The things they want to see is your passport, your marriage license, and the photo album of you wedding. I suggest you leave #12 to #15 at home.


There is no room in this country for hyphenated Americanism. When I refer to hyphenated Americans, I do not refer to naturalized Americans. Some of the very best Americans I have ever known were naturalized Americans, Americans born abroad. But a hyphenated American is not an American at all . . . . The one absolutely certain way of bringing this nation to ruin, of preventing all possibility of its continuing to be a nation at all, would be to permit it to become a tangle of squabbling nationalities, an intricate knot of German-Americans, Irish-Americans, English-Americans, French-Americans, Scandinavian-Americans or Italian-Americans, each preserving its separate nationality, each at heart feeling more sympathy with Europeans of that nationality, than with the other citizens of the American Republic . . . . There is no such thing as a hyphenated American who is a good American. The only man who is a good American is the man who is an American and nothing else.

One thing they look for that I don't see above is proof of joint residence - lease/house purchase agreement/joint utilities/driver's licenses with the same address/letter or affidavit from someone who has knowledge that you live together. Add at least one of these and you'd have more documents than they would hope to see.

On my interview they also asked for a certified copy of my husband's birth certificate (even though we had sent that with the forms already).

Good luck! It's not as scary as it sounds and in most cases it's really easy for them to tell if the marriage is genuine.

*Edit: I just saw your husband is deployed out of the US, but maybe you still can bring some proof that you lived together before he had to leave.

My husband is stationed in Italy, and I'm from the Philippines. i went to the us on a tourist visa, and the wedding proposal was a surprise. My husband just came home for 2 weeks to see me, so thats the only time we spent together as he had to go back to italy for his job. We stayed in his parents' house, we dont have our own house yet. We got married just this January thats why i cant present any lease of house. plus the utility bills, since we dont have our own house yet, no utility bills. I dont have driver's license yet since for me to be able to apply for one, i need to have SSN which i am still waiting along with my EAD. but maybe i'll get an affidavit saying that we lived together for 2 weeks.

I think take it all and it will be enough. Good luck to you!!

Thank you! whens your interview?

You actually dont need to have your ead to apply for you ssn#. I guess different ssa offices has different rules. You can actually wait 10 days to be on the SAVE system and then you can apply for a ssn number. I hope that was helpful. Good luck.

This is only possible if you came on a K1 visa. I think the OP got married in the US on a tourist visa.

Being able to get an SSN with a K1 is due to a legacy quirk in the Social Security rules. There was a time when some states required an SSN to get a marriage license, and a K1 has to get married within 90 days of entering the US, so the Social Security Administration was issuing SSN's to K1's, but marking the cards "Not valid for employment". A Supreme Court ruling has since banned states from requiring an SSN before issuing a marriage license, but the Social Security Administration is still issuing SSN's to K1's. I expect they'll eventually catch up with the changes in the law, and stop issuing SSN's to K1's.

I know I can apply for SSN, but when i called SSA the lady told me to wait for my ead. Plus she asked me for proof of residence, one of requirements to apply for ssn. I'll call again SSA and USCIS so i can ask about it.

Are you still living with his parents?

Yes, I'm still living with his parents. If ever i get approved, i'll go to italy in October, because he is stationed there, but right now he is deployed in Afghanistan until last week of september. Whyd you ask?
