The Law Offices of Alice Antonovsky, PLLC takes pride in helping its clients legalize their status in the United States, apply for the right kind of visa and keep their families together through the most suitable application method.
Work Legally in the US,
Apply for a Work Permit (EAD)

A work permit is an authorization from a country’s government that allows a non-citizen to work legally in that country. Applying for a U.S. work permit (also known as Employment Authorization Document or EAD) is a fairly simple process.

First, you will need to prove you are eligible by filling out a one-page form as well as attaching the fee, photos and other required documents. Next, you must submit it to the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS).

Keep in mind that a work permit and a work visa are not the same and require two totally different application processes. Applying for a work visa to the United States, ­such as an H-1B, is a much more complicated process than obtaining a work permit.

Key Facts About Work Permits
  • In the first six years of the Obama administration, about one million illegal immigrants received work permits, as reported by the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS).
  • According to CIS, of the 5.5 million work permits issued to noncitizens from 2009 to 2014, close to one million were awarded to illegal immigrants or “aliens unqualified for admission” to the U.S.
  • The report also states that another 1.7 million work permits were awarded to people whose status was unknown, not recorded by the adjudicator or not disclosed by USCIS.
