We are quite exasperated and outraged this morning. My then-fiance entered the US on August 22 using his K-1 Visa. We applied for his SSN on September 10th and were told to wait four weeks. We waited and waited. We went back to the SSA in mid-October and were told that there had been a hang-up in the system somewhere and that we could expect his SSN in two weeks. On November 9th we received a letter dated November 1st saying it was an acknowledgement that he'd applied on September 10th and that he would have his SSN in two weeks. Then yesterday we received a letter dated November 7th saying that his SSN was being denied because his K-1 Visa was going to expire on the 19th!
We married on October 20th and sent in his I-485 to adjust status telling them that we'd already applied for an SSN but that we hadn't received a number yet.
We are at a loss for what to do. Are we really stuck waiting for an SSN until he gets his conditional green card in 6+ months?
