Would this be a problem?

Hi everyone,

I have done a ton of research and got a lot of questions answered by this site already, but was unable to figure out anything about this one possible situation.

I am looking to file for CR-1 for my wife who was here on a J1 Visa and transferred her status to F1 not too long after. She was issued a SSN with "Valid for work only with DHS authorization" while on J1. During the winter while on F1 status she worked for maybe a month or two at a retail store and used that SSN.

When looking at the G325A form, it requests all employment. I do not know if she had DHS authorization at the time, but the company did not give her a problem to hire her. If she did not have DHS authorization, is it a problem that she was employed briefly? Will this even be checked? What is my best course of action here?

Did she receive a W-2 statement at the end of the year or any official paystubs showing taxes paid?

She should have a pretty good idea if she was working legally or not. If it was a major retailer, I can't imagine them hiring her illegally, but for smaller operations I guess it's possible...

She was working illegally as I am sure she knows and it is not a problem.

She did receive a W2 but it was for such a short time she didn't make enough to need to send them in.

I think it was only a couple weeks part time, this should still be listed on her G325a right?
