Applying for Social Security Number
7:26 pm December 13, 2017

Hello Guys,

Another chapter has now just started; my fiancee and son entered the US on November 15 , we are planning to get married within 90 days according to the law and I wanted to apply for their social security cards so that I can be able to claim them in my tax return. I reported to SSA this morning and they have told me that I have to provide the form i94 for my fiancee and i765 (Employment Authorization card ) for my son who is just 9 months old.

My question is to know if I will be able to claim them in my tax return without SSNs? on the i765 form , they are asking for A# but I think no A# had been given to my son (k2); so where am I going to find that number from to be able to apply for the EAC?

Also, my plan is to marry my fiancee within 90 days and delay the adjustment of status until I am ready financially (to pay the fees to adjust their status). I have called the USCIS and they told me there is no deadline as to when the adjustment of status has to take place; can anyone share his/her experience about this ?

Please, What can I do if I want to claim my dependents in my tax return without social security numbers? the EAC is more than 360$ for a baby of 9 months old; I read somewhere and advised to apply for ITIN; how does it work? Please guys, share your own experience of just a piece of advice with me. I thought the stress was over!

Visa denied

Hello guys,

My fiancee and my (biological) son had their K1 visa interview this morning and they have been denied.

The reasons: Original copies of Affidavit of Support, More proof of relationship and copie of divorce decree.

I am confused! I have been communicating with the Embassy for a month about what documents to submit and they have never mentioned "copy of divorce decree" even the affidavit of support was mentioned a week before the interview just because I kept asking them if I had to submit that and they told me NO at the beginning!!

I have visited my fiancee twice in less than 10 months. I have even traditionally engaged her and organized a party for that. Pictures were submitted! Plus we have a son together!! But they are asking for the proof of relationship!

Please guys, help me! What can I do ? What type of proof will be more than a son , engagement party with a turnout of almost 60 people and proofs of meeting twice in person for less than 10 months plus copies of financial support thru western union can I submit?

Am I missing something apart from the original copies of Affidavit of Support? I would like to add that 2 days before the interview, I scanned the Affidavit of Support and asked if they were accepted and if we were good to go for the interview and they said yes! But surprisingly everything has changed at the last minute! Please help me with your ideas guys!! I am really disappointed right now!

Affidavit of support for Fiancee

Hello guys,

I have just read something on the USCIS.gov website and it is a bit confusing.

First I would like to inform you all that our case was already forwarded to the Embassy and now we are waiting for the next step.

At this time I am trying to gather all the paper work and just have read this :

"If your relative is either a K-1 .... You do not need to submit an affidavit of support at the time.... Instead , you should submit an affidavit of support at the time that your fiancee adjusts status to permanent resident after coming to the US."

What does it mean? I am trying to fill up the form i-134 and also trying to find a co-sponsor and reading this is really confusing! Can anyone give me a technical explanation for this? I can't find any previous experience with the Congo-Brazzaville Embassy anywhere!!

Does it mean the form i-134 is not needed?

Please your inputs will be much appreciated!!

I129F approval

Hello guys,

After replying to the RFE almost 2 weeks ago, I finally got a mail today saying my case was approved! ?

I just have a few questions and guidance I would like to ask you guys.

The first thing is the notification says the approval has a validy of 4 months. what does it mean? they have told me to allow at least 30 days before contacting the NVC and there is already an A-number for her in the approval letter. So I would like to know why I have to contact the NVC?

And I have lost my job a month ago, I am really trying my best to find another job. I would like to know what would happen if I am still unemployed by the time she is ready to take her interview? if there is someone who was in this situation before. Please tell what to do (a part from looking for a job of course...) to respond to this situation so that my fiancee doesn't get denied because of my unemployment. Any ideas and guidance will be much appreciated!

And finally, what is she going to bring on the day of her interview? We now have a 2 months old baby together.
