My I-485 has been denied while my work authorization card renewal was being processed. If I file MTR, can I work?

Wynnewood, PA |

I just confirmed that the transaction for my work authorization card renewal has been processed. (fees have been charged through my bank). I didn't receive a card yet. Right after paying for my card renewal, my I-485 got denied. My attorney is going to file a MTR shortly. I have a business, and I am worried if I can't continue to work. (My current work authorization card expires in April.) If my I-485 goes back to pending status after filing MTR, can I receive my work authorization card? I don't know what's happening since renewal fees have been already charged. Any advice is appreciated. Thanks.

Please give me any kind of advice. (not just saying that I need to consult with my attorney.)

Your attorney would be in the best place to answer your questions. If you are unhappy with representation or cannot reach your current attorney to ask these questions to and are relegated to posting questions here while paying someone to not answer yourt case related queries, I suggest hiring someone you are comfortable with and who you believe you can confide in.


I believe I answered this question already. Please see the previous answer.
