My children and I have a pending asylum application and our work permit is about to expire. We qualify for the renewal,but I am just wondering if I can just renew my work permit and not my children's? The thing is that every renewal is $410 and right is very difficult for me to renew all of them. Will I have any problem if I don't renew my children's work permit?
It will only be a problem if the children need permission to work.
The above is intended only as general information, and does not constitute legal advice. You must speak with an attorney to discuss your individual case.
If they don't need to work, they don't need the EAD.
The answer given here is not complete and based only on the information given in the question. The answer is general in nature as a full consultation would be required in order to give a complete consultation. The answer should not be relied upon as the only possible solution.
If the children are not of working age and you obtained EAD's for them in order to get SSN's you do not need to renew the EAD's. If your children are of working age and plan to work they will need valid unexpired EAD's.
I have 33 years experience and practice immigration law only. My answer to your question is general in nature and not to be construed as legal advise or as establishing an attorney-client relationship. For additional discussion regarding your personal situation a scheduled consultation is required.
If you have already used the EAD to obtain their Social Security numbers and they are not yet of working or driving age I don't see any reason why you need to renew their cards.
