Ok we get married within the 90 days that's a given. Is there a time period to which the AOS must be filed. Is there anything to file so she doesn't get deported in case cant file the AOS within the 90 days?

She'll be out of status when her I-94 expires, which is 90 days after she arrives. If she has an encounter with CBP or ICE then they'll probably give her a hard time, but they won't deport her. It's DHS policy not to deport someone who is clearly eligible to adjust status.

She will remain eligible to adjust status even after her I-94 has expired. There is no time limit specified in the law for a K1 to adjust status. However, until she gets a green card life can be pretty uncomfortable here. She won't be able to work, get a driver's license, or go to most colleges and universities. You should file the AOS as soon as you are able to.

As Jim said there is no AOS deadline but the longer you wait the harder it will be to adjust... not adjust status, adjust to life here.

I had to wait for various personal reasons. I've been here over a year and STILL don't have a full licence (it's winter now and I'm a bit wary of taking the driving portion in the snow which is new to me). I still don't have a job, and because I stopped working in July 2009 (to finish the K1 stuff) I've been unemployed for over a year, 18 months soon. It's stressful, it's boring, and sometimes pretty depressing.

For instance, this Christmas I couldn't send home any presents (my sister took care of it). We just brought a house, we have bills and I don't work... that's pretty upsetting to me.

Anyway, you can wait, but as someone who waited, try not to.

Good luck.

Hi there Don and Grace. Yep, you can still get your SSN 14 days before your I-94 expires. But you are right, you cant work without it together with your EAD or your green card. By the way, you look familiar to me. I think we had our medical at St. Lukes on the same day, August 18 and 19 last year. Are you from Cebu too?

let me see if i have this correctly. I just read up a little bit, from what i just read. She can get a ssn as long as we go to the ssn office with more than 14 days remaining on the I-94. So she can get a ssn. Wont having the ssn allow her to work if she chooses?

SSA does not grant work authorization, USCIS does, in order for someone to take a job in the USA they need to be a US citizen, or have work authorization from USCIS, (EAD card, Green-card, or a work authorized visa)

SSA issues a K-1 a restricted SSN card, it says "Valid with DHS authorization only" this notation tells employers to request further evidence of employment eligibility (EAD, Green-card, etc..)

You had a medical done overseas for visa, however if vaccination record is not a properly filled out DS-form then will have to see a US Civil surgeon about getting ONLY the vaccination part of I-693 done.

Shop around many doctors will try to insist on a full medical which is not needed.

Yes, you need to go to a civil surgeon to have your vaccination from St. Lukes be transcribed and have it transferred to your I-694.

Thanks for the help. Just mailed the aos package today ;)
