I-94 question.

13 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Me and my fiance are making final preparations to be married on April 14th. We have read that we need a copy of her I-94 to aquire a SSN in order to get a marriage license. The thing is..She was not given any paper documents that say I-94. Some say it's placed in the passport  but I looked up the image and it is not there as well. I did put in her information into the USCIS website and obtained a print out of her i-94 "number". Is this sufficient to applying for a SSN? also can I apply online? Thanks in advance for any information.

Thanks for the reply. I called my local Clerk of Court in Louisiana and it is a requirement here.

You can get your I-94 online.  Go to i94.cbp.dhs.gov and click get most recent i-94.

Thank you. I appreciate the help :)

No state requires it. The only stipulation (under federal law) is that, if you have a social security number already, you are obligated to disclose it when you make the marriage license application.

OP said they called their local clerk of court and they require it. Best to go in person and clarify.

Not sure which parish you're at.  I assume Livingston?  SSN is not required for non-USC/LPR to get a marriage license.  Instead of SSN, your fiancee must present her valid and unexpired passport from the Philippines.  She will also need to provide her PSA birth certificate.

We do live in Livingston Parish but we will be getting married in Ascension Parish since my church is located there. I already called the Clerk of Court and it is a requirement in AP.

In Louisiana, "a marriage license may be issued in any parish, regardless of where the ceremony is to be performed or where the parties reside" as long as the ceremony takes place in the state.

 

In any case, Ascension parish may also waive the requirement for SSN if you choose to apply for a marriage license there -- "If no number has been issued, that person must appear in person and sign a statement to that effect."

On second thought tho; since my residency is here. I dont think the location of our wedding ceremony is going to be an issue. Awesome! Thank you so much for that information!

 

Yup, you may apply for a marriage license from any parish in LA.  No need to delay your wedding to wait for your fiancee's SSN.

 

Congrats on the upcoming wedding!

The I-94 should have her name and number on it.      Must apply for the SSN in person

I-94 is online at CBP   https://i94.cbp.dhs.gov/I94/#/home
