After getting married?

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

What happens after getting married? How long does it usually take to get your social security number and a work visa? My fiancé and I intend on getting our own apartment after getting married and it would kind of suck if he's the only one paying everything for a while.


Oh.. and how does getting a car work? Can i buy it with my foreign license?

Prepare for him to be paying for everything for a few months.

You can get your ssn about two weeks after you land, get this in your unmarried name in order to not cause issues.

Once you are married you can apply for AOS and at the same time for you EAD and AP.

You will get your EAD usually within 60-90 days.

You can't work until then, and once you get your EAD you can change your ssn to your married name.

It's a lot of waiting and doing nothing whilst your hubby works. This is why they have to earn enough to support you.

Oh and if you are trying to get a flat, bare in mind you have no credit report. You won't exsist until you start building credit, so if you joint apply there is a high chance of denial.

Get a rebuilding credit card and start building your credit.

Edit- not sure about buying a car, but in my case I can't even learn how to drive until I get my EAD... Joy.
