Hi all - after 19 months my daughter and I received our visas last week - yay! However, when I took my daughter to get an SSN I was told we could not get one as our visas are conditional. This means she cannot apply for financial aid for school or get a part time job etc , She just turned 18. Is there any way around this? Does this mean we cannot get a drivers license, insurance etc. We are permanent residents now yet can't seem to be able to do anything Canadian citizens by the way. Any help would be appreciated. The real kicker is if I had known I could have put off the interview until June and our two years would be up and none of this would be happening

WOW you ran into a real idiot at the SS office. But if you got SS just a week ago Ut was probably too early and you weren;t in system. Gve it aother week go back and ask for the supervisor and apply.Hopefully your SS ard will come without you having to even go to the office. But anyway go to the office in a week nd do as I I suggested. Not everyone is versed in immigration rules and regulations.

What do u mean " I could have put off the interview until June and our two years would be up and none of this would be happening?" You still need a SS card regardless do anything in the US.

The two year limitation has to do with when you enter the US, not when you have the interview. I.e, if your POE had been in June, you would have gotten a permanent rather than conditional green card, and no need to adjust status in a few years.

The person you spoke to at the SSN office don't know what they're talking about. All US residents, whether conditional or permanent, are entitled to a SSN. Did you tick the box on the DS-260, to have the SSN sent to you?

I will be married for two years in June and then my visa would not have had to be conditional

That as nothing to do with a SS card. Sorry they are an idiot. Just go back in a week and ask for a supervisor next time. You will be fine. Matters not if yru green card has arrived in the mal either (sometmes the idiots down there don;t know that ether.) You have a temp green card stamp in your passport so show that plz You are good to go when you go to the SS office. The 2 week wait is to sync up your POE data sometimes t takes a few days to get you in the database depending on where you live some have gone the next day after POE some a few weeks.

But being conditional has nothing to do with it.

Some SS employees have no knowledge of immigration or have their own "knowledge". I'm a conditional resident and I got my SSN two weeks after I arrived.

It might help if you go to a different SSA office so you avoid dealing with that employee again. Definitely speak to a supervisor if you get rebuffed again, but give it a couple of weeks from your entry into the US to go so that CBP has time to enter your details into a database called SAVE. The SSA use this database to access your details.


ROC from CR-1 visa (Green Card expiration date was Nov 24th 2016)

 

Link to the evidence I submitted. Be sure to send evidence spanning your entire marriage (especially for K-1) or as far back as you can. Just one or two bank statements will not cut it. I primarily focused on the two years of living here since I came in on a CR-1. If you don't have the fundamentals (i.e. joint accounts/policies), you can explain why in the covering letter. E.g. "While we do not have joint utilities, we both contribute to them from our joint bank account".

 

September 26th 2016: I-751 package sent to CSC

September 28th 2016: Package delivered
September 30th 2016: Check cashed
October 3rd 2016: NOA1 received with receipt date of 09/28/16
November 3rd 2016: Biometrics received with appointment date of 11/14/16.
November 14th 2016: Attended biometrics appointment
October 30th 2017: Infopass appointment to get I-551 stamp
February 26th 2018: I-751 case number (aka the NOA1 receipt number) becomes trackable
March 14th 2018: Submitted service request due to being outside of processing time.

March 15th 2018: ROC approved. 535 days (1 year, 5 months and 17 days)

March 29th 2018: Card being produced

April 4th 2018: Card mailed out

April 6th 2018: Card in hand. Has incorrect "resident since" date. Submitted service request on I-751 case (typographical error on permanent resident card) and an I-90 online.

April 2018 - August 7th 2018: Tons of service requests, emails and now senator involvement to get my corrected green card back because what the heck, USCIS. Also some time in May I sent a letter to Potomac telling them I want to withdraw my I-90 since CSC were handling it.

August 8th 2018: Card in production thanks to the direct involvement of Senator Sherrod Brown's team

August 13th 2018: Card mailed

August 15th 2018: Card in hand with correct date. :joy:

October 31st 2018: Potomac sends out a notice stating they have closed out my I-90 per my request. Yay for no duplicate card drama.
