U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (CIS) has changed its policy regarding when applications for renewal of Employment Authorization Documents (EADs) may be filed. CIS previously stated that an applicant could file for a renewal EAD 6 months in advance of the EAD expiration. CIS has now decided that "you cannot file for a renewal EAD more than 120 days before your original EAD expires." According to CIS, an I-765 application for a renewal EAD received after January 29, 2008, that was filed more than 120 days from the date of expiration, will be denied as having been filed too early.
