Hi, I would like to find an answer to the following question. I am married and my wife has applied for asylum. INS has transferred her case to the court for the further review. After 2 weeks, upon receiving the results of the interview at the INS building, the representative who renders the results told me that I am not eligible for EAD since I am in the status. However, I have consulted with the lawyer who thinks I am eligible to apply for EAD with my wife (asylee) after 150 days. Two different answers confuses me, to which I am eager to find a valid answer. Thank you for your contribution, beforehand!
