Hi, my wife got her ssn in October 2013. We hadn't tried to use it until a couple of days ago when we tried to open a stock account in her name. They were unable to verify her ssn and declined to open the account. We used an online ssn checker and it also said that that number has never been issued. So we went up to the Social Security office and they said they can't help us and said it probably had something to do with her address (which I don't see why that would be because we put the correct address and haven't moved). I'm not really sure what to do next. She will start applying for jobs soon and this will be a big problem if we don't get it resolved. Advice please!

My wife abandoned me during her first green card, and has been gone over a year now.

I just received a letter about I-751 the other day, and I don't know what I should do about it. She doesn't want me to do anything, because it is "her case" and we're getting a divorce.

arrowFiancee lives in Russia, but is Ukrainian citizen

Hi everyone,

I'm new here. My fiancee I have met 3 years ago as friends while she was in the USA on a temporary visa. We since then found each other online again and developed a relationship. I visited her in Russia recently and we dated. So far so good right?

Well, while we were communicating on the internet, she first lived in Ukraine in the Lugansk region. For those following the latest news, Lugansk turned into  a warzone, and Ukraine is fighting with them. My fiancee fled to Moscow so that she won't be killed. But when she went into Russia, she chose not to be a "refugee" because they told her that would take 2 years to process. 

So she chose a 90 day temporary Russian visa. Right now it's been 1.5 months in. 


My question to you guys: I want to file a fiancee visa because I just came back from visiting making it "bona fide". But she is not a resident of Russia, she is Ukrainian but she lives in Russia. Will that complicate things? 


Another complication: she refuses to go back to her home country of Ukraine. She even left her Ukrainian birth certificate at her old home (although she has her USSR birth certificate). 


Anyone have any similar situations of applying for a k1 fiancee visa and the bride doesn't reside in her birth country (and doesn't really have any status in the present country)?

Hey guys, my wife and I filed I485 in late May and USCIS received our application on June 2. My wife received a job offer in mid July, and she received her EAD July 29. She is filling out tax info now, but we are unsure how she should fill out her w4. Is she classified as resident alien or nonresident alien, is she exempt/non exempt, etc. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Have y'all seen this? They tried to update their system & crashed it! Now nearly all visas are delayed including K-1. I think I'm going to scream. First the TSC-specific backlog. Now this. Along with the link to the actual site where they talk about it, I've attached two screenshots from a convo on the DoS FB page where it specifically discusses K-1s.
