Hi, I received an I-485 green card interview without receiving a travel permit(I-131) and EAD(I-765) it's only 90 days?

It is very possible that they scheduled your I-485 interview right away on account of your request to expedite. However, that doesn't mean USCIS will quickly ship the I-131 and I-765 to you, they still need to process these things and go over your eligibility. It seems that USCIS is trying to move each of your applications/petitions along so that you can wrap things up quickly (most people have to wait longer than 90 days to get an interview scheduled). However, considering that USCIS is very backed up in processing many forms, including work permits, it is very possible that you could get to your I-485 interview and be approved before ever receiving a work permit (EAD). In this scenario, you would never actually receive a work permit because the green card would be issued before the work permit is even completed and the green card alone can authorize you to work. I highly recommend you retain an attorney to accompany you and your spouse to your interview for extra security and preparation.
