No one can travel on EAD. EAD is for employment authorization. AP is for travel. You cant mix and match the purpose of them.
If you dont need to travel or if you have a valid H1 stamp for travel, dont file for AP. If you want to travel and if your stamp has expired and dont want to apply for new stamp, then file for AP.
If you want to work for your employer and continue there and if you are sure of your job security, then you dont need EAD, and dont apply for EAD. However its a good idea since EAD is a great option of you are suddenly fired or laid off. EAD makes it easy to search for jobs coz the employer doesnt have to file your H1 and you can join them immediately without any hassles.

I am going for my interview on 23rd January to Mumbai. I was just trying to find out whether I can call KCC before leaving US to find out if my approval notice is in the PIMS system or not.
Did you call KCC to check if your approval is in PIMS system?
Please find the details of how we complaint to our client management regarding L1 violation ....(for some of you guys who are interested in educating uer clients)
Step 1. Collect the email id of uer CEO and 8-10 executive managers, make sure that your groups CIO/CTO s email ids are included, get the email id of HR Head/Legal Dept/Immigration Dept of your client (CC them in the email).
Step 2. Create an anonymous Id with something like "Against Fruad"
Step 3. Formulate the email as given below
Subject: Fradulant Activity by Vendor - CTZ Tech Solutions ...For Eg.:-)
First Paragraph: What the Fraud/Violation Is?:
Mention the L-1B violation by these companies and how these resources are legally prohibited from working on staff augmentation assignments, mention the L1 reform act of 2004, provide the link to USCIS website and attach the .pdf file with L1 reform act. Mention the list of employees at the bottom of the email.
Second Pargaraph: Why They Do This?: Key points .. NO wage restrictions, NO numerical limitation and mention the H1 visa lottery in 2006,07,08 etc. NEVER talk abt corporate greed in this whole email (hope u got why!).
Third Paragraph: How they do this?: Mention about the petition which has to do nothing the current project they work on and the visa interview where these guys tell abt someother projects and clearly mention how they gets deployed to projects where they don't have eligibility to work and skills they cannot be utilized for.
Fourth Paragraph: How to Prevent this: (To show that you are sending this to resolve an issue and not to complicate one) ... mention about how easily each hiring manager can avoid this by setting visa criterion for all jobs including contract and temporary jobs.. once criterion is set by hiring managers these vendors cannot violate the same. For Eg. Hiring managers set the criterion that a new contract position can only be filled by Citizens/Green Cards/EAD/H1 s... so L1 violation doesnt even come into picture.
Last Paragraph (BUT NOT LEAST)
Mention the NAME of atleast 5 resources (and their organisation) working on L1, their projects, technology on which they work and how they violate L1 by working on these projects and technologies.
BELIEVE ME ... WE WERE PARTIALLY SUCCESSFULL ... NO MORE NEW ONSITE CONSULTANTS FROM THIS VENDOR ... but client is not yet ready to review the existing consultants.. looks like they are having a internal probe into the matter...hope we'll get some good news regarding the same too.

Good old hardcopy and mail
My coworker and his spouse got both physical card and CPO mail yesterday on the same day itself . His PD is Jan 2005, EB-2 India and Nebraska service center.
hair a Mage of the Blood Elf
PD: Nov 2005 EB2 @ NSC got current in August.
We were in India when my wife got a FP notice in July. Missed it completely but was lucky that the lawyer realized we were on vacation and requested a postponement of FP appointment.
The original FP appointment notice was for July 7th and we never received a second appointment notice until Aug 20th.
In the meanwhileI travelled back to USA and opened SRs, Infopass and sent emails to NSC, Opended an Ombudsman inquiry, contacted senators separately for myself and for my wife. I got GC approval on August 10th.
My wife had her FP taken on Sept 3rd and today we received CPO email for her too. Good luck to all who are waiting and I suggest do everything you can like SRs, emails, contacting senators, ombudsman inquiry, infopass appts. Not sure what worked.
My Main conern was that my AOS (principal applicant) would be stalled because my spouse (dependent) had expired FPs and we missed an appointment. Apparently this turned out not to be the case.
Thanks IV for a lot of useful information. All the best to everybody.

hot Night Elf amp; Blood Elf: why
I had soft LUD's yesterday (9/19) on all I-485 applications in my family and on the (July 2007) EAD's for my spouse and me. My PD is May-30 2006, so I'm wondering if they are looking at low-hanging fruit for the next month (or to hang the fruit!)
Me too! my SLUD were on 09/04 - again on the 485 and 765 applications.

1. Intention in sending the flowers is to gain attention from USCIS and the media.
2.Do you know one thing, USCIS director himself helped us more than half to gain media attention by making a statement and forwarding those flowers to the Hospital.
3. If there are 'n' flower orders, they will reach 'n' families in the states with our message in them. Our initial goal was to gain the attention of USCIS director and media. Now we are getting a bonus of 'n' families and their mouth publicity to our problem.
If you sent flowers, and you differ in thinking atleast have patience and see the result in couple of days. Don't do any bad at this point.
Lets hope the best.

One more thing.
If you decide to apply multiple 485s with each other as dependents, then file just one first. Wait. Gets its A number and put that number in the other application. This way you will cover one pitfall of multiple filing. It will not cause confusion at USCIS end.
one thing to consider though: with the number of 485 filings that are expected in July, receipts are probably going to take 8 weeks or longer to come through (just ask teh H1B filers this year). By then the PD for the other spouse would have probably retrogressed. Another thing to keep in mind...

Currently at least there is no requirement to notify and you only need to prove you still have a similar job OFFER (not necessarily working) if and when there is an RFE.
Only good thing happened to us in last decade, as far as I can remember, is AC21 and concurrent filing.
All these immigration laws are designed to keep us indebted/bonded to the employer. They might see this as a liberating provision and try to chain us back. This may or may not happen, but just my paranoid reaction,.
Hope AC21 don't go away like labor substitution has. :(
i don't what is the problem you have with AC21? it works just fine and nobody has a problem with it.
if you ask them to mess with it, and it seems to have no problem, they will either make it worse or take it away.
i think you guys are far too risk averse and want everything guaranteed in black and white. it does not work that way and we are not so important in the scheme of things anyway.

If your Notice date is in Sept 2007, we need to wait for our turn. Look for the NOTICE DATE on your 485 application.

With the June visa bulletin, my priority date became current. My Labor and 140 already approved. When can I apply for I485? After May 31 or before May 31.
Thanks for your help.

Yesterday was a very eventful day for me...in the afternoon my wife got approved and 12 hours later we had to call in emergency 911 to take her to the hospital as she was having such strong chills and violent shakings..we all got scared and we have a 2 and half month baby on top of that.....but with strong dose of antibiotics and drips she is better and back.....wow what a day and night.....
In any case I'll answer all your queries....I feel the option 4 is the best way to get to TSC...I have always used that....congressman's office has discretionary powers and you should use that.....use strong words it is your right......they are here to serve you unlike in India where they are there to get pocket your money....no pun for my motherland but unfortunately it is true....
Try a time frame of 4:30-5:30 EST to call the TSC or NSC for that matter...ppl are in a better mood at the end of the day and on thursdays and fridays.....ping your lawyer and ask him or her to intervene......if you know for sure your case is preadjudicated write it strongly in your mails to DHS and others.
I had in fact attached the previous year letters and their responses back to me in my last mail to Napolitano and it was really quite strong.....I am sure it is hard not to take a note of it......I don't mince words and I believe that one should fight for one's rights....
I have been associated with organizations like ASHA, AID and DISHA for long and that have taught me a lot too.............
Again your attitude should be "You have nothing to loose"...so make a best case for yourself and go for it...
Folks please call it all counts.
