There is NO quick way. If you do not have a K Visa or any type of Visa to work now while you are in the U.S... You will not get permission to work until you have the K Visa or you Adjust Status if you are already married to a U.S Citizen.

So, if you married right now while you are in the U.S... You can immediately after your marriage to the USC, file the I-130 Petition for Alien Relative, I-485 Adjustment of Status, I-765 Employment Authorization all at the same time..... 3 to 4 months later you would get a Work Permit EAD card, while your I-130 and the AOS is pending approval.

If you get the K Visa... You have to leave the U.S and do your interview in your home country... Which is going to be about a 4 months to 6 month wait depending on your country.....

So either way you going to wait a while to work..... It would be best to do the K Visa because they will not look on you as fraud......... On the K Visa once you get it... 3 weeks after returning to the U.S.. Your Social Security Card.. can automatically come in the mail to you. They have it now where this can be applied for along with your DS-230 Application at the Consulate for your K Visa Interview.... So, you would not have to file the I-765 Work Permit when you come in the Country...

We need a little more information!!

If you're living in the US and entered as a visitor (VWP or B2) with no intent to marry and remain, or on a student visa (F-1), intercompany transfer visa ( an L visa), or many other visas and you wish to marry, there's a possibilty that the K1 is unnecessary in your case.

However, in answer to your question, as a K1 you are employment authorised for 90 days. The difficulty is proving it, and to do that you need an EAD (or the stamp acquired by coming in through JFK). Most people don't bother to get K1 EAD because you still need a SSN to work and the waiting period for the documents makes it not worth it. Once you've filed for AOS (either in the US from your current status or as a result of your K1 enter and subsequent marriage) then you can also apply for an EAD. Either way, it's not a speedy process.

If you are living in the US, why do you need a K-1 visa?

If you are living in the US, what type of visa did you enter with?

If you entered the US as a visitor and are just staying with your fiancee, you are not entitled to a work permit, or to live here.

Visas are used to enter the US, if you are in the US already then you don't need any visas. The way I understand it you're applying for adjustment of status (AOS), am I correct? In this case you can also apply for Employment Authorization Document (EAD) together with your AOS and then you will be able to start working as soon as the EAD is approved, typically it takes 60-90 days for it, but sometimes can take longer than that. Good luck :)

We need to know:

How did you enter the US? As a visitor, or a fiance?

Have you filed for AOS? You can't do that until you're married!

Adjustment of status is not a visa, it's an adjustment from your previous status to that of PR.

If you file everything for AOS the day after you get married and there are no problems, yes you can hope for a work permit (EAD) in 60-90 days. Brace yourself, because it's more likely to be 90 than 60.
