:guides: easily accessible at the top of the forum page. In particular, the K1 Flowchart, you seem to be at around steps 16-18: http://www.visajourney.com/content/k1flow

Good luck on your immigration journey.

Since your I-94 expires in a week, it is probably too late for you to get a SSN. You will have to wait until you get your EAD. So, to answer your actual question: no, you don't need a SSN to file for an AOS.

need? need for AOS? No. The SSN is not needed to file the AOS set, at all.

if your I-94 expires 30 june, you've missed the window to apply, K-1 visa holders can easily apply from day 2 to day 74 past the poe date, apply in visa name.

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

Hello everyone... I just wanna share this thing happened today. I applied for ssn and the guy told us that I cannot use my married name on it since i am using K1. He told us that i can change it to my married name when i get my greencard. I arrived here last month and my I-94 form OMB expires june 30,2015 which made me confused. my k1 visa expires in August.. I read one post here which says that the expiration written on the I-94 only referring to the expiration of the form,not the I-94... On the other hand, I know someone from kentucky who was able to use her married name on her ssn when she applied after they got married. she showed up their marriage license and everything was ok. i thought i could use my married name too!haha..BTW, our state is in IL. Right now, we are still preparing for AOS requirements. good luck to all of you who are processing too! :)

Some people successfully get their SSN in their married name, but your situation is a lot more typical, and so it is advised to apply for SSN in maiden name and then change it later after you have the govt. ID proof of married name with an EAD or green card.
