How to open bank account -- Wife has SSN but no card.

My wife applied for a social security card when she came to the United States last December. She received her social security number at the office, but her card was lost in the mail. Because the social security offices are closed, she was told to send in her original passport, birth certificate, and other documents to receive a new card. She does not feel comfortable doing that. The banks I do business with require my wife to produce her social security card to open an account. Legally, she isn't required to do so, but the banks policies that I know of require it. Anyone have any suggestions for her to open a bank account?

Can I make changes to joint sponsor at green card interview?

I was laid off a week before my fiance moved to the US on a K1 visa. We married a couple days after she arrived, and then we filed the i-134 papers. Because I was laid off, I needed a joint sponsor. My employer brought me off of layoff since then. I now have enough income to satisfy any financial support requirements to my spouse. Is there any way to free the joint sponsor of legal and financial obligations to my spouse? My spouse's green card interview is next week.

What kind of child custody papers do I need for the green card interview as the husband of an immigrating spouse? My ex-wife and I never filed any formal custody papers. We had one son and he is staying with his mother. My ex-wife has custody but we agreed our son could stay wherever he wanted. He will be eighteen next February and will be graduating from university next June. There is a child support agreement in the divorce papers. I pay her $400 per month.

Getting Social Security Card after card was lost in mail.

My fiance arrived in the United States on a K1 visa in mid-December. We married and she applied for permanent residence and work authorization. At the beginning of February, we went to the Social Security office to get her a card. They said she would receive a Social Security Card in the mail within the next four weeks. After not receiving it, we returned to the social security office at the beginning of March. The Social Security office said they had made an error in our address. The card had been returned to their office and they would resend it. They did give my wife the SSN issued to her.

We did not receive a card. We received a letter. The letter says:

"We cannot issue you a Social Security Card at this time because:



She already has a Social Security Card issued to her, but it was lost in the mail to an SSA error. Getting an updated I-94 would require her to leave the country and come back? Any other way to get her card resent?

Joint sponsor and minimum income?
8:26 pm December 30, 2019

Earlier this month,

1) My fiance came over on a K1 visa with her 9-year-old son.

2) I was laid off from my job as an IT analyst.

3) My fiance and I married.

I have my own 16-year-old son.

I have no current income, so I lack the necessary income to support a family of four. My savings and assets are less than required as well. I require a joint sponsor.

A retired family member who rents out rooms for extra income agreed to joint sponsor me on the i-864 documents. Through a combination of retirement plans, social security, and room rental, she should be able to joint sponsor my wife and her son based on income. Although she would be able joint sponsor me based on assets, the documentation to prove such assets would be extremely difficult.

I am thinking she would be required to show enough income to support three (herself, my wife, my wife's son)--$26,662. She would not have to show enough income to support me and me son as well. Is my thinking correct?

Question 2: Any caveats about how she should best support her income?
