Unrestricted SS card and valid state ID is sufficient for I-9 purposes.
It is not up to the employer to dictate which documents are presented from the I-9 list, and doing so can be considered discrimination. 


CR1 / DCF (London): 2012 / 2013 (4.5 months from I-130 petition to visa in hand)

I-751 #1- May 2015 [Denied]

 

Early May 2015 : I-751 Joint filing package sent fedex next day 09:00am from UK ($lots - thanks). 
Jan 2017: Notification that an interview has been scheduled at a local office. Bizarrely still no RFE... 
Jan 2017: 2hr wait, then interview terminated before it began, due to moving my ID to another state 2 wks prior. New interview 'in a few months...maybe.'   Informed them that divorce proceedings are underway, but not finalised at this time. 
March 2017: An Interview was scheduled - marked as no-show as they didn't actually send out a notification of interview. FML 
April  2017: Filed an official complaint with the ombudsman, and have requested Senator & Congressman assistance
August 2017: Interview - switched to a (finalised) divorce waiver. Told that decision will be made that afternoon, but no problems foreseen with my case. 
October 2017: Letter of Denial received - reason given as 'I-751 petition was not properly filed'. Discovered ex-spouse made false allegations to USCIS. No opportunity given to review & refute allegations  - contrary to USCIS policy.

 

I-751 #2 - Oct 2017 [Denied] 

 

October 2017: Within 72hrs of receiving denial notice, a new waiver I-751, divorce decree & $680 cheque, sent to Vermont via FedEx overnight 9am priority.  
Dec 2019: Filed FOIA request for full A# file
Feb 2020: FOIA request completed - entire A# file received as a .PDF; 197 pages fully redacted, and 80 partially redacted. Don't waste your time!
March 2021: I-751 #2 denied for lack of evidence. No RFE, no interview, and evidence in previous I-751 not reviewed - contrary to policy. Huge errors in adjudication.

 

 N-400 - Feb 2018 [Denied] 

February 2018: N-400 filed online.  $725 paid to the USCIS paperwork wastage fund

February  2019: Interview - cancelled after a four hour wait due to 'missing paperwork' on their end. Promised Expedited reschedule.

March 2021: Interview letter received, strangely dated after I-751 denial. No I-751 interview conducted. N-400 interview and test passed, given 'cannot make a decision at this time' paper due to the ongoing I-751 nightmare...

April 2021: N-400 denial received citing recent I-751 denial as basis for ineligibility, even though it should have been a combo interview 🤯

I AM JACK'S COMPLETE LACK OF SURPRISE

 

I-751 Service Motion - March 2021 [Sent via FedEx & COMPLETELY IGNORED by USCIS]

March 2021: Service Motion request sent overnight addressed direectly to field office director, requesting urgent review and re-opening, based on errors in adjudication - citing USCIS policy, AFM and memorandums as basis for errors. This was completely ignored by USCIS.

 

I-290B - April 2021 [Withdrawn]

April 2021: I-290B motion to re-open ($675) filed 

 

I-751 #3 - June 2021 [Pending]

June 2021: I-751 #3 (27lbs of paperwork) & another $680 sent to USCIS via FedEx ($300+..thanks) .... IT'S GROUNDHOG DAY

June 2021: Receipt issued, card charged, biometrics waived, infopass scheduled for I-551 stamp number ten.....

Feb 2022: RFIE (no, not an RFE, a Request For Initial Evidence) received, for copies of the divorce paperwork that they already have 😑

Thank you for this info! That’s really helpful. But how do you get a unrestricted Social Security card? My one is before I got my conditional GC. Thanks again for this great info, it will be very helpful should my extension expire as well 💯

What visa did u enter US with?

When the SS card is unrestricted it does not have the wording "VALID ONLY WITH USCIS AUTHORIZATION " which means you need EAD card.

It would be a SS card given before one adjusted status like a entering K1 beneficiary.

Do you know if I can ask Social Security Service to get me a new one ? (Because I have not seen they have such service)

 

I got my green card in December 2018, while I received the SS card in July that year. I have not changed ever since, so everything is linked with this card. Will the number change if I ask for a unrestricted SS card?

 

Thanks!

Did u come to US on a spouse visa (CR/IR). I dont thinking are understanding what we are saying. 

Does your SS card have what I stated on it?

If it does yes you would have to go to SS office and get a new card (same # its urs for life) with out the restriction.

Yes yes I received the card when I got my EAD in July 2018, so it says the same.

The number is not going to change but you should have gotten a new card after you got your green card. I don't know if you can still do this now without the stamp in your passport.

I think I will just wait until I get my 10-year green card. They require me to mail all original documents, I don't want to give myself trouble if they lost my green card, especially right before i have to submit my I-751.

 

I am self-employeed, so I assume this won't be a very big problem for me! Thank you very much for your reply
