An Employment Authorization Document (EAD), frequently referred to as a work permit, provides an applicant the ability to lawfully work in the United States.  Work permits are frequently sought by non-citizens who are in the process of applying for lawful permanent residence (green card) or another immigration petition. The experienced immigration attorneys at The Law Office of George K. Gomez can help you renew your work permit if it is set to expire!




If you wish to immigrate to the United States or have already done so, you will need a lawful permanent resident card (green card), an employment authorization document (work permit) or an employment visa (L-1, O-1, EB-1, etc.) to lawfully work in the United States. It is important that you do not engage in unauthorized employment (that is, working without a work permit) as it may render you inadmissible for immigration purposes.


The required immigration form necessary to obtain a work permit is Form I-765, Application for Employment Authorization. In preparing the application, you will be asked information regarding your manner of entry, the underlying basis of the work permit, and your biographic information. If you need assistance with your work permit application, the immigration attorneys at The Law Office of George K. Gomez will be glad to assist with your immigration needs.

Work permits are not permanent and will generally have to be renewed on a continuous basis. Your work permit has the expiration date printed on it so you’ll know when it is set to expire and when you should consider renewing it.


Getting and maintaining your employment authorization is critically important to any non-citizen. However, many individuals are uncertain as to the prospect of filling out immigration forms or whether they even qualify for certain immigration benefits like work permits.
