U mean another US state? Or another country? Just keep your passport with you to prove your immigration status. And EAD if u have it and your state ID or DL and SS card.

Your shouldn't be traveling outside The US unless you have received prior permission.

You are fine as long NOT OUTSIDE U.S.A mainland (I don't know about Alaska and Hawaii) I reside in Texas and got Married in New Mexico and got no problem at all.

Just bring your passport or the AOS -USCIS acknowledge receipt letter where ever you will go just to make sure.

Happy Trip!

A K-1 Visa is a one time use item. That means once you enter the country it is no longer valid. The date on the visa is the "travel by" date; meaning you have to travel to the US by that date. Once you arrive on your visa, you will be able to print of an I-94 form--electronically. It becomes valid once you pass through border patrol. That form will say you have 90 days from your Date of US Entry of authorized stay to marry and adjust status. There is an expiration on the form, and if you carry that with you; it would maybe be what you want. If the I-94 expires, but you have adjusted your status, you are in a period of authorized stay--until you receive your green card, or a decision for AOS has been made.

So, what to carry? Passport, I-94, and maybe the I-485 form that shows you have applied to adjust your status.

First, everything the above poster stated is correct. Second, when travelling domestically you pass thru the security check point run by the TSA. All they want to see is a valid ID and boarding pass before they let continue on to the screening process. They do not care about visas, GC, or anything else as they are assuming you have already been processed by the CBP when entering the US. The only issue you may have is if you happen upon an internal CBP check point which are near the Southern boarder and a few near Canada. Those are operated by the CBP and they will want to see evidence you are in the US legally.

Good luck and safe travels,

Dave

In addition to the above responses is that CBP agents do hang out with the TSA agents at some airports. Take the documents mentioned and a copy of your marriage certificate.

If you have applied for Adjustment of Status (AOS) and have received your first receipt notice, bring a copy of that. If you have applied for AOS but not received your receipt notice, bring a photocopy of your cover-letter for your AOS package.

You might never need these items, but it's extremely smart to do so until your green card is in hand.

For travel within the US, they just need you to present a government issued ID, not necessarily a passport. But as what the others said in previous comments, it would be wise to bring those documents and supporting papers that show that you are on AOS.
