A: This is an often confusing area for everyone, including attorneys and court staff. Essentially, the EAD clock begins to run once your asylum application is properly filed either with the immigration court or the asylum office if filed affirmatively. The EAD clock stops counting if the applicant or the respondent does something to stop the clock. For instance, miss an appointment at the asylum office, ask for a change of venue in the court, or ask for a continuance to find an attorney.

I suggest you consult with an experience immigration attorney how can assist you or provide you with accurate legal advice.
