hi everybody,

im an alien who get in the states thru a k1 ... today we went to the court house and we got the application for getting married...the officer lady showed us how to fill that application...and at the bottom of that application it says that i need a socialsecurity number...but the problem is that we didnt tell her that im on a k1 visa...i thought probably she thought im an american citizen who lost his social security number or a citizen that doesnt have a social security number yet...well i (ali) felt so stupid of not showing her at list my passport...well if im too stupid and i admit it...could somebody on a k1 visa make a social security number even when he is not married yet???

No you don't need a social security number to get married.

And you aren't stupid! You're just dealing with a great deal of new information :)

Depends on state, TN and SC, and MN have been known to require both persons applying for marriage license to have SSN. Most localities will allow issuance of marriage licenses where just the US Citizen has SSN.

NOTE: K-1 is not a work visa, it is a fiancee visa for entry to the USA and marriage, K-1 is "Work Auth" primarily to be able to get the SSN, some states are strict in their interpretation of a federal law that requires persons applying for a "license" to have SSN, this can cause a problem with marriage license if only one person has SSN and the other (the K-1 holder) does not.

This is correct. It depends on the state. I live in SC and my fiance will have to get a SSN before we can get married. I found out by calling the clerk of courts.

From the MN application: (Emphasis added to the worf IF)

If you have a social security number you are required by federal and state law to put it on the marriage license application (title 42, US Code Sec 666 (a) (13) (a) MN statutes, section 144.223, and MN statutes, sec 517.08 subd 1a (1997).

Yes, list is:

Passport with K-1

Valid I-94 card

Birth Cert.

Note: you need birth cert for the K-1 visa interview, so get a few extra copies and English translations for later.

They do not take her birth certificate when she arrives in the US or at the interview do they> That doesn't make any sense to me if they do.
