Attorney Mooradian has recently assisted multiple clients with work authorizations in a variety of contexts. First, Attorney Mooradian recently assisted a client who had a pending asylum application. Attorney Mooradian was able to obtain a work authorization document for this client through following the asylum clock rules. In asylum cases, a client will often be able to prepare an asylum application prior to a hearing date. In those cases, the respondent or applicant may "lodge" their asylum application to begin the asylum clock. Following the applicable waiting period, the client is able to apply for work authorization is pending.
Attorney Mooradian also assisted multiple clients who have pending adjustment of status applications to renew their work authorization while waiting for adjudication of the adjustment applications. Additionally, he recently applied for a client to renew her work authorization and along with an application for renewed DACA status. Renewals should be done well in advance of the expiration of the authorizing document, and Attorney Mooradian can meet with clients on an individual basis to help ensure timely renewals.
