MO Drivers license expiring on I-94 expiration date

11 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My fiancé entered the US and came to live in KC on June 9th. We got married July 6th, we were able to get his social security card and a drivers license for him. When we went to the DMV they were able to issue him a drivers license but they said they could only issue it to the date of expiration on his I-94 which is in September. My question is, we are going to send all of our paperwork in for AOS on Monday, when USCIS receives this, I know we will get a 797 but will it change the I-94 date or update it?  It looks like the MO dmv will only accept a passport and I-94 for K1 visa applicants. Any help is appreciated.

Once the I94 expires, it expires.

Some states offer extension of the temporary 90 day license by showing the I485 Noa1 receipt notice but most will not.

Most states will only issue a license once the EAD or GC is approved and that was something that we just accepted as we knew that when we came in on a K1 Visa. 

If you needed to drive, a Spousal Visa would have been better.

Check your state's DMV for documents required for Non US Citizen DLs.

It varies by state.

The I-797 receipt for the I-485 will not change the I-94.  After it expires, he will be out of status, but granted "authorized stay" while his adjustment of status is pending.  Some states require an EAD or Green Card to issue/extend a driver's license.

The I-94 date won’t change. He will be in a period of authorized stay once you have the NOA1 for the AOS packet you submit. He will have to wait until he has an EAD before he can get another license. One of the (many) pitfalls of the K-1...

Yeah, we fully understand what we took on choosing the K1... just want to check our options on driving. The DMV webpage says that for adjusting status you need “Immigration documentation indicating status AND one of the following : 1.) employment authorization document I-688B or I-766
2.)Passport “

I was not able to get a DL in St. Louis until I got my EAD. Didn't want to get one which would expire with the K1 because I was using my old DL.

So I did all the exams with I-94 and visa and went to the DMV once I've got my EAD.

 

These are the accepted documents for REAL ID:

Looks like they still dont' accept the 797C which you will get once filed for AOS. Maybe you can who knows.

Damn, well we knew it was going to be harder with the K-1. Just didn’t factor in all of the little things and forgot about the license. Not the end of the world, but would have made life easier.

Then likely you will be out of luck until you get the EAD.

Yes he will need to wait until he gets his EAD, and then the expiration date on his license will be the same as the EAD expiration date so he will need to renew it when he gets his green card and then again when the green card expires.
