I'm an asylum applicant it has been 45 days without interview notice, I did biometrics. I have a IT consultant managerial job offer in a multinational company and I'm required to start in a month say Jan but my EAD 150 days clock ends in Mid March. Can I expedite my EAD request on the basis of: financial loss if I don't start soon?
You can certainly ask, tho' these requests are infrequently granted. USCIS will consider expediting an EAD if and only if you can convince them that , absent expediting 1)you and/or the company will suffer severe financial, 2) there is an "extreme emergent situation,"
ie, something super unexpected and urgent popped up, 2) for humanitarian reasons, 4) your company is nonprofit and its work forwards the cultural and social interests of the United States, or 5) you are involved with DOD or some other national interest work, and the US govt requests that your EAD be expedite. 6) it is in USCIS's best interest. You can request expediting by calling the National Customer Service 800 #, or by making an infopass appt. You will have to present a very convincing and well documented argument for why USCIS should expedite your EAD.
