Hi All,

Just wanted to let you all know that today my fiancé has called me and she was approved for visa finally. Interview went well and tomorrow she will go back to pick up her passport with VISA in it. Ohh yeah... :yes:

It was a long journey, no questions about that, but patience has paid off. I wish all members good luck in their journey.

I wanted to say thanks to this forum and to all member that take their time in helping others and giving good advice. Very much appreciated all. THANK YOU....

I am sooooooo happy and glad that this is done. She will be here within a month and can't be more happy about it… OMG…. It's a great day for us today.

I have not really looked at next step moving forward once she arrives here, but as far as I know now we have to get married, apply for social security card and adjustment of status. Am I missing anything???

Can someone please be kind enough and to point me in a right direction of steps to take once she arrives here. Sorry I am beyond happy and I can barely type and at work ... :lol:

Thanks.

Congrats! Well deserved, huh? :)

From what I found out... Apply for SS# no sooner than 2 weeks after she arrives (to make sure they won't deny her ss#, it takes 2 weeks for them to have her in the system). Get married..Then file I-485 together with EAD and AP - if you file them concurrently, they won't charge you extra for EAD and AP - will save you $700...and she will have her work permit and travel permit ( in case you want to travel outside U.S)...I think I-485 you file together with I-130... Am I missing anything?

Sorry but I am noob with these abreviations...hehe. What is EAD and AP?

Another question, If we apply for her SS# before we get married, will the card be issued under her current last name or that will change once we apply for Adjustment of status and then they send her SS# card with new last name?

EAD - employment authorization document - if she wants to get a job; AP - advance parole - if she wants to travel before she gets her green card

Yeah, K1 visa allows you to get a ss#... she will be able to get a driver's license and open a bank account. As soon as you get married she will go to ss office and get her name changed there. it will take a moment and its free of charge.
