Filed: AOS (pnd) Country: Belgium

Hi everyone,

I had an infopass appointment today and found out some things from the immigration officer that might interest all the AOS filers.

1. If you are not able to create a name check or name-number match on your Social Security number this may be caused by two things. One might be that the SSA gave you a number that had already been reassigned (in which case it is advisable to go and visit your SS office asap) or in the other case which is more common... if you have "valid for employment only with DHS authorisation" your SSN is not actually activated yet. It is only given to you in order for you to do simple tasks like open a bank account. Once you recieve your greencard you must visit your SS office and ask them to issue you with a new card.

2. If like me you are going up the wall with all the time you have in your hands and were hoping to do some voluntary with with a local charity or even an unpaid internship with a company think again. According to my IO if there is a check, which is highly probably once your employer fills in your form and sends it in (she mentioned an I9 I think.. i'm not too sure) there will be a check as a pending AOS applicant has conditions on their SSN, you will be fined 10000 USD!! Even if you're doing voluntary work.

3. The officer at the infopass offices is able to let you know if your FBI clearance has been given yet or not. If your FBI clearance is not done at the time of your interview she told me that the greencard may take between 4 months and 2 years to come through.

There you go.. I hope it's helpfull to anyone.
