  • Question on form I-765

    Hello all,
    I applied for a U-Visa back in July of 2015 so I know I still have a long wait ahead of me. Since I am married my husband was added into my application.
    Yesterday, I received a call from my lawyer saying that she thinks it would be a good idea to send an I-765 application for my husband to hopefully speed the process of my application. We had already sent the I-765 form for my husband along with my application, but she says that the first application is in case we do get approved for the U-visa the second one is if we get approved for deferred action. Does this sound right? I was not aware that we needed to send I-765 forms one for U-Visa and one for deferred action. Has anyone heard about this? Thanks

    Yes, that's correct. If you do so, once you get the DA you get the work permit based on DA, otherwise you will have to wait another 90 days to obtain the ead. My husband and I applied on June 3rd 2014, and we did not apply for a ead based on DA, so we will have to wait. (Although we could apply for them right now) I will send an email to our attorney and ask.
