My wife interview for adjustment of status will be next week. We dont have proof of joint account. She got here last Dec 2009. We went to the bank but they didnt allow to put her name on my account since she doesnt have her SSN. We applied twice for ssn. The first application was denied because her I-194 was expired so we had to wait for her employment permit, We applied for the second time last may 25. We called SSn office they said it takes 30 days, they have to forward it again to department of homeland for verification. Everything we need to do require SSN even getting state ID.

Any suggestions?

Thanks,

Did you try adding her to the utility bills (electric, gas, phone, cable, etc.)? I was able to do that without any SSN.

Is she on your health insurance or beneficiaries of any sort of retirement or life insurance? Joint bank accounts aren't the ONLY way to prove a life together.

What's the duration of the marriage, that might let you off the hook if its not too long. The IO was surprised that we had so many things joint in such a short time.

Since you guys are a K-1 adjusting status - it is likely that you're adjusting status relatively soon after being married (I'm assuming) so you're not likely going to have a lot of co-mingling evidence in such a short time - USCIS will know this. At this point - I wouldn't stress over the joint bank account. Without more information about you guys (timeline, etc) thats about all I could offer.

+1 on that suggestion. The utilities alone are a strong evidence.

I think the need to prove a joint account is a bit overblown but others have been denied because of it.

I would go back to the bank and open an account for her anyway - find another bank!

My credit union opened an account for my wife and also included her on my credit card.

If they won't open an account because of SSN I think you should have her bring her passport

and ask to talk to a higher officer. If not, go to another bank. Banks are always looking for

excuses to take our money so lack of an SSN shouldn't be a big impediment.

We also opened an account for her adult son who just graduated from the university.

No SSN. He isn't even in this country! Naturally he had to provide national identity card proof, etc. via fax.

No problem.
