I am filing I-485 applications for my family, including my 10-year-old. If we also apply for EADs, is she eligible for one, or is there a minimum age requirement?


There is no minimum age requirement to apply for an EAD based on a pending I-485. Even if the applicant is not eligible to work based on state and/or federal labor laws, this would not prevent the applicant from being issued an EAD. (05.Nov.2020)
