Miller Mayer immigration attorney Steve Yale-Loehr recently received an approval of an I-765 application for renewal of employment authorization. Our client, a Liberian national in the US who was granted deferral of removal under the Convention Against Torture by the Board of Immigration Appeals, received approval of this renewal application in just 22 days and without request for additional evidence from the United States Citizenship and Immigration Service (“USCIS”). With the receipt of their renewed work permit, they can continue to work in the United States.

Work permit renewal applications can be filed up to 180 days before the expiration of the current card. Timely filed renewal applications are critical to maintaining continuous employment authorization in the United States. With USCIS’ stated average processing times for EAD applications being longer than 180 days in some cases, having experienced immigration counsel is critical to avoiding processing delays such as a request for additional evidence.

If you are interested in applying for an initial or renewal work permit, or if you would like to explore your immigration options and need experienced immigration counsel, please consult with a Miller Mayer attorney for more information. To schedule a consultation, visit our website at
