Hello everyone, I write this post with much frustration. Weeks ago my wife contacted TransUnion and they agreed to send her a letter stating she doesn’t have a credit score (for I-944). 10 days later, the letter misspells her first name. At this point, we are upset but we try calling again to have this fixed and resent. The woman understands our issue and claims to have fixed it. 10 days later, the new letter has her first name misspelled yet again in the same way it was misspelled originally (it’s one of the most common names in the US so this was particularly frustrating). We are at a loss. We can’t keep waiting to send our AOS packet off, it’s making us both go gray! :’( Any advice would be much appreciated. My wife came on a K1 and has a social security number already and has had one for over 6 months. Thanks so soooo much!
Hey everyone, Hope everyone is safe and well. So I recently moved to the USA on a K1 visa a month ago, and I am currently sorting out paper work for the AOS, so in other words the i-485, i-944 and other required forms to submit. For part 3 of the I-944, it asks: 11. Do you have a U.S. credit report? 12. Do you have a U.S. credit score? I've gone online and called Annual Credit Score, Equifax, Experian, and TransUnion (over 2 hours on hold!) to try to receive a credit score/report, but they require a Social Security Number (SSN). Unfortunately, I don't have a SSN and the SSA offices closed the day after I arrived - so I am unable to obtain one. I do have a credit card here as an authorized user of my wife's account, so I will start to build up a credit history, though it may be too recent to show up anyway. TDLR; Basically, does anyone have any suggestions on how to display evidence for the I-944 of not being able to obtain a credit report? I saw a similar post to this (click here), and feel we aren't the only ones in this situation. The best we've been able to think of is screenshots of websites of errors on credit reporters when applying, and the closure of SSA offices - and/or providing a notarized affidavit explaining the situation (but this may be tricky, given the need for witnesses and evidence). I even asked the credit reporters about being to provide a letter on their behalf, to state that I am unable to get a credit report. The best I got was a 'shaky maybe' from Equifax, if I write to them with evidence of identification - but this won't come for approximately 30 working days. Ideally though, we want to be sending the AOS forms off ASAP, and want to make this application 'watertight'. Any thoughts and help would be much appreciated - thanks!
