What Next?

Hi Guys,

 

I'm currently in LA on my K1, and I was just worried what my next steps should be?

 

We got married yesterday and are now awaiting our marriage certificate, and I have chosen to take my partners name. If this is the case, do I have to wait for my marriage Certificate to arrive before I can start applying for SSN's etc?

 

What exactly do I need to do now, and in what order?

 

Thanks!

I would start by reading the Guides on here and then asking questions if there is anything you do not understand,


“If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.”

To change name, you need evidence of name change.   Without the marriage certificate you don't got

 

You are no longer a k1, visit the adjustment of status forum and read

I have looked at it.

So with the I-693, do I actually have to do this?  I've had all my medicals done as part of my K1 process, and they ave all of this information already.

Social Security office is closed except by appointment. Is it worth just waiting for my marriage certificate and just applying once in my married name to save trying to make 2 appointments?

You should have applied for a SSN before you got married. You might run into trouble now with Homeland cause they might not be able to identify you with the new name. Either way, SSA offices are closed so call them and see if they'll grant you an appointment. 

You can do it either way.

Sure. Use the search here on VJ and you'll find quite a couple of people who didn't received their SSN because Homeland didn't verified them.

I would have a go getting SSN, nothing to lose, and yes it is the first thing you apply for after entry.

Where does it say that a k1 needs an i693?

You should be more concerned that you (presumably) married in LA county. You won’t get a marriage certificate until long after your authorized stay on your I-94 expires.

Only if you didn't complete your vaccinations abroad and are not documented on the ds3025

The gentleman said it would only take about 2 weeks
