i was married with a USC and i was under abuse, now i'm willing to apply for VAWA and I-485 concurrently, she only did submit the I-130 when i was living with her, my question is: can i get a EAD if i Applied for fee waivers on I-485 due to my financial hardship ? or i have to pay the I-485 fees before getting the EAD, thanks
You will only have your EAD if your I-765 is approved.
Just as an aside, what makes you think you will be granted a VAWA self-petition when you are in fact a man? In practical terms, while VAWA petitions are liberally granted fpr women, those are hardly ever approved for men, no matter how hard the "abuse "they suffer. I hope you have a good attorney who is advising you on this.
