I am on a J-1 Trainee visa for 18 months started in Jan 2012 expires Sept 2013. I am married to my wife (U.S. Citizen) as of Jan 2013. I am was wondering in my I-130 and I-485 package do I need to apply for the I-765 form for work authorization. Although I have a J1 work visa for a good amount of time I was wondering do I need to fill out the form anyway as in the description it states: " Other aliens who are authorized to work in the United States without restrictions should also used this form to apply for a document evidencing such authorization."
OR can i just continue on my J1 and get GC status providing it is granted before Sept.Sorry in the question I wrote do i need to apply for AOS I meant to say do i need to apply for EA? Employment Authorization? Thank you!
