My GC labor priority date is Dec 2009. Got EAD combo card (myself and spouse) for first time in 2012 and have been renewing since then. For latest renewal (approved in Jan 2019), mine got approved for 2 years and got EAD and AP combo card. However for my spouse, USCIS issued EAD card for *1 year only* (until 01/2020) and issued a separate PAROLE paper document (I-512L) with her photo on it, and it is valid until 11/2020. Not sure if it was a mistake from USCIS , but it is the current situation. Questions: (i)As spouse EAD expires in 6 months, we are eligible to apply for EAD renewal . Can we also file Advance Parole (currently valid until 11/2020) I-131 application along with I-765 application at this time and request USCIS to consider issue an "EAD and AP Combo card" ? (ii) If No, the only option left for us is renew EAD (I-765) now and file I-131(AP) later when we fall with in 6 months of expiration? (iii) Any other options? (iv) Is it any possibility to get *EAD & AP combo card* hopefully valid for 2 years like earlier with cover letters to USCIS? Can we call USCIS to correct last/latest issue of cards? It is 7 months passed now. (v) Do you recommend to go with an attorney?
