    U-VISA : Has anyone renewed their DA EAD?

    Hello
    I'm the U Visa applicant here from Ohio. My timeline is from April 2014

    Timeline is as below

    Receipt notice : April 14th 2014
    Fingerprint date : Last week of May 2014
    DA notice and EAD card 2 year : 10th april 2015

    Nothing ever since.

    My question is that has anyone renewed their EAD received from DA? Which service center do we need to send the renewal i765 form with fee? Does it approve with in 90 days? Does the status changes online as under normal circumstances?

    It won't be fair if I don't let you guys in on my side of the story for asking these questions. I'll be losing my job in 30 days as well as my driving privileges. I've applied for renewal of my EAD in DEC 2016 and the status online hasn't changed at all. USCIS has withdrawn money from my bank account ($380). So now I'm waiting for my U-visa 4 year EAD and the renewal of DA EAD which ever comes first. I was on the phone with USCIS several times for the DA EAD renewal petition and as usual they are clueless. Higher immigration officer told me bluntly they can't discuss my case on phone because of the confidentiality nature of the case and suggested me to write a letter to Vermont service center. I did mention to the person that my renewal petition was sent to Chicago under C14 and I did receive the form i-797c, notice of action.
    Now knowing the nature of Vermont Service Center they doesn't respond to anything I'm looking for some answers as well as want to know the experience of other people who are in like my case situation.

    Thanks for taking your time.
    Good luck to all the U-visa applicants.

    Hi,

    My timeline

    Application: JAN 2014
    DA: JAN 2015
    EAD: APRIL 2015.

    I have put my application for renewal of EAD in DEC 15 2016 and online it says "Name was updated", I don`t what that means. I have received -797c only so far. No words after that. And yes I did send my application to Chicago only. If I am not getting any answer in this month than I am going to put a congressman inquiry related to that since my EAD is also expiring in APRIL and will loose job and DL. We are both in same boat. Hope for the best. Keep me updated.

    Thanks

    Hi Thanks for writing about your timeline. That actually helps alot. I've sent my renewal petition few days before you. Receipt date is 16th DEC 2016. Nothing is updated online so far in my case. I received the notice of action letter after a month exactly. My EAD and DL are expiring in first week of April 2017. I'm actually planning to move to Washington state and be able to get the DL (6 years) before its to late to get my own place there and a Driver's License. Unfortunately I'm going to leave my job. After waiting for the original U VISA 4 year EAD for more than 2 years I'm losing hope with Vermont Service Center.

    Thanks

    My timeline is very similar to yours I submitted renewal EAD Dec23, 2016 received a receipt ONLY no notice of action JUST a receipt I am a nurse and lost my job BC my EAD expired january25, 2017 my employer couldn't keep me. I had an infopass appointment @ local immigration offices to inquire about expediting renewal EAD no such luck was told to write to VSC and that renewal EAD could take 3-4months +/- i am hopeful that this is our year this January marks three years since i originally filed I918.

    My case for the EAD renewal was updated today. I had made an inquiry about my case as it has past the timeline. Today they have sent me the reply for their inquiry. I am waiting for that reply in my mail.

    Hi Thank you for sharing your timeline and so sorry you lost your job. I applied 4 months ahead of my EAD expiration date but still no luck. My friend on F-1 opt training (different than over ead) applied in Jan 17 and just got approved yesterday. I'll update if I hear anything on my case.
    I did contact a local state representative in Ohio and I'm hoping he will help me and write a letter to USCIS about my pending case. (Thanks scorpion for that suggestion).

    Congrats. Hopefully they send you the EAD card. One question how do you know about this update. Did it update on your case status. Did you e-request? Thanks and good luck.

    Yes I did e-request. And it says they have sent reply to this request but yet to receive in mail. It is not saying that they have approved my case and sent the EAD. So fingers are crossed. Thanks and good luck.

    Thanks for quick reply. By just taking a quick look how do you e-request for i-765 ? I see all other applications listed but not the EAD. Or did you call the 800 number. How long you had to wait before they replied. Thanks
