I live in oregon and I was wondering should I get SS# for my k1 fiance before or after we get married?? She is in the US with me right now. We will file for AOS after marriage

 

Is there a website that says marriage licenses in oregon needs a SS# before marriage?

 

thanks for your help

SSN is the first thing a k1 gets, not needed for a marriage license

Best to get a SSN ASAP bearing that they are open. Much easier to get it before marriage than after. Don’t drag your feet too long because if she’s close to her I94 expiring they will not issue a SSN

Unfortunately, SSA offices are currently closed until further notice. But SSN is not needed for marriage license if she doesn't have one when you apply for the marriage license.

I'd planned to get a SSN ASAP when I landed in my final US destination on March 15th.

 

Then, on March 16th, all Social Security offices closed. They are STILL closed, with no reopening date in sight. Because initial SSNs must be issued in person, I can't get one, especially now that they've been closed so long that my I-94 has expired. Thank goodness I checked the box to be issued a SSN on my I-765 when I filed for AOS several weeks later!

 

I have a feeling there are MANY people in the same boat right now.

Call the SSA, you may be able to get an appointment - just have to make sure they understand that your request is time sensitive and essential. I got my SSN last year so I can't say if they will accept the circumstances, but it's worth a try.

 

Per their website (https://www.ssa.gov/coronavirus/)

Quote

Will SSA provide in-person services during the COVID-19 pandemic?

Date: June 29, 2020

If you have a critical situation we cannot help you with by phone or online, we may be able to schedule an in-office appointment for you. We remain unable to provide service to walk-in visitors due to the pandemic.

These decisions protect the population we serve—older Americans and people with underlying medical conditions—and our employees during the pandemic.

I took my husband to the social security office 2 weeks after he arrived here, before we got married. I strongly recommend you do it as soon as you can, and not wait to do it when you are adjusting her status...provided the offices are open. Like the other person above me said, try to make an appointment.

Normally I would say get your SSN ASAP, but that isnt really happening.

 

We applied for the SSN with 2 months still on my spouses I94, (in February, this was before the closers). 

 

We got a letter this month(July) that it was denied because her I94 is expired..... well of course it is since they took almost 5 months to get back to us lol....now we hope USCIS gives us one, we noted that we applied for one but didnt receive anything yet.

Usually EAD is needed.
