Compelling Circumstances EAD

We recently filed an application for an EAD based on compelling circumstances for a client with a serious, debilitating medical concern. The applicant was on an H-1B status. We provided a petition to USCIS outlining the applicant’s medical history and the ongoing treatment that showed the progression of his illness, which limited his ability to perform his job duties. He was initially placed on short-term disability but as the condition progressed, it was necessary for applicant to be placed on long-term disability. We received a Request for Evidence from USCIS requiring additional documentation to show that the applicant was in compliance with his H-1B status requirements. The case was approved.  It took approximately 100 days to obtain the EAD following the initial application.

Compelling circumstances EAD approved
