One year ago my wife (J-1) and I (J-2) moved to the USA for her postdoctoral research.
Back then I got my EAD (Employment Authorization Document), then I got my SSN and finally I was able to get my driving license with one year of validity.
Recently we got our new DS-2019 papers renewing our statuses for one more year. So I applied for an EAD renewal (case still being reviewed) and when our driver licenses expired we went to OMV. My wife got her new driver license without issues, but mine was stuck on something USCIS-related and the person asked me to try again in 2 weeks.
I did return in 2 weeks, but my case was still under review. They asked me to try again in a couple of days. I did, same thing happened all over again.
I now have a SAVE Verification Case Number which is way more than 20 working days under review, which is likely to be preventing me to get my renewed driver license.
Could this be related to my EAD renewal still being under review? Any advices on how could I sort out this situation?
