Morning all!

Abdalla has arrived we were able to get his SSN but the Florida DMV will not give him an ID card. Is this normal? The woman told us it is for legal citizens only. I understand if he could not get a drivers license yet but not even an ID card?!? any one know if this was misinformation or normal?

I don't know what the rules are in Florida but in Minnesota my spouse on her 90-day fiance was able to get her Drivers Permit but when the Visa expiried so did her permit. She can renew the permit once she gets her letter from the INS that her case is in process. All we needed to get her permit was her Birth Certificate, Passport, and Marriage License. And of course pass the permit test. :)

In GA you have to be a legal resident in order to get a driver's licence. Each state is different. I suggest you contact your DMV and found out what you need to do in order for a driver's licence to be issued

Good luck.

I don't believe you were given correct information.

Information on required documents to obtain a Florida DL or ID card can be obtained at http://www.gathergoget.com/


Improved USCIS Form G-325A (Biographic Information)

Form field input font changed to allow entry of dates in the specified format and to provide more space for addresses and employment history. This is the 6/12/09 version of the form; the current version is 8/8/11, but previous versions are accepted per the USCIS forms page.

I was told I had to have an EAD before I could be issued an ID. They wouldn't accept my I-94 because the 3 month expiration date DIDN'T establish my intent to persue "residence" in Florida. An EAD did do that because it was valid for a year.

I tried to argue it, but even a supervisor wouldn't budge.....and I left feeling very confused. Now I have both the EAD and GC...I'm going back!

ID card rules are by state. What is the state rule? The woman you talked to has no clue what she is talking about if she said "legal citizens". There is no such thing as "legal" or "illegal" citizens. There are citizens and aliens. Your fiance(husband) is a LEGAL alien. Some states require you have a green card or an EAD for a state ID. Check the state laws online, make sure you have the needed documents, and next time do not leave until you speak to trained personel.
