As per the VJ, below are the documents we need to file after entered USA with K1 visa and get married:

I-485 Application to Register Permanent Residence or Adjust Status

I-864 Affidavit of Support Under Section 213A of the Act

I-765 Application for Employment Document

I-131 Application for Travel Document

Is that it? How about for SSN, is it a seperately form we need to complete for applying a SSN?

Thanks

ssn done via walkin at ssa office, for a k-1 visa holder.

there are some caveats - suggest you get to the ssn subforum, have a read in the pinned topic.


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

Do yourself a big favor and :guides: easily accessible at the top of the forum page. In particular, the K1/K3 AOS Guide: http://www.visajourney.com/content/k1k3aos

There is a lot of great info and tips on the AOS process.

You should also review this great thread, particularly Nich-Nick's great posting about I-693 and how it fits into the AOS process: http://www.visajourney.com/forums/topic/428381-i-693-report-of-medical-examination-and-vaccination-report/page-3#entry7127875

Good luck on your immigration journey.


Completed: K1/K2 (271 days) - AOS/EAD/AP (134 days) - ROC (279 days)

Print out your I-94 info > https://i94.cbp.dhs.gov/I94/request.html

Follow this guide for getting the SSN > http://www.visajourney.com/content/ssn

Follow this guide for AOS > http://www.visajourney.com/content/k1k3aos

The fees are listed here > http://www.uscis.gov/i-485

The fees for the I-765(EAD-work authorization) and I-131(AP-advance parole for travel) are waived when filed with a pending I-485, so include both of those too. It takes about 60-90 days to receive the EAD/AP combo card, which will allow you to work(along with an SSN) and re-enter the US when traveling abroad while waiting for the green card approval.

You need all the supporting documents for each form as well, so read the instructions for each one. You can also search here on VJ for what to include with each form if you get stumped. There are also example forms here on VJ you can look at when filling out the forms. They can be helpful.

Oh, and here are the details you need about whether or not you need to see a civil surgeon > http://www.visajourney.com/forums/topic/428381-i-693-report-of-medical-examination-and-vaccination-report/?p=6206232

Thanks, I read the guide Step-by-Step Guide on How to File for Adjustment of Status for K1 and K3 Visa Holders

but it didn't mention anything about SSN, so i am confused if the EAD card is equivalent to SSN.

Great info regarding medical :) I have also been researching information about medical requirement after entering to the USA.

you said It takes about 60-90 days to receive the EAD/AP combo card, which will allow you to work(along with an SSN)”, does that mean if I apply for EAD, I don't have to apply for SSN?

Also, under SSN guide, it said "As a K-1 Visa Holder you are eligible to receive a SSN upon producing a valid I-94", does that mean I can apply SSN before I get married to my Fiancé in USA?

Expecting my Visa in two weeks, so want to see what are the options first, if I can, i want to apply for SSN first. thanks!

Yes, you can apply for the SSN right after entry with the K-1. Filing in the maiden name is best anyway because a lot of SSA workers insist your name match what it is their system or they cannot give you an SSN and need to send it off for verification. Just apply in your maiden name before or after you are married, then get it changed to your married name once you have the EAD in your married name. If you are a male and not changing your name, then none of the name changing issues matter for you.

You can use the I-94 to get the SSN as long as you have at least 2 weeks left before it expires. If you wait until after that, you will need the EAD or green card in order to apply for the SSN.

You need both the EAD and SSN to be able to work.

Thanks! do you know if we will get the SSN number on the same day, I know it takes them 2 weeks or more to mail the card, i am just wondering if I can have the SSN number before I get the card.
