Hi everyone. Looking for any input here.
My newlywed husband arrived here with his K1 Visa on 14 November. We married (eloped due to the K1 time constraint and will later have a wedding ceremony). His Visa expires on 13 March 2017.
Yesterday we went to a Third Party Motor Vehicle Services place to change my name on my Arizona driver's license, and obtain his Arizona license. I had contacted the actual Arizona DMV back in December right after we married and they said to get his SSN first, and then all we need to bring was his passport, and his German license, and they said a German license will transfer over to an Arizona one - no need to re-test.
No DMV here in Arizona is open on weekends anymore, and without his EAD, I am working two jobs currently to support us, so that was why we went to a 3rd Party place that handles licensing. Needless to say they were rude and idiots. Tried first telling me his visa was expired and he was going to be deported. I had to get an attitude right back with the guy and point out his visa was valid until March 13th. They finally got a Supervisor to verify some stuff with US Customs and they said that his I-94 was "Admit Until" February 11th and said he would need his EAD before they could issue his license. My Immigration lawyer said nothing about this...and as far as we knew it only mattered when the visa expired.
Either way, we did fulfill the legal requirement of the K1 since we got married back in December, which is way before March 13 or also his "Admit Until" date.
But now I am in a panic because I don't want my husband in violation of anything. We are about to file for his AOS and EAD - we have his AOS Immigration exam on 1st March. I have gathered all evidence of our life together as a married couple with bills in both names, a new car purchased with the title/registration in both our names, rental agreement for our house in both names, etc. I wanted also to add him onto my Credit Union bank account but they can not do that until he has US Identification. I plan on calling Arizona DMV tomorrow when they are open to get better clarification on this and see if I can get a license for him, or at the very least for now, an ID card.
But I wanted to see if anyone had experience with this I-94 thing situation? One one aspect I am not worried since we long fulfilled the requirement of marrying before the visa or I-94 expired, but I am afraid when we file for AOS and EAD, if he has no US ID card, they will deny him.
