Implied status for work?

Asked almost 2 years ago - Miami, FL

My work permit expires April 15th, I got married to a citizen and already sent in all the paperwork. I received a letter acknowledging they received and are processing my case .. is there an implied status so I don't have to be out of work for the time while I get the new work permit?

    Answered . No. You should have an unexpired employment card. Otherwise, you may be dismissed from your job.

    For help in trying to seek expedited EAD processing schedule an appointment with a competent and experienced immigration attorney or contact USCIS. Good luck.
