Dear Vjers,

I hope you are fine!:)

Is it necessary to have a SSN to get married in Texas?

By checking the guides here on visajourney, it is necessary to wait 2 weeks after the port of entry before getting a SSN. I read some posts here, and read that it depends on state you get married, I am also checking online, but couldn’t find anything so far…

I thought about asking here …do you know if it’s necessary to apply for a SSN before getting a marriage license in Texas?

Thanks in advance for your replies!

I had read on the Collin County Texas web site that Social Security numbers had to be provided to obtain a marriage license so I called them and asked specifically about my fiancee comming over on a K-1 visa. I was told that she would not need a SSN.

The web sites (or printed documentation) in many counties in Texas (and probably most other states) list SS # as a requirement but if you call them (the office in charge of issuing marriage licenses) and tell them you want to marry but don't have one; they'll tell you it isn't required.

We were married in Austin - Karin didn't have her ss# just yet and it was no problem. Most folks will tell you the same thing.

I had the same question when everything was going good with my visa. I called and talked to the County Clerk, and they said the same thing also. You do not need a SSN, but you do need to bring the passport with the stamp and all the visa paperwork to make sure.

Nope, not needed in Texas - but it is a good idea to get the SSN when you can, as you can. Makes married life and the mixing of same lots easier.


Sometimes my language usage seems confusing - please feel free to 'read it twice', just in case !

Just to add, we married in Dallas Co and SSN was not required (we had applied for it but the card hadn't come in yet when we got the marriage license.)

I've read other comments on here that even if the state does require SSN's for both parties, you may be able to get them to waive the requirement for the beneficiary's SSN if you explan to them the situation and that you're fiance is here on a K1 visa.
