heyy guy! im new here and i want to ask some question... will first of all i came here in usa as a k-2 visa later after the marriage we filled for adjustment of status ( long story short it was approved im currently done with my bio metric first week of September ). Now i want to enroll in a university ( college is really expensive here) or a community college but i need your helped to determine if im qualified for fasa (i really need this cause i cant afford without an aid ). i want to enroll this coming January (fall term). Any opinion is welcome .
So what had happened was: Immigrating husband entered on K-1 had one name Filed AOS with my last name thinking we could change his name based on marriage Mailed a letter to USCIS after getting NOA hard copies requesting name to be changed to the one on his visa (included copies of NOA's with letter) Three months later received an RFE for his EAD/AP for his name Sent another letter explaining and requested his name is reverted to the name on the visa and his GC case get updated too EAD/AP issued in name requested Applied for SSN A few weeks later, GC was issued!!! But then we saw that it was issued in the name we had on his petition (with my last name) Could not update SSN with GC because his name doesn't match Applied for FAFSA in old name (the one matching SSA) Rejected at the college because his GC name doesn't match his SSA or name on FAFSA Does anyone have any ideas for what to do next? We sent an expedite request based on financial loss and that request was expeditiously denied because it wasn't emergent enough. Should we contact a senator/congressional rep? I have tried calling FAFSA, and all they can say is to get the GC corrected. We have the I-90 submitted and 30 days in we have no biometric appointment, but we may have another five more months of waiting. He may need to take less classes than we had planned on him taking because the tuition is rather high. Should we submit another expedite request based on USCIS error? Thanks for any ideas! Oh, when I say he had one name, I mean that he only had one name and no first name. Believe me, everyone gets confused with it...
