California Filers - Need your input: State ID

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hiya guys, just checking with anyone who's in the same boat during the current administration's stance on immigration and immigrants.


Have you attempted to get in touch with the local DMV office (I'm in Sonoma county) about applying for a state ID while your AOS is pending? The current crop of discussion leans towards 'nope', but my husband and I are getting annoyed that he needs to babysit me (with his state ID) whenever we need to get something done that requires some form of ID (getting liquor and sending mail out via FedEx, for example). (All cards on the table, I don't mind bringing my passport, NOA1, and marriage certificate wherever I go, but I can't do that every time I head to Safeway). 


Thanks in advance
