Getting Married 15 days before 1-94 expires?

Timeline

Due to circumstances, long planning, my fiance and I decided to have our wedding on Feb 10 since we have some other relatives coming over from diff places. I assume the stamped date on my 1-94 is the expiry date of my K1 and work authorization.( that would be FEB 25).

Now will it be complicated if we file AOS between the remaining 15 days? what happens after we file and not have yet been approved? will I be considered out of status?

Also, we applied for my SSN yesterday and my card will be mailed in 2 weeks...I can have my name changed after we get married right? ....We do follow the guides provided by Vj but as much as possible we still wanted to be 101% sure and confident of the steps we are taking.

You'll be fine as long that you got married within 90 days before your I-94 expires. There's no prescribed period to file for AOS after you got married but it is advisable to do it as soon as possible.

NO it will not complicate AOS as long as you get married within 90days of US entry. what happens after we file and not have yet been approved? You can file for AOS even after I94 expires but it is better to do it soon so that you may have EAD early. will I be considered out of status?

Also, we applied for my SSN yesterday and my card will be mailed in 2 weeks...I can have my name changed after we get married right? Right ....We do follow the guides provided by Vj but as much as possible we still wanted to be 101% sure and confident of the steps we are taking.

as long as you married within 90 days , you are okay.

I got my SSN in my birth cerficate name. after i got married, i went to SS office to change name. but they require me to have my EAD or green card . When i got my EAD approved, i filed again. now waiting for it for at least 4 weeks.

Social Security :

If you already have it in your maiden name and want to change it to your married name:

You will have to wait until your AOS is complete and have a green card.
