INS goofed on the DOB

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

We applied for Ahmed's SSN Tuesday and they sent copies of his visa, passport, ID, etc to INS for verification. Yesterday they called to say INS would not approve the SSN because they show Ahmed's DOB to be 08/28/1928. All of the documentation we have concerning the visa shows the correct date of birth, so how did this typo happen? Has anyone else had a similar experience? Any suggestions? We filed for the SSN exactly 2 weeks after he entered the US, but now we have to wait another 2 weeks to get in to see USCIS and have them fix it before we can refile for the SSN. What happens if we can get his SSN in time to get married before the 90 day limit is up?

I believe you don't need a SSN to get married. I read on VJ of many couples applying for the SSN way after their marriage.

Unfortunately, Texas requires us to get his SSN to get the marriage license. I double-checked with the county clerk's office to see if maybe the county had a specific exception, but no dice :( However, if anyone else has gotten married in Texas (specifically Tarrant County) let me know if we can get hitched without the SSN. And on a side note, can we go to another state to get married if getting the SSN is taking too long? Anybody else tried it?

As far as I know, you can get married in any state you desire. Some require a blood test and a three day waiting period. Other states, you can just find a JP or preacher, Rabi, etc. and get married as long as you have the money. :-)

Good luck.

Texas does not require the ssn if he does nto have one. He is on a K-1 visa and exempted. We were married one week after arrival at the POE. I had my ssn , photo id and his passport and visa. No problems. Your county clerk is wrong and I would have them double check the proceedures. Or just go next door to a different county. The liscense from one county in Texas is good for marriage in any county.

I do not think they require SSN in Oklahoma City, you may wanna check with them I live in Dallas and we got married in OKC as they do not require a waiting period

contact them and see: 320 Robert S Kerr Ave # 421, Oklahoma City, 73102 - (405) 713-2311

Good luck

The same exact thing happened to Mohammed. Customs entered his year of birth incorrectly when he went through JFK. It delayed his SSC about 10 days. We didn't need it to get married. Just his passport with K-1 and I-94 was sufficient. You will definitely need the ssn AND some form of state of ID for him to do other things. We have had to jump through so many freaking hoops, but when you finally have everything in order it feels pretty good.
