Hayward, CA asked in Immigration Law for California

Q: F1-OPT extension pending with USCIS and now I am married to US citizen. Should I apply for EAD along with i130 & i485

I am international student with legal status and I have my Stem OPT request due with USCIS. And now I am married to US citizen.

I am confused should I apply for EAD i765 along with i130 and i485?

I already appyong for STEM OPT extension for 2 years. If I apply for EAD 765 along with i485. There would be two EAD i765 pending with USCIS at same time.

A: The process you are considering is quite complicated in general, more so than just deciding whether to file for the i765 as well. You should consult with an experienced immigration attorney to discuss the details of your case.
