Thread: Please Help with EAD

  1. #1
    This is regarding my EAD card receipt #EAC******X valid from 06/15/07 to 06/14/08.I had orginally applied in March and
    got the approval in May.However I wanted to cancel my application in March itself, as I was
    not planning to graduate in May as intended.When contacted USCIS, I was told it was too late
    to cancel the production of card, and I was advised to wait till the card arrives.When the card
    arrived I made an appt. in the local USCIS office(Newark,NJ) and was told that I can still cancel my OPT
    and that I had to write a cancellation letter and attach it with the card and send it back to USCIS before
    my effective start date of June 14th 2007.I did exactly as I was told to do and got a conformation
    that my documents for cancellation reached Vermont office on 7th Jun 2007.

    In July, when I got a job offer, I was planning to take CPT and accept the offer, Unfortunately,
    I was told by my school's designated school official that I was not eligible for CPT as I already
    had my OPT approved as per her system.I contatced USCIS to conform this and they said my
    OPT was not cancelled as it cannot be cancelled.This is a complete contrdiction to what the
    previous USCIS offcial(Newark,NJ) told me- that I could cancel.Shocked I requested my card back,
    I was told to apply for a replacement card, filled out an application at the local office(july 19th) and
    had a biometrics test after two weeks on Aug 7 .After 2 months 10 days I was hoping that I would get
    the card, I made another appointment on Oct 2nd to follow up on my case and I was devastated by the
    immigration officer's statement who told that now I had to write a letter to Vermont office requesting
    to send me my card.or else apply for a new application.Pls. suggest what should I do.

    Wow! People all around you are doing everything, no, dying, in order to get what you already got: work authorization in the US. Yet for some unworldly reasons, you requested it to be canceled. Whatever your matter might have been, in US standards, it's a huge, huge, huge mistake. And because of your impulse-borne decision you have to carry the full brunt of its consequences. You can't expect any positive outcome from your more recent EAD application. The USCIS doesn't issue a new EAD while the previous one is still valid. So, your best bet is to request for your old one to be returned. Unfortunately, it depends on the USCIS's impulse this time around, no longer according to yours. No choice, my friend, just wait.

    thanks rough neighbor....can u tell me if I am eligible to stay in country till the validity of my EAD card date?

    Your OPT is basically the practical application or furtherance of your academic curriculum off-campus; and you being a nonimmigrant foreign student, your legal stay is dependent on the D/S provision of your F-1 status; therefore, it's the uninterrupted school-student relationship that determines the legality of your continuing stay in the country, not your EAD.

    Thanks for replying, Can you suggest me as to what I should do in this case?

  7. #7
    You came here as a foreign student. In order to stay in the country legally, you have to maintain such status by staying enrolled and by attending your classes, either academic or practical. Or, in the alternative, change or adjust your status to another visa category to "bridge" your lawful stay. You'll be out of status if you do anything less than that.
