Can I work if my EAD renewal is in process?
You will not be eligible to work when an EAD application is pending with USCIS.
Do I need an employment authorization card?
If you are lawful permanent resident (green card holder) or a conditional resident, you do NOT require EAD to work in the US.
Can I get a Social Security number with an employment authorization card?
If USCIS approves your application, you will receive two documents by mail: 1. Employment Authorization Document (EAD), also known as the “I-766 card” or “work permit”, and 2. SSN card.
When I can I get a work permit, if i apply for asylum?
Once 150 days have passed and you have applied, the government has 30 days to give you (or deny) your EAD. If you was granted asylum status, you not only gain the right to work in the U.S., but don’t need to apply for an EAD with which to do so.

PREGUNTAS FRECUENTES

She was perfect! It was such a luck to have Julia Greenberg referred to me by my acquaintance. She is the most caring and helpful attorney I have ever worked with. She is very professional and knowledgeable in the immigration law, and she gave me great advice! I appreciate most that she is always available by phone or returns missed calls shortly – this is something that many attorneys in NYC do not do or have their assistants do who never give the correct answer. I approached Julia to help me prepare for my citizenship interview since I had, frankly speaking, not an easy case, and she did the best  job I could expect. I could not imagine how my interview would have gone without her; her support was significant! If I ever have a question about any immigration matter I would definitely ask Julia for help again. Awesome

Anya Shapkina  on July 6, 2017

Julia Greenberg helps me during the interview process and advises me on the process followed. She is very supportive and handles. She impressed me not only with the professionalism, but also with the art of communication as an outstanding attorney.She is quick to respond to any question that I have. Julia has helped me every step of the way with my case. Thank you!!

Alie Keshfedinova

Julia is very professional, competent and knows how to get the best deal for her clients. What we appreciated about her service was that she always answered our calls or got back to us in a very short amount of time. We had a very stressful issue with the officer but Julia was able resolve it and have our case successfully processed the same day. We could have not done it without her. She is a smart lawyer and a great negotiator with a wonderful personality. Hire Julia Greenberg if you want to get a real result!
