deal with this situation.

First, discuss the possible solutions with your international students office. Second, call USCIS customer service and ask for solutions. Third, provide whatever you have with a full explanation to USCIS when filing the new OPT.
