CASE DETAILS AND NOTES

Employment Authorization Document Application Approved by USCIS

Foreign National client sought the ability to legally work in the United States. An employment authorization document (“EAD”) gives a foreign national person permission to work in the United States. A Greencard Application typically takes between 6-18 months to get approved or denied by USCIS. Therefore, an Employment Authorization Document Application is usually filed concurrently with a Greencard Application because it allows a foreign national person to legally work in the United States while his or her Greencard Application is pending. Mrs. Huff prepared the appropriate Forms and presented sufficient evidence to USCIS and was able to get our client’s Employment Authorization Document Application approved.
