      I'm not an expert but, I think that you have to wait until your I-130 is approved and you file the I-765 (EAD) with the I-485.
      Quote from I-765 form
      " File your EAD application with a copy of the receipt notice or evidence that your I-485 (application for permanent residence) is pending"

        You can apply for Employment Authorization card when you file I-485 (adjustment of status). But to file I-485, you need to have I-130 approved.

          Unless you have filed for Adjustment of status, you can not get EAD. EAD is issued during the pendency of AOS.
          Good luck.

            You could have filed the whole AOS package at once.

            I-130, I-485, I-765. We did. Had our interview, hubby has EAD and SS#. Waitng on background checks.
