How long will it take to receive my work authorization card?

QUESTION: I have filed my I-485 green card application, along with an application for work authorization. I was fingerprinted by immigration last week. How long will it take to receive my work authorization card?

THE IMMIGRATION ANSWER MAN – ARI SAUER: For applications for work authorization (I-765) that are based upon an Application for Adjustment of Status (I-485, also called a green card application) are required, by regulation, to be adjudicated by USCIS within 90 days. This means that USCIS must either approve the application, deny the application, or issue a Request for Evidence (RFE), within 90 days of the receipt date on the receipt notice. If it has been 75 days from the receipt date for your application, and you have not received notice that your case was adjudicated, or you did not receive an RFE, then you or your attorney can contact the USCIS National Customer Service Center and request that a referral be submitted to the Service Center handling the application so that your application will be adjudicated within the 90 day period.

It is always recommended that you file applications to renew the work authorization card 120 days before the expiration date on your current work authorization card.

If you would like to schedule a consultation appointment with me to discuss your options, you can call my office at  901-507-4270 and my paralegal will assist you in scheduling an appointment. I am available to do consultations by phone or video, or in person at my office.

    Good morning sir I filled i 130 for my husband is got the receipt notice says that application received April 29. Do you know when I will have an update by uscis

    • There is no set time frame for USCIS to adjudicate a petition. The length of time it will take for USCIS to adjudicate the I-130 petition will depend on what USCIS Service Center is processing the petition; what is the preference category of the petition (for example petitions for spouses of US citizens are often processed faster that petitions for spouses of Permanent Residents); and how busy is the unit that is processing your petition. To get an idea of whether your petition is within USCIS’s processing times for your petition type, you can go to https://egov.uscis.gov/cris/processTimesDisplayInit.do;jsessionid=bacXD1OC9RCyFagQNRyeu , chose the Service Center that is processing your petition (written at the bottom of the receipt notice) and find your I-130 petition type on the list of USCIS Processing Time Information for that Service Center.
      If you would like to have a consultation appointment with me to discuss your options, you can call 901-507-4270, and my paralegal, Jessica, can help you to schedule an appointment.
