L1, L2 and EAD concurrent filing - EAD approved while L1 and L2 extensions are pending

Irving, TX |

Our L1, L2 and EAD applications were filed concurrently. The current I-94 expiration date for both L1 and L2 applicants is July 31st, 2014. On July 30th, EAD application status changed to Card Production but both the L1 and L2 status are still showing as Initial Review. What could be the reason that EAD is approved before L1 and L2 extension? Thanks.

The EAD can not be approved unless the L-2 is approved.


Stop wasting time looking at the online 'status' system ... it is broken and inaccurate.
