I will be traveling under L2 visa to the US pretty soon and plan on applying for EAD as soon as possible after I reach there.
Say upon applying for the EAD, I receive the receipt number on July 1st and I have to come back to India by 15th of July. But within those 14 days it is possible that I might NOT receive the bio-metric appointment for EAD processing. So is it possible at all for me to reach the corresponding bio-metric center (specific to my spouse's location) with the receipt number of EAD and get the test done? Or they won't entertain these requests at all?
Yes, that sort of thing has been regularly done by clients of mine in similar situations. With your biometrics appointment letter on hand, as well as proof of impending date-certain flight out of the USA, simply walk-in to the ASC at an earlier date, anytime, explain the situation and ask to be fingerprinted out of turn, on the spot, that same day. Ask to speak to Supervisor - only! He/she will agree to help you.

It never hurts to try, but whether this will be successful depends on the employees.
Mr. Shusterman's (former INS Trial Attorney, 1976-82) response to your question is general in nature, as not all the facts are known to him. You should retain an attorney experienced in immigration law to review all the facts in your case in order to receive advice specific to your case. Mr. Shusterman's statement above does not create an attorney/client relationship.
