SSN problems for AOS

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

So my fiance just got to the States on Nov. 8, 2012. He arrived on the fiance visa after approval of I-601 waiver. Anyway, we have been trying since Nov. 21 to get his SSN. It is Jan 6, and still no sign of SSN. We have been to the local office around 8-9 times. Also, we had an Infopass at the USCIS office in New Orleans. Supposedly, his papers are still being verified in New York and there's no information any of the other offices can get regarding his verification. We were planning on filing for AOS after we get married on Jan. 12. Everything I've looked at for the evidence of a real marriage deals with the SSN. He can't get a bank account, driver's license, become a beneficiary for insurance policies..nothing. So, does anyone have any suggestions? Do we still try to file it? Any suggestions? I think his I-94 will expire Feb. 5.

AOS from a K-1 does not require any proof of a bona fide marriage in the package. Apply for an EAD with your AOS, and get him a SSN based on the EAD. It looks like things won't be resolved before his I-94 expires from the K-1. Once you have SSN from EAD you can start co-mingling. No big deal. If you have an interview, you have a valid reason for not having joint accounts from the day he arrived.
