I485 EAD approved but AP is pending - Card not received yet

Dear Anil,
happy new year, wish all the best to you & your family in 2020.
I found my EAD Approval Date: 19 Nov 2019, but AP Approval Date is still pending so far. does it mean I need to wait for the combo card after AP is also approved too. or is it possible to get EAD independently early? Thanks for your time. :blush:

Hi @JC68913

It does seem like USCIS is waiting for your advance parole approval to send your combo card.

Otherwise, the card is normally delivered within 7 days after approval.

Dear Anil,
thanks for the prompt reply, so I need to wait for AP… however, happy new year !!

Dear Anil,
L1A under regular period,
i485 pending, no EAD & AP yet.
is it OK to go overseas & back with L1A, no impact to i485?

Hi @JC68913

I have covered travel issues while advance parole is pending here.

Dear Anil, appreciate, have a very nice night. :blush:

Dear Anil,
I just received a Receipt Notice Fee Waived - I485J. does it have some special meaning?

I don’t think it has any meaning.

Dear Anil,
may I ask for some detail? for example, if the announced Feb final action date of the green card becomes 4/1/2019, does it mean my case with priority date 3/14/2019 already be processed in Jan. or it will be processed in Feb.?

The green card case can only be processed if the date is current in final action chart.
