Hey guys!! Im back

So quick update:

My fiance is here with me and we are getting married in less than 2 weeks. We will get married 3 days before his I-94 expires.. Is this okay?

Also we already got him his social security. We will apply for AOS within 2 months of our marriage.

I have been looking for info about him getting a NY state ID.. But the info is not very clear on the website.. Or maybe im looking at the wrong place. Does anyone know if he has to wait for his GC to get his ID or drivers license for NY.. Or can he grt it after we get married.

Thank you all!!!

1. Yes.

2. See the spreadsheet in the first post here, to see if you've looked where you need to look:

In some states, documentation before the green card (such as an EAD) is sufficient to obtain an ID.


06-04-2007 = TSC stamps postal return-receipt for I-129f.

06-11-2007 = NOA1 date (unknown to me).

07-20-2007 = Phoned Immigration Officer; got WAC#; where's NOA1?

09-25-2007 = Touch (first-ever).

09-28-2007 = NOA1, 23 days after their 45-day promise to send it (grrrr).

10-20 & 11-14-2007 = Phoned ImmOffs; "still pending."

12-11-2007 = 180 days; file is "between workstations, may be early Jan."; touches 12/11 & 12/12.

12-18-2007 = Call; file is with Division 9 ofcr. (bckgrnd check); e-prompt to shake it; touch.

12-19-2007 = NOA2 by e-mail & web, dated 12-18-07 (187 days; 201 per VJ); in mail 12/24/07.

01-09-2008 = File from USCIS to NVC, 1-4-08; NVC creates file, 1/15/08; to consulate 1/16/08.

01-23-2008 = Consulate gets file; outdated Packet 4 mailed to fiancee 1/27/08; rec'd 3/3/08.

04-29-2008 = Fiancee's 4-min. consular interview, 8:30 a.m.; much evidence brought but not allowed to be presented (consul: "More proof! Second interview! Bring your fiance!").

05-05-2008 = Infuriating $12 call to non-English-speaking consulate appointment-setter.

05-06-2008 = Better $12 call to English-speaker; "joint" interview date 6/30/08 (my selection).

06-30-2008 = Stokes Interrogations w/Ecuadorian (not USC); "wait 2 weeks; we'll mail her."

07-2008 = Daily calls to DOS: "currently processing"; 8/05 = Phoned consulate, got Section Chief; wrote him.

08-07-08 = E-mail from consulate, promising to issue visa "as soon as we get her passport" (on 8/12, per DHL).

08-27-08 = Phoned consulate (they "couldn't find" our file); visa DHL'd 8/28; in hand 9/1; through POE on 10/9 with NO hassles(!).

In Michigan, my wife was able to apply and receive a driver's license with her SSN, I94 and proof of Michigan residency. Not sure about NY, but with the I94 expiring soon, you will most likely have to wait until you receive an EAD/AP card before applying. Once the I94 expires, you are in a sort of limbo until the US government acknowledges a legal right to be in the country.

Good Luck!
