I have a couple of questions about my wife's (K-1) SSN timeline:
Jan 25 - arrival into US
Feb 12 - SSN application (waited 2+ weeks)
March 14 - wedding
March 16 - AOS forms sent (applied for SSN via 765 using her married name. Form indicated she didn't have a SSN, which was a true statement at the time)
April 13 - SSN arrived (in maiden name)
For 6 weeks after Feb 12, the SS card wasn't arriving. SS office kept saying how the application is still "with immigration" and their hands were tied. Because of this unknown timeline, we decided to send our AOS and not wait for SSN. Then it came in the mail on April 13.
1. Do I need to submit any additional docs to USCIS to correct the "blank SSN" in all AOS forms?
2. Will SS correctly reissue the new card with the new name, but the same SSN, via the I-765 request? Are there chances of them issuing a new number by mistake?
3. Should we visit the SS office to change the name on the card? Other than it being a good idea to use married name, will this help avoid confusion when SS receives the request from USCIS, given that the names will now match?
Thank you in advance for the responses.
