So I now have my K-1 visa and am in the States. Two days ago, my fiance and I went to the local Social Security Office to retrieve my SSN since I still had one from my previous F-1 student visa, but misplaced the card. We were given the number, I applied for a new card, everything went fine.
But when the lady behind the counter looked at my K-1 visa and then looked it up in the system, she discovered that apparently, my first name and middle name had been put together, both as the first name.
She told me it would be best to inform USCIS about that immediately and make an appointment with the local USCIS office to change that.
Until then, she said, I would have to enter both my first and second name under "first name" when filling out future documents.
The number she gave me to call is of course the main USCIS phone number and I've been having a very tough time just getting through.
The lady at the Social Security Office told me that minor errors like that would usually be quickly resolved but didn't tell me how that would be done, and exactly how quickly.
Our wedding is on February 14th, in two weeks. We would also like to go ahead and open a joint bank account and a joint health insurance account but is that even a good idea at this point?
I guess I'm just worried that whichever changes need to be made to my first name in the USCIS system will take longer (as pretty much anything takes longer with them) and delay anything else we might need to do.
Has this happened to anyone else on here?
Thank you in advance!
