  • Security check delay for EAD card

    I applied for a new EAD card, my documents reached USCIS on June 6, 2014. I had a job offer and I was expected to start sometime in mid-August, but as I did not have my EAD I was not able to join in the given time frame. I filed an expedite request and got a response from USCIS saying that my case is not ready for the decision yet as the required security checks are pending. The letter further said “if you do not receive decision within 6 months from this letter contact NCSC”. This left me in huge spot of bother, because my employers want me to join ASAP as they cannot wait for long and my offer might be in danger if it takes very long time.

    My concerns are:

    1) How long does the security check typically take to complete??
    2) Also, I had made an emergency trip to my home country in July and came back, there is a mention of “Date of Entry and Port of Entry” on I-765 form. Does the change in I-94 admission number and “Date of Entry and Port of entry” cause delay in the security checks??
    3) Any ways to expedite the security check?
    4) Also, does an incorrect name on I-94 form can delay security check? ( though it was corrected later on if they check the records online)

    Would highly appreciate any help in this matter. Thanks in advance.
