From 1997, Chowdhury was met with numerous delays in processing interim EAD (Employment Authorization Documents). USCIS explained the delays in EAD to negative information obtained during the background check that delayed the EAD approvals.
Since the government could not properly account of the delays, the court found no substantially justified reason for its delay in processing the EAD application and awarded $30,025.80 in attorney’s fees to the plaintiff.
The main problem with delayed EAD is for employee not able to work as employers follow strict visa rules in employing a person on payroll.
This year we applied for two year EAD renewal and my spouse’s EAD is renewed for 2 years and my EAD is not yet received. And recently the system got improved very well that EADs are receive in a month’s time.
